1930s question

Sunday, 12 February 2017

Here's the quiz question for the 1930s episode of Further Back in Time for Dinner: what do I say is the only thing our picnic needs? As usual the winner is entitled to call themselves King or Queen of the Shed for a week. By the way we must thank Queen Marnie for her peaceful, stable and prosperous reign!

The only thing our picnic needs is... a dog.

I see that I've been beaten to the punch. However, I can at least add that I loved the performance on the ukulele!

I agree with Nicholas... the ukulele concert was a charming and surprising string to Brandon's bow!
There's presumably room for a King and a Queen in the shed...

A dog is right! And, yes, I don't see why we should not have a King and a Queen of the Shed. Especially as Nicholas was so kind about my uke-playing. So congratulations to Nicholas on his accession to the throne as King and to Annie for her second reign as Queen. Rule wisely!

Well, King Nicholas, it looks as though flattery really does get us everywhere.

I thank Queen Annie and Brandon for your munificence, and join Queen Annie in assuring all shed-dwellers that our rule this week will be a benign and enlightened one: seeking truth; promoting peace and mutually beneficial cooperation between ourselves and neighbouring sheds; enabling stability and prosperity; and supporting freedom, justice, and fairness for all!
