The Major: Why did he kill it, anyway, Fawlty?
Basil: I don't know, Major. Better than marrying it.

(John Cleese & Connie Booth 1979)

First of November? What time were you there?

Vogon Poet said...

That's a quote! Nice dragon slashing...

Leif Hagen said...

Heavenly photo in a gorgeous church! Were the King and Queen married in that church?

Halcyon said...

I do like St. George. I bet he was a good friend to have back in the day!

I got sidetracked into this favourite British sitcom of mine when I was in fact about to tell you something about Storkyrkan. Anyhow, I'll get another chance before long.

Svenske Floyd: For a couple of hours I guess, this was snapped around 14.08.

Vogon Poet: Dragons beware!

Leif Hagen: Certainly a gorgeous church. Yes, they were in 1976.

Halcyon: That's an interesting topic. What kind of qualities in a person will make him (or her) stay in our memory throughout history?

Thanks all for witnessing this epic duel with us.

Then you must have heard some music. I was there with the choir of Par Bricole that afternoon!

Halcyon said...

I just think it would be cool to have a friend who slayed dragons. :D

500+ years old, this statue.

cieldequimper: Fawlty Towers has a quote for every conceivable situation in life.

Svenske Floyd: Certainly. My excursion was accompanied - and terminated, in fact - by heavenly music.

Tapirgal: Thanks!

arabesque: Yes, there's a legend. You can read more here.

Halcyon: Super-cool. That should get the conversation going at any cocktail party...

RyanAmPop: Not a word to the dragon!

Again, thanks all.
