And just who is that handsome gay Jacobite blade and bonny fighter, parrying the dastardly thrust of that mean and underhand Government officer?

Gosh and lawks a lordy...'tis me! I am 'at home' for autographs (just a mere ten English pounds a scribble).

I'm having a tad of a problem geting out of the 'Foghorn Leghorn' accent (as adopted for the AWI business)...my colleagues at work this morning think that I'm a bit of a nutter. At least the 'camp Edinburgh' has been put back into the closet...until the next time. My new goal in life is to learn how...

Try 'Greatwigs' (stick it in your search engine as I can't remember the full website)...look for the 'Prince Charming' (yeah...OK...I know!) in mohair. Cost about £45.00...it does 'moult' a wee bit so liberal coatings of cheap Tesco hairspray finally does the trick. Great Wigs also does an excellent...

I used to dream of hairy flapjacks...until the major surgery sorted me out.
Artisan Tod...is my new scabbard nearing completion yet? I have to 'cut-a-dash' as a Wild Goose donch'a know!

Aye...bayonet too. And I shall be fully 'knifed-up" so to speak. I do have a very nice hand-axe but it is sharp - so I don't think I'll be using it in a skirmish! I have been practising my French too (e.g. "Bonjour mam'selle, tu et tres jolie ne c'est pas? Voulez-vous ...etc...etc..."...

I appear to have 'touched a nerve' with my slightly 'supermarket-flavoured' posting. (Saha! Little do the readers know but I am a secret agent for The Co-Op who is silently undermining the strangle-hold the big supermarkets have on our economy...look what I did to Kwik-Save! Budgens is next, you hav...

Aha! You are still in the 'Spar' era then?(Or be it the 'Happy Shopper'?) upon the Heils of White. Disclaimer...Spar and the Happy Shopper are at the pinnacle of 'small-scale'/local supermarkets and are viewed with great affection by the British public (especially the all-night Spar in Aberystwyth w...

Talking about 'sexy'...methinks I have discovered a source of straw hats which can be turned into 'colonies-wear' tricornes at the 'flick of a brim...or three'. Believe it or not 'George' at ASDA make a nice, wide-brimmed hat in a very fine/flexible straw material (or is it a 'straw-like' material? ...

Exactly....it's started already. Mmm...seriously tempetd by Bath (the city rather than the ablutions with Tod) ...do I get to kill th' English? Actually, it all depends if I can convince my long-suffering wife if I can come out to play. I can do a passable Scots accent (with just a tad of a 'gay Edi...

I vowed NEVER to take a bath again with Tod...I'm not going into any more detail, look at me, just thinking about it again has made me go all shaky and sweaty...all those years of psychotherapy wasted!!!

In Tony Pollard's article there I am in the big photo resplendent in all me Jacobite glory, just about to chop a Redcoat down before one skewers me wiv his bayonet ( Hanovarian bas***d!!!!). ...

Bradley Company in the USA do them (and a breech clout too..although they ask you to measure yourself for this...which is a bit of a relief really)
