Finally getting a chance to fully enjoy this! Hey - wasn't that "Yankee Doodle" that the Bromley dancers were dancing to? Shocked

Fun - but I wouldn't want to get near those antlers! Laugh

You delightful sillies [In reply to] Can't Post

I love yous all.
And just for that you get to come up this weekend and sample the pristine waters(60 degrees) of Green Pond right off the diving board (which get even MOREShocked exciting the deeper you go).
No worries, there will be a roaring fire and hot steaming turkey off the bone:)...Laugh

''What connects Nature to the spiritual, or requires the presence of the latter? In positive terms, as Alkis Kontos points out, when nature was still largely experienced as integral, alive and active, 'It was the spiritual dimension of the world, its enchanted, magical quality that rendered it infinite, not amenable to complete calculability; spirit could not be quanified; it permitted and invited mythologization.' And I would add, it still is and does.''
Patrick Curry-Defending Middle-Earth-Tolkien: Myth and Modernity - chapter: 'The Sea: Spirituality and Ethics.'

May the grace of ManwŰ let us soar with eagle's wings!

In the air, among the clouds in the sky
Here is where the birds of Manwe fly
Looking at the land, and the water that flows
The true beauty of earth shows
With the stars of Varda lighting my way
In all the realms this is where I stay
In the realm of ManwŰ S˙limo

60 degrees F? [In reply to] Can't Post

At the Pond?

And here, they've been warning that just because the temps are mid-80's, don't go swimming, the Sound is only 40 F!

It's supposed to get chilly tomorrow...a roaring fire sounds nice..got any marshmallows? Smile

It probably was Yankee Doodle [In reply to] Can't Post

They dance it in Abbots Bromley to very lively tunes but in the US, they tend to use a more 'mystical' eerie tune done at a slower pace.

It's interesting how the perception [In reply to] Can't Post

What type of battle? [In reply to] Can't Post

Fistfight?
Pie eating?
Battle of Wits?
Laundry folding?

Legend has it that squire has *at least* one alter ego which, if unleashed, could do some serious damage...

Get your laundry ready!

All of 'em together! [In reply to] Can't Post

Curious and Squire must duel at pie-eating, with fisticuffs and barbed wit as permissible means to slow the other eater down. They then must launder, dry, iron, and fold the tablecloths and napkins that they soiled in the process, as well as their own clothing (spectators unused to the sight of nudity must avert their eyes) which will include battling each other for access to the washing-machine, clothesline, iron, ironing-board, and laundry-baskets.

Fair enough?

Consider my eyes firmly averted. [In reply to] Can't Post

I have an unlucky friend who found old college pictures of her dad when his fraternity pranked him into running across campus naked. I hope the experience never becomes shared between us. Moving on!

I have absolutely zero experience of Curious beyond what I've seen of him in the Reading Room; if squire is a champion pie-eater or fistfighter, I've no knowledge of it, and clearly some secrets were kept during my childhood. If you boil down "barbed wit" to mean "sarcastic and rhetorical quips" I believe squire has at least a modicum of talent in that area, although as mentioned I'm not too familiar with Curious--I make a tentative guess that the two might be equally matched if they really set their minds to it.

But combining Curious' statement above that he is horrible at laundry with my own knowledge base, I would say squire wins in that department. Hands-down.Someone else has to ref it, though, because I hold a firm bias.
