A barrier my mother faced during one of her many visits to Blenheim Palace… and the banter that ensued.
J – Should there be a sign to say “Warning! Invisible electric fences on the sides” Shocking…
D – Well there is not much point in having a gate if it is left open…
J – It is closed to keep the draught out (!)
A – Oh please?! Just need one of G’s comments now……
D – Must not forget those wandering sheep…
A – Sheep?! Did not see one single animal there, they had all got out somehow…
G – The fence is a work in progress. Please be patient 🙂
D – One assumed it would be far from the madding crowd…
D – Did you go through the gate?
J – I would have, just to make a point.
D – How do you know it wasn’t a portal to a parallel universe? These things are hidden in plain sight you know… (Mwahahahahaaaaah!)
A – We did go through a gate actually, the only one with a fence attached. All the others were portals to whatever it is you are saying so we did not dare… (There was quite a few around)
J – Did you close the gate after you?! 😛
