I may fly in via dragon..... :wacko:

Only downside of that is that dragon stabling in the Bristol/Gloucester area is difficult to find  now that the dragon hatcheries at Berkeley and Hinkley Point have closed.  Might I suggest that coming in by magic carpet would be easier.  It's cheaper to roll up and carry off a length of Axminster (or even silken Isfahan) than park a dragon..........but the chance of having available  a fire-breathing creature to whom we might feed JMNs has some  attractions.

You think he's joking, don't you ?  :rolleyes:

Not in the slightest.

We are, of course, only 8 miles from the Welsh border here, and Rheged may be even nearer!  :o

Me?, joke about dragons? Not at all.  I'm only 7 miles from Wales (there are warning signs by the roadside at the appropriate points)......but I still reckon that a nice silk Isfahan  flying carpet  would be easier.  I'm  assuming that he  won't befuddle us all by arriving by pachyderm in a diamante encrusted howdah.

Well, seeing as you've just broached the subject, who knows?  ;D ;)

I'll leave the dragon at home, then. Give it a rest. The magic carpet idea has merit, but is prone to interference from inclement weather, and so for longer visits is unreliable.
As for JMNs, either my wizard staff plus sacred oaths could shrivel them to nithings, or I could just use an axe. :thumbsup:
