It's GREAT June, you know what you are talking about indeed!! Respect!!

Plumpossum

Hear hear!!!

lelabugosi

Publish and be damned!................(just sayin').............

juneshone

Hanne will tell you I did write a book about it all, not published and never will be but I got it out of my system

octomom

Who needs a history book when we have our very own Junee?

Elfie

He is SO romantic, Juneee, that's why!!

juneshone

yes I remember that. She must have understood that people in the northwest of England were called the Northern Welsh in the old days. Plus there was a real life Merlin who lived near where I do, he was a Druid and Taliesin wrote about him as having met him in the wild Caledonian forest of what is now Scotland. He is called Merlin Wylt, but unless he was a couple of hundred years old in Taliesin's time it was a different one. So many places to claim Arthur but none are properly attested as they are in the case of Urien. Maybe the enduring popularity of Arthur is the total mystery of the figure.

gemstone

juneeeee...When Mary Stewart wrote her Crystal Cave, etc., she had Arthur being raised in your area with a kindly king and his son, Sir Cai...from when the two boys were babes until the sword-in-the-stone incident...must have been some hint of that in her research.

wicca

Thank you Elfie

Elfie

Thanks ggl, now it worked for me too!! Beautiful egg really!!

grannygoatlady

Elfie

Thanks Junee, I remember it now!! It's fabulous history!!

Elfie

There's something wrong with you link jignut, I get my own profile when I use it!!

juneshone

I would still like to congratulate Wicca on her exertions, well done girl!

juneshone

Urien and Arthur were about 150 years adrift to betray each other, but in the Morte D'Arthur of Thomas Malory I think it was Owain Urien's son who did something a bit naughty. But then in his version they all had castles and armour etc, in the 5th-6th century! Urien was a real person and ruled the lands all around Cumbria. Here at Penrith we have the Rheged centre which is what his kingdom was called. They can keep their Arthur just give me the real heroes Urien and Owain, and Taliesin their bard who kept the tales alive.

grannygoatlady

All my ancestors were horse thieves and Indians...... well, there were a couple of Texas legislators...like I said horse thieves..............

Plumpossum

Frank Lloyd Wright (Welsh descent) had a home in Wisconsin called "Taliesin" and a home in Arizona called "Taliesin West." Both were extraordinarily interesting.

gemstone

Didn't King Urien betray Arthur...and didn't Taliesin "downplay" (to choose a kinder word than "hate") Arthur?...just wondering if memory is correct or has wandered off...

jignut

News Flash! Wicca laid an egg! No congratulations are in order though. It wasn't fertile(unless Wicca isn't telling me something)

http://www.jigidi.com/created_puzzles.php

juneshone

oh no my grandaddy etc etc was Taliesin High Bard of King Urien of Rheged giver of horses and all that stuff

lelabugosi

In that case, Juneee.......King Arthur could well have been your great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather!..........or not, as the case may be........(I may have missed out a 'great').....

juneshone

many people have thought about Cumbria and Somerset and France. My money, if ever there was such a guy, is that he would have been some 6th century war leader living near Stirling in what is Scotland now. all of the people of the West coast of Britain were called Welsh, where Cumbria is now was the land of the Northern Welsh.

Elfie

Ohhhh, I see it now - that's where my pipe is!!! - just keep it, I have some more!! Do you mean the one with the round table, Junee? - well, why shouldn't he be Welsh?? - or Cumbrian? Has anybody ever thought of that?

juneshone

let's not forget while we are learning dog history king Arthur was Welsh

lelabugosi

Soooo........This 'charismatic' gnome looks like Mr.numerous-numerals' father.......he is smoking Hanne-without-pipe's pipe.......Shakespeare was Danish.........and Mr.Le-Squirt is still advertising his wares, contrary to jigidi rules........We are learning a lot today........

Elfie

Hamlet IS a Danish prince way back in the grey history, Pat, so actually that's the reason. But from the Viking Age, where big parts of England were occupied by Danes, English has got many Danish words which have of course been changed into "English" as times have gone by!!

pdevredis

Now I know why Shakespeare set Hamlet in Denmark--Danish was actually his native tongue........

