Short video of Lord Whimsy - From an episode of PBS series Driving ...


Here is an excerpt from a much longer description on You Tube:

I received an email that suggested if I was interested in meeting the "gentlemen protector of the Pine Barrens," I should check out a man named Lord Whimsy, central Jersey's resident arbiter and author of all things dandy.

I was intrigued. And I said as much when I wrote back to the anonymous emailer. I asked what the emailer's connection was to Lord Breaulove Swells Whimsy. The response was as simple and as intriguing as the first letter. It read:

"I first met him while studying marine biology. He also appeared in my art classes. He wooed me, and I became his wife. Regards, Lady Pinkwater."

What ho! A splendid little bash it seems, and quite a few very nice cutlets I might add! Good show!

We had a splendid little bash. There are photographs somewhere-  ah- here we are:

What ho indeed, young fellow-me-lad.  Did the Cascadia Lair survive the Mayan Apocalypse then?  Still cleaning up the remnants of the zombie plague out here in the hinterlands.

What ho, ho what, what!

Quite.

Makes the old Purdey rather redundant wouldn't you say?

My faithful hound Bruiser just cornered a possum in our compound a short time ago; he's hell on things that play dead.  I'm sure I saw a badger peering in from outside the fence.
