What a useful and versatile Scullery Maid you seem to have, Sir Bart! You really must tell us how you found her - good help is lamentably hard to come by these days. Although I have recently acquired a wonderful new hedge-trimmer by the name of Ramone. Such a pleasure to have around the place, and one does so enjoy meeting exotic new people - they have such novel ways of doing things!

Ramone...one has to ponder Lady La...and I dare say tis the influence of such foul and debauched literature as "Pride and Prejudice" and "Fifty Shades of Agnes Grey"...is he Ramone by name and Ramone by nature?

Ah quite so Lord Spot,

I hear Mr Ramone and his brothers were minstrels of great fame, at that commoner public establishment, 'The Drunken Mermaid'.

My kitchen servants were right "into them", and were punished for growing their hair too long, after several turned up in my soup.

My word Sir Dave...there is some confusion tween Viscount Hunter's dark Satanic Avatar and Lord Spot's dark satanic Avatar is there not?

One seems to have injured oneself trying to get a better view of the Beach Volley Ball...one is just orf to see the Dark Satanic Nurse.

Commiserations, Sir Bart. I am distressed to learn that you damaged your coccyx while watching the beach volleyball. A recurring injury of yours, I understand.

Earl Dave's confusion between Viscount Hunter and myself is quite understandable, as we look rather similar when lurking behind a hedge.

Marvellous. Whilst I was visiting the Nurse I happened to mention my latest book on the Middle East which seems to have got me in a spot of bother with the Extremists...the nurse asked if I had caused a Jihad...I said "Fatwa" and she hit me with a warming pan!

Yes indeed good Sir.

I do believe Lord Spot's avatar looks similar to something I spied through my telescope, when Lady Baines-Borthwick and her young manservant went for a "stroll" in the forest last week.

My word Sir Dave... Did they perchance get themselves into difficulties in Frenchman's Copse?

Sadly yes, Sir Bart. I fell foul of the Frenchmen's cops last time I was in Calais. I was innocently waiting behind a hedge for my carriage to arrive, when these beastly uniformed thugs carried me off. I think they said something about a convent, but I'm not sure as I pay little heed to anyone who can't be bothered to learn English.

How unfortunate Lord Spot, there's nothin worse than a brush with the peelers, wot, wot. I once had to stand as a reference of good character for the Skullery Maid when she was accused of pulling off a policeman's helmet.

My word, you bring back some memories, Sir Bart. I remember as a lad, the local bobby would often chase us because we were throwing snowballs at his helmet.

Indeed one rather fears the local constabulary have marked one down as a wrong-un and no mistake. One is always getting very drunk and blowing raspberries at the Chief Inspector's Balls.

Indeed, the constabulary can be a nuisance at times. Our local peeler always seems to have his truncheon out; the laundry maid said that she finds it unsettling when he stops and points it at her.

What a thing for an upstanding member of a law-enforcement agency to be doing - I confess myself frankly appalled! Honestly, if the working classes are not going to set a decent example for the rest of us chaps, then what bally use are they, one wonders? It makes me feel quite downhearted, although my spirits are somewhat buoyed by an invitation to tea and crumpets this afternoon with a gentleman of whom I am very fond - such a strapping, handsome young man, and recently come into his inheritance! I shall be sure to ask him what can be done about the lax moral standards of certain residents of the area though. If nothing else, I am convinced we should be patrolling the hedges more often...

Absolutely Lady La La ( why is that name so familiar?)...I shall instruct the game keeper to be on the lookout for lurkers in the larches, flashers in the fir trees and ....well, I dread to think what might be going on in the beeches.
