    That or somebody in a helicopter tagged me with a dart while I tried to run away.

    LadyV, your presence alone is enough to brighten my day.

    Good morning. Thanks for gifts and goodwill. I see I need a cook, no breakfast. Seeing Prince Ted has been suggested by my left-hand woman, it seem likes a good idea.

    If breakfast is what you'd like, I can arrange that.



    Enjoy, my queen.

    *'Queen Coo is Queen again? Really? Kewl!' The oat bag is blathering along faster than his steps are taking us toward the castle. Word has just come down the pike that Cooee is Queen again, and that is cool. Super keeps jabbering as has been his wont ever since word came down the pike that Queen Coo has regained the throne. 'Hey, Boss, it's been a long while since we've seen Queen Coo, hasn't it. Sure it has. It sure will be good to see her again, huh. Yep, sure will.'*

    *I let the glue pot yammer as I think back along the years, back when Coo was Queen and I was a lowly knight. It was Queen Coo's decree that sent me questing back when the world was younger. I, of course, was only too happy to take on the mission, since Her Majesty's wish is my only desire to fulfill. On top of that Her Majestic Majesty bequeathed to me the faithful sword I still have at my side - Brand. I gotta admit, Queen Coo knows her swords.*

    *'Yes, it'll be good to see Queen Coo again. It's been awhile, and to see the tender tinder that lit the fire to A Knight's Journey Into Doom will be very nice, indeed.*

    *We ride to the castle gates and I slide down from Super's back as he yaks on. 'Think Queen Coo will gimmee a apple? Sure she will, cuz she likes me, doesn't she. Sure she does.'*

    *'I'm sure she does, now settle down and behave.'*

    *Super snorts and gives me a headbutt. I give him a smack back. 'I always b'have, and if they have a ball I'm thinkin' of askin' the Queen to dance.'*

    *I smile at the big dope. 'I'd like to see that.' I give Super a rub between the ears. 'Come on, doofus, let's go see the Queen.'*



    Hail, Queen Cooee! - and greetings noble Royals. I've heard news that a Queen from historical history is once again gracing the throne. I, and my faithful steed, have come to pay homage.

    Queen Coo, it is with pleasure I once again set eyes on your majestic Majesty.

    Princess P, I trust you'll be the better soon. It's not much fun feeling poorly so soon after you've acquired a new castle.

    Get well soonest.

    Yes, Prince Beanie?


    Prince Super! So good to see you! And Sir Brad. Lovely you came.
    *Hands Super a carrot and Sir Brad a plate of bacon.*

    (Why bacon? Because the Queen ordered a lot of bacon. )


    ETA:

    Prince Beanie, I know you wanted a word but where it is morning there, it is night here and my body has just informed me in no uncertain terms that I will lay down--now. Leave me a note and I'll answer you on the morrow. Sorry.


    Good night, Your Majesty. Good night, dear Royals.

    Dear me, how funny.

    There is some crystal ball type word linking thing happening about the past. How clever of you Sir Brad, my sweet knight. I have missed you and am overjoyed you have come for an audience. I can't believe so much time has gone by. Sigh. Sigh.

    Mmmmm, I've been thrown off guard by the sight of Sir Brad and forgot my Decrees.

    Mind reader you are, hu? I like it... but .... I will think on it. Dubloons? They fly do they?

    I hear you fear, me, Majestic Majesty. Silly Prince. Silly Prince. The castle is tagged or pipped or tapped or bugged. This is how I know this.

    Who is this count? A mad man's mind wandering? I wish to meet this count, and meet him soon please.

    AH, so you didn't read my mind, but changed yours? I now need to think much too much about this.