Elfie

Funny Junee, what you write is almost Danish!! Wherefore art thou.. - hvorfor er du..!! Isn't it easy??!!

juneshone

Gnomio, Gnomio, wherefore art thou Gnomio?

patsquire

This is not a genome, Davyzip. A genome is your father. Maybe he looks like this, but please don't be confused by the resemblance. You seem tall, by the way, but then I eventually became much taller than my father, too. It's a pity lelabug can't say the same thing!

Jc, keep one thing in mind about birthdays, the older you get, er, uh......I forget the rest.

Oh give me a home,
where the gnomeos roam,
and the modest-size people can play.

I think this Genome stole the pipe that used to be in Elfie's pixture. Just my opinion.
Hippo Birdie, Two Ewes, JC.

lelabugosi

Of course, Hanne-with-pipe-somewhere........I am glad that most of you......well.......some of you, appreciate the beauty of this......erm.......'creation'.........

Elfie

I can only say, that if the gnome is treated kindly he will help you with a lot of things that will make your life much easier!!......(won't you Lela?)

octomom

No plastic pink flamingo? Tsk.
Happy birthday, Jim. I'd say many more, but I don't know how many of these you could stand.....

ThomasCat

Anyone who broadcasts their birthdate to the world at large deserves a gift such as this....a beautiful monstrosity indeed....however JC's 8 neighbours are not amused....the baying of the various and sundry dogs is driving them mad....the neighbourhood beautification committee will be arriving shortly.

grannygoatlady

Gee..JC.......I don't quite know what to say.......except, I think I would have kept my birthday a secret.....I mean, receiving a present such as this can only make you the envy of the neighborhood (she said with tongue in cheek).......BUT!!! since you spilled the beans and received the white elephant.....just let me wish you a very Happy Birthday....

JiggyBelle

LOL, Lela! Great one!

teamac

Happy Birthday JCarroll !!
I think this gnome is exquisite.
It could be a bubble pipe ;^)

lelabugosi

Juneee, the smoke keeps the flies off..............so there!.....
precious-pebble..........Fear not!....The heat from the pipe will keep the snow off..............

Elfie

And so - what's wrong with the gnome?? To all of us who know gnomes he is marvellous and a very nice fellow well liked by all other gnomes, and of course he will be able to go home if he doesn't feel well treated!! So are gnomes, and they DO smoke tobacco!! Do hope you still have a happy birthday Jcarroll!!

gemstone

It looks like it's still snowing on your side of Bonga Bonga Mr. Xmas...hope it doesn't interfere with all the partying...perhaps your garden gnome will disappear under a blanket of white...one can only hope! Happy Birthday!

juneshone

would we want to be advertising the joy of tobacco to young passers by, or even old passers by

lelabugosi

Ah yes, by the roadside.......to delight and inspire one and all on their dreary drives!......

juneshone

sadly I believe you are right. I hear Lela has been sending that to people for years and it always finds its own way home, you can but live in hope that it has a gnome to go to!

cakes1947

Love it Lela, thanks!!!
Happy Birthday Jim!!! Yes, placed right at the beginning of the walk to greet one & all!!
(time, 1:20)

texasstar7

Now this sort of thing deserves, no--requires-- a place of high honor in your front lawn! What a prize, and you'll certainly want to secure it so it doesn't disappear in the middle of the night! Have a happy birthday, and know that there will be no further presents that can come close to this one. It should have been saved 'til last!

juneshone

Oh how generous you are Lela, I feel sure it will have pride of place on his front lawn making his neighbours so envious that there will be a rash of gnomes. there's a niche market there for some entrepreneurial spirit.

Hope you have a great day Jim, despite the horrendous gnome but don't tell Lela I said that

lelabugosi

Glad you like it!......I find that many garden gnomes are sort of......ugly.........whereas this one is fit to grace the finest of residences.........

Toto

Too Funny!
