Once upon a time in the Elven Forest there lived an Wise Old Bald Man (that’s me) with his beautiful fiance (that’s Catwoman). Some very good friends of theirs came into the forest having left a trail of breadcrumbs to ensure that they didn’t get lost in this dark and gloomy place. Those very good friends were known as King John and Queen Caron, they were from the country of Godderwil. Catwoman said “Why did they use breadcrumbs? Surely the birds of the forest will eat them and the King and Queen will be lost?” “I have already thought of this” said King John, who was very clever, “I have covered them all in Magic Glue so that they will stick to the floor”. He then looked at his hands and realised that they were covered in breadcrumbs. “Forsooth” he cried, which is completely meaningless, but it is what royalty does in any story that opens with the line ‘once upon a time’ Catwoman and the Wise Old Bald Man (that’s me) soon put King John and Queen Caron on the correct trail by consulting the magic oracle of Tom Tom Garmin.
But we digress, there was a very good reason for this Royal visit. It was to introduce the new member of the Royal Family; Princess Amelia who had been born on 5th May 2010 (which sadly prevents the use of any Star Wars jokes about May the Fourth be with you). Catwoman and the Wise Old Bald Man (that’s me) were very excited to meet this lovely young lady and were even more honoured to be asked to be her moral and spiritual guides. There was no religion in this part of the forest (Imagine, no religion. It’s easy if you try!) so they were not God Parents, but they were Odd Parents. Some would say very odd indeed. Catwoman and the Wise Old Bald Man made many commitments and promises to the young Princess Amelia.
One of the promises the Wise Old Bald Man (that’s me) made was to teach Princess Amelia all he knew about music (and superheroes, but that story will be saved for another time). To do this he decided to dedicate a series of scrolls to the Princess, outside the Forest these were known as Blogs. Which is strange really as the forest scrolls are made from logs which sounds like blogs doesn’t it? Anyway he published the first of those scrolls on the advent of the first birthday of the young Princess and vowed to publish a new one each month, provided the Trolls (If these creatures scare you simply shout “TROLL” at the top of your voice and they will disappear!) he worked for released him for a few hours. You can read these soon to be famous scrolls by clicking here.
Odd bless Princess Amelia who lived happily ever after in Godderwil with King John, Queen Caron and her two stepbrothers and one stepsister; Prince Joseph, Prince Matthew and Princess Rebecca. Strangely enough none of them were known to be wicked or evil as step brothers and sisters often are in these stories.
THE END (or is it?)
See not even this post is finished yet. It is Amelia’s birthday today so let’s give her a birthday song to celebrate. here are the Beatles with “Birthday” from the classic White Album.
