She'd been gone for 2 hours, he started to wonder if sending her
back to the village for his ale had been such a good idea after all.

Larry said...

Genger ale

Melanie Sherman said...

Isn't that JUST like a "gentleman," sending the poor lass back for ale when there are several bottles of perfectly good wine available? Tsk tsk. :)

gaelikaa said...

It probably wasn't!

erik said...

Hmm, I suspect she won't be back.

Rekha said...

She must stopped by at the passing carnival....good one.

indicaspecies said...

Why doesn't he go fetch the ale himself? Perhaps she does not want to come back for he does not know how to treat her well...

Well done!

anthonynorth said...

Definitely not a good idea - he should have brought enough to begin with :-)
Enjoyed that. Nicely done.

Akelamalu said...

LOL no wonder she looks p****d off! I think he's just made his first big mistake.

Loved your take on the pic.

Jane Doe said...

He's learning the hard way how to please - or not - his lady!

Dianne said...

something tells me she stayed at the pub with her true love :)

Ashling said...

Thinking 'his' ale was long gone, selfish wench!

Diane said...

Probably..... NOT!!! :O)

Karen said...

Looks like he earned his fifth wheel status! :>

No, not the best idea on his part!! I suspect he'll be waiting a while for his ale!! Great one for the day!!

Hopefully not. I'm sure the poor lass could do better. LOL

I thought chivalry existed back then, but I know better now, thanks to you. I love it ;-)

sylviamorice said...

He should have just swallowed his 'manly pride' and drank the wine that looked to be fairly plentiful! That should teach him a lesson!

Susan Fobes said...

Maybe she decided to take a sample on the way home... Good one!

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Not very chivalrous of him! It would serve him right if she found another beau! :)

Rashmi said...

Hope she's having a good time done the pub. She deserves it after such a long walk.

Great ine, Deborah. Enjoy the week.

Cad said...

Serves him right for not going himself! LOL

Jim said...

Deborah, I'm thinking she drank it all on the way back to the picnic and doesn't want to face the music.

Selma said...

You have such a good sense of humour. Moral of the story - get your own ale, mate. LOL.

trisha said...

this was brilliant. i too wonder what happened to her, may be she got bored of obeying his orders :)

after all he was the one supposed to be obeying orders.
