  3. So I noticed it looked like there'd been bites taken out of a couple of those 'shrooms before the video was shot....

  5. I don't know if this is sooo funny because it truly IS funny....or because I know WT! tee-hee! I wish you had been filming him as he did it!

  6. Liza beat me to it. I was going to ask if he happened to be the voice of Mr. Bill in the 70's. Either that or he was an avid fan. :)

  9. Singing in Sean Connery voice from "Darby O'Gill And The Little People"... "Oh she is my dear my darling one, her eyes are sparkling full of fun..." Great post! I loved Mister Bill! "Happy Theme Thursday," y'all!

  10. Willow Asylum is right! I did notice that one 'shrooms had a couple of bites taken out of it. Hmm.

    He's this silly all the time, so I know it's not the moon.

  21. Synchronicity strikes again -- I just put up pictures of a fairy ring on my post scheduled for tomorrow!

    Maybe I can get WT to come interview our mushroom folk -- he obviously has a knack for it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Someone has a vivid imagination! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm just shaking my head. Is he really that silly all the time? You lucky thing!

    ReplyDelete
  24. What a cruel life... and I thought you were supposed to have fun on a golf course!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I never realised that Willow Manor was such a creepy place. Great twist to the theme.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I saw the king running out of the frame, so I reckon he is sill safe. -J

  27. Hello Willow,

    Whoever it was, he's not a very nice man! Poor King Brian!

    ReplyDelete

    (Now, children, we don't want to do this to our neighbors, do we?) ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Are Derrick and I the only ones concerned about King Brian? I mean, he wasn't a bad guy so why bash his village. Shame, shame.

    ReplyDelete
  33. liza beat me to it....was having mr. bill flashbacks!

    and the next vid we will hear your hero singing:

    They're coming to take me away, HA HA
    They're coming to take me away, HO HO HEE HEE HA HA
    To the funny farm
    Where life is beautiful all the time

    ReplyDelete
  34. OMG, how hilarious. I, too, thought of Mr. Bill.

    Y'all have such a great time there at the Manor. I salute you!

    ReplyDelete
  35. H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S

    That's a great story-board; love it.

    PS. Perhaps you should have added the rider that 'No little people were injured during the making of this film.'

  36. Philip, that's a great idea. King Brian and none of the little people were harmed in the making of this film! ;^)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Funny stuff .. I am thinking some of those were magic shrooms....

    ReplyDelete
  38. Mr. Bill indeed. Loved this post.
    Thanks for sharing your slightly skewed vision of the wildside.

    ReplyDelete
  39. "King Brian and the Little People's Revenge" -- I can see it now., taking out there pent up aggression against wild rabid golfers and stompers. LOL. Very funny Willow.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hee. Loved Bonnie's comment and your response. too funny.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Zombies, Vampires Insane clowns and my neighbor scare me but GOLFERS terrify me!This video terrifies us all!

  42. Are they eatable? (The miushrooms not the little people)

  43. This little poem came to mind:
    Under a toadstool crept a wee Elf,
    Out of the rain to shelter himself.

    Under the toadstool, sound asleep,
    Sat a big Dormouse all in a heap.

    Trembled the wee Elf, frightened and yet 5
    Fearing to fly away lest he get wet.

    To the next shelter—maybe a mile!
    Sudden the wee Elf smiled a wee smile.

    Tugged till the toadstool toppled in two.
    Holding it over him, gaily he flew. 10

    Soon he was safe home, dry as could be.
    Soon woke the Dormouse—"Good gracious me!

    "Where is my toadstool?" loud he lamented.
    —And that's how umbrellas first were invented.

  44. I am a bit leery of mushrooms because I don't know much about which can be eaten and which can't --- but some of them do look cute

    ReplyDelete
  45. ...Still laughing!!!

    BTW, I watched Rampling's Under the Sand as well. She's also great in Swimming Pool...

    ReplyDelete
  46. Weaver and Layers, we don't eat them. I don't know enough about them to take a chance. Too risky.

    ReplyDelete
  47. e, yes, Rampling is wonderful in Swimming Pool, as well!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. How cool! It's so hot that it seems we will not see mushrooms here so soon...

    ReplyDelete
  49. Jane, that such a charming little poem! Thank you! LOVE it!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I can't stop laughing. The golfers! The golfers!

    OMG I'm dying over here.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Haha . .you're a twit. I can never pick a mushroom just in case there's a fairy underneath it or a smoking catterpillar wanting to sit on it!Very cute.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm laughing so hard I'm crying. This is just the sort of thing I used to amuse my children with.

    I will forever have a new respect for golfers after seeing this video. And maybe a tiny amount of fear.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Ok That just cracked me up. Thanks!!!!!
