A Knight’s tail?

Oh come on! It’s draughty in here. What’s going on?
Sorry my liege, we’re waiting for the Bishop.
Whatever for?  No-one’s due to be christened or married….. oh no. Nobody’s died have they?
No your Majesty. The servants are gathered and waiting for his blessing before they continue.
Blessing? On what? Is food involved? Has he got to bless the Royal Match to get a fire going in here? I’m cold! Look at me, I’m practically blue!
No my King. The logs will soon be crackling in the hearth to make you toasty and warm, but for now……………
WAIT! Who brought that horse in here? Surely it’s not going to………… it wouldn’t!!!
Knight!! Take your steed outside before it ……………………..
I am so sorry your Royalness. I will go and get a shovel…………
Oh please, don’t let The Queen see it. She’ll have a hissy fit and no presence of a Bishop will curtail her language!!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    We’re they going to bless the horse? I think that’s a great idea.

    Yes, the Queen won’t like it but the King probably won’t give a s**t.
