    dear friend! :) The bad guys are on the OTHER side of the curtain wall !

    You're the one taking a short 'rose-smelling break' during the pouring of buckets of boiling oil on the enemy soldiers!

    Glad you enjoyed it....

      Those folks on the OUTSIDE of the curtain wall, digging the tunnels to undermine it, assaulting the gatehouse, and hurling boulders against it with a trebuchet, are members of the local garden club wanting to get INSIDE the curtain wall for a tour.

      You could just let them in for a tour and save yourselves a lot of trouble.

          and I believe the post above is the first time ever I've been able to find some way to work it into one.

          If I ever had a full sized French poodle -- very smart dogs, originally hunting dogs  -- I've always thought 'trebuchet' would be great name for him.

          And, no, I wouldn't get one of those fancy 'poodle cuts' for him -- a straight or lion cut would be fine.

          I've been told by members of the poodle fancy that the poodle cuts date back to early hunting days. Each chateau had a distinctive trim style so their dogs could be picked out of the hunting pack. That's what I've been told, anyway.
