The Entirely Miss Reverend Lady Persephone the Harmonious of Dramble Buzzcock Takes a Sabbatical to Visit Her Castle
'Twas a sunny afternoon, during which Her Ladyship took her place in the royal PT Cruiser and set off to survey her estates.
Her retainers were directed to drive the royal party to Castle Craig, in the Hanging Hills of Southern Connecticutshire.
The place was just as she had left it....
A commanding view of Middlesex County to the South and West...
A very defensible parapet with nicely crenellated walls to keep nasty barbarian tribesmen, round-heads, or insurgent labradors at bay....
Fabled Mirror Loch, where Aengus Llwuffenmorachmckerrolain defeated the Corgis, could be seen in the distance!
The prosaic inscription in front of the edifice has of course been expressly written by Her Ladyship's Office of Public Relations to deter tourists and itinerant Cairn terriers...
But something was amiss! The Royal Meriden Constabulary had occupied the easterly approaches to Her Ladyship's castle! There were fire engines, emergency vehicles, and paramedics. What could be happening?
Miss Reverend Lady Persephone took full measure of the situation, looking left, right, up and down.
What was that in the sky? Could the Airedales be launching projectiles with their trebuchets again! Nay-- 'tis a rogue helicopter!
And it's going to land upon the Sacred grounds of Lady Persephone's estate!
The Airdales must have developed an Aire Force!
And they're landing right beside Her Ladyship's PT Cruiser! It's time to alert the Pikemen and Harquebusiers!
Okay...take a DEEP breath...the consequences of a vivid inner life can take a toll on one's grip on reality. It's just the local LifeStar helicopter, and all this commotion is just a drill. Seems that the Royal Meriden Constabulary must often rescue injured rock climbers, hikers, and sightseers who have inadvertently seen the cursed Black Dog. So they plan occasional exercises like this!
Guess it's time to return home, grab the Remote, and watch some Reality-TV!
Okay, that's enough reality! I wonder if the Airedales have wild imaginations...
