A fine cup of/from Earl Grey.
Wow that is a wonderful way to start the day, Earl Grey... I thought he was Lord Dovetone, now you confuse me, is Chad an Earl or a Lord....
Bill Phillips: As the old song goes He's the Duke of Earl

LOl at Astrid! Earl Grey! Rebel and republican Chad! Here he looks to be the born butler, always in a bit servile behaviour! Even the dogs are looked after, only the big litterbox reminds of his special view on the rubbish things of our life!
Bill Phillips: There's nothing servile about our Chadgrin

Nice composition, like it in BW. Such a serious guy wink
Bill Phillips: He's only pretending to be serious.
It's heavy, by the looks of it
Bill Phillips: They were big cups Marion

He would make a wonderful servant
Bill Phillips: Something that would never be said of you I imagine.

He is already bowing to you, I see, Bill, as he comes. Unbelievable fealty!
Bill Phillips: As you would expect Ginnie

The career change wass a spark of genius. ''Jeeves more hot water please.''
Bill Phillips: He would make a good Jeeves. But I can't quite see Chris as Bertie!

Earl Grey and Lord Clift.. what distinguished company you keep. Good to see your butler bowing in reverence to his Master.
Bill Phillips: As is only right and proper Alan
Lord Tiffos butler springs to mind.
Bill Phillips: I can imagine that it does Mick
This man seems very good at his job Bill but I'll wager he doesn't get a medal for long service as I did
Bill Phillips: A wager you would be certain to win Stanley
I love this shot Bill....but i think that you are off the horizontal a bit...the tea tray looks the low on the leftgrin....petersmile

Hi Chadsmile
Bill Phillips: My horizontals are fine Peter, but as usual Chad's are not gringrin

Like this in B&W. I'll have lady grey thank you
Bill Phillips: I like Lady Grey too/ I'll join you
Does Chad have a back injury? Perhaps English tea is heavier than it is here.
Bill Phillips: No he is just a silly sod

I expect that Chad will be serving us such a delicious Cream Tea as yourself served us at Buckfast Abbey in South Devon! I own a funny DVD where Lord Chad is attended by Butler James Chris!
Bill Phillips: Chris and he had Chelsea buns but Richard and I declined....mind you Richard did cut a bit off theirs!

Oh, Bill, you are watering my mouth, really! And your tea- time is appropriate to the Royal Wedding Day (but as I read the Windsor Royalty prefers to hide the German- Hanoverian ancestors)! I hope to enjoy such a Chelsea Bun when I will visit the Chelsea Flower Show on 28th May this year!
"The Chelsea bun is a type of currant bun that was first created in the 18th century at the Bun House in Chelsea, an establishment favoured by Hanoverian royalty and demolished in 1839. The bun is made of a rich yeast dough flavoured with lemon peel, cinnamon or a sweet spice mixture." Mmmmmmhhhhhh!

"Richard did cut a bit off theirs" -no wonder if you are eating only fish & chips and other fast food street stuff since some weeks...(I can't smell it longer. I hope he doesn't read this reply! Sorry, sorry!)
(In our newspapers the little, 3 years old Grace van Cutsem and Pippa Middleton are more appreciated than Kate and William, the stars of the day, themselves!)
Bill Phillips: Apparently Pippa is supposed to be very attractive. I haven't actually seen her so i have no idea. The Chelsea buns looked very nice. The Chelsea flower show gets very crowded! I hope you enjoy it
Like Dr. Who, in another time, well, except maybe for the bin! lol Does he also Butler?
Bill Phillips: Looks like Chad is a cross between Dr Who, a vampire and Jeeves......I suppose that would be about right gringringrin
Reminiscent of a servant character you might encounter in a Mary Shelley novel.
Bill Phillips: I didn't notice any fangs Bev!

For Philine: Yes I have read the comment and I can cope with all the savage comments [grin]

and Bill: I agree that the younger Middleton sister is very attractive.
Bill Phillips: Is she well I will take your word for it as I have never actually seen her

intriguing shot!
Bill Phillips: You see a man bent low with a great responsibility. The safe delivery of teagrin
It looks as though you have been working this poor old fellow to death, I guess he'll never be able to walk tall ever again.
Bill Phillips: He's just going for the sympathy vote Brian

I was just about to do my somersault without spilling the tea.
Bill Phillips: Sadly I failed to get a picture of that
Chad would make a very good butler. Well captured Bill
Bill Phillips: He probably would Janet.
I see that he is bowed down by the heavy responsibility!
Bill Phillips: He's just trying to get sympathy, take no notice Tom
This looks a really tricky job for Chad, its a good job he never had his camera round his neck as well, or he would be crawling smile
Bill Phillips: Chad with a camera??? Don't be silly Linda
For those who serve, was he once a butler? smile
Bill Phillips: Oh Lord I hope not!!
