:smileyvery-happy:  ..so, dear daughter of mine, where are the "bridges"?  Or is it a gap we're tryig to fill? :-)

 

Smurfs and Elves have wonderous flings,

magical horses and all good things

Knowing how we love to jest

only you can do your best!

 

Capture fairies in the air

hold them close and hear them swear

mystic harps will sing their songs

only you can stop the throngs

 

Crossing bridges, from east to west

help to gather birds to nest

fantasy and frolicking frogs

only you can swim the bogs

 

ETC., ETC., ETC. :smileyhappy:

Your Home Is Your Castle

My Dear Sister,

 

I am most pleased that you are happy with the way the photographer captured the essence of your castles.  I was just looking at them again myself and I must admit yours are looking better than mine in the pictures.  I am waiting on the photgrapher to finish taking pictures of our Royal Palace, once that is done I will be posting that in Volume 7 of the golassary.  I'm exhausted from our trip to England though and will probably be turning in early tonight.  Of course knowing me that means I still won't go to bed for a few more hours.

 

Your Adoring Brother,

 

Ryan, King of Wordsmithonia

To All Nobles of Wordsmithonia,

 

 

I do hope that you all were happy with the portraits that were used for your glossary listings.  I know most of you submitted more than one portrait for consideration, but me and the Editor had to choose what we thought were the best ones.  I hope we chose correctly and that everyone is happy.  I also hope that those of you who journeyed across the pond with us are now resting and have happy memories to cherish for all time.

My lord king, your glossary is impeccable. However, the picture you have included of me is an old one, from before my elevation. Here is a more recent photograph, taken at my old family estate.

My dear son,

 

My picture does seem a bit dated, it doesn't really show me off.  My hair style and color have changed this past year, as have my dress style.  But, it is all right, that picture will be just fine for our B&N Wordsmithonia disply wall.

 

And, by the way, I'm still in England.  I missed my plane out last night, after having to stay later than anticipated, working in Her Majesty's garden.  I ate my salmon and cuccumber sandwiches as I worked, not in the bath as was promised.  And Her Magesty's shipment of flowers to be planted, all arrived later than expected, as you know. Then we had to secure your sister's hounds, once we found them.  They managed to trample the newly planted flower beds, and that took a dog's age to correct. 

 

Now, I'm in the bath, soaking, and scraping the mud off of me, and finally enjoying a cup of tea.  Your sister has left the UK, as far as I know, but I am not sure, since I did not see her to the airport.  The last time I saw her, she was trying to stuff Snorky and Dorky into their carriers.  Unfortunately, the carriers are the size of a Corgi, and you know how big Deb's hounds are!  Seeing Deb's feet pressed upon her dogs' butts, shoving them into the space of a thimble, where not a sight for these poor old eyes of mine.  I had to leave her to fend this predicament, by herself.

 

I will return on the next fllight out. 

 

Until then,

Your loving,

QMummy
