Wood You Believe It?

Wrong George.

I was just looking at your last email [see Backs To The Wall] to herself, and call me Mr Picky if you like but I think a small historical inaccuracy may have crept in.  I'll wager you several pints of Doom Bar and a slap-up meat tea that it was in fact George ll who led the army into battle at Dettingen.  George lll was the barking one who spent a lot of time talking to trees, a trait which seems to continue among members of the royal family to this day.
I've just spotted a pun in there.  Trees....barking.  Brilliant.

By George, I think you've got it!
I knew it had to be one of the Georges (or a Henry or an Edward). Hell, statistically that gives you 22 shots at a winning answer.
You've no idea how lucky you are to be able to have time to think about things. Maybe I should take a sabbatical from the weekly grind of SSI and see if my brain starts working again.
PS. How's it going with the orbital sander?

And don't forget the odd Richard or three as well.
And a brace of Charles.  And several Williams and a few Jameses.  And...but enough.
I'll get an update on the sander, but I suspect it's going round and round in an uppy downy sort of way.

I was speaking figuratively.
Anyway, it's all a load of monarchs to me.
PS. Remember to sand with the grain if you want a decent finish.

How many monarchs comprise a load, precisely?  I think we've probably got one too many as it is.
I wouldn't dream of going against the grain.  There's the splinters for one thing.

Just remember to give her a good coating of Cuprinol if you're thinking of taking her outside the house!

I'll probably just rub in a couple of coats of Danish oil.

Danish oil?
Perhaps you should rub it into some Norwegian Wood ..... isn't it good!

Thank you.
But there's Norway I'm doing it again.

Giving up so easily?
In that case you won't mind if Icelander your name all over the place.
