Effigies of Sir John Talbot and his two wives (Margaret Troutbeck and Elizabeth Wrottesley). An eternity with a woman at each ear.......the dog at his feet is normally held to denote fidelity

Well, Bill...call me silly if you like, but I think his long sleep would be more comfortable if he had a couple of those pillows you showed us yesterday...he could stuff one in each ear, and just vaguely nod his head occasionally...
Bill Phillips: You make a good point Ray
I like your p.o.v. Bill
Bill Phillips: Thanks Frank
Great and impressive POV Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much richard
Great point of view Bill... there would be very little peace spending eternity with one wife chatting in each ear....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Perhaps he was deaf Peter

An eternity with two of them and the dog. Could be good, could be bad - nice shot!
Bill Phillips: I have been told it is a Lion by Chad and have to confess that he is right ...dammit
Fabulous POV, indeed, Sir Bill. I have nothing to say about the two wives or the dog, other than I hear someone say "if these walls could talk." smile
Bill Phillips: They could tell the story of Bromsgrove

Oh, a wonderful find - I never saw such a beautiful tomb monument! Your photo is excellent! He lived on big feet (a German phrase to describe a rich man).
Bill Phillips: Oh I would say so Philine

11 children!
Bill Phillips: Yes indeed he did.
I love this photo with the most interesting POV. One would be so lucky to be surrounded by wives for eternity.
Bill Phillips: Depends on the wives I imagine.
Were you allowed two wivies then Bill? I thought that having your feet on a lion meant that you died in peace not battle. This is weird becaue, at first glance it was as if you were looking up at vertical statues.
Bill Phillips: Oh it is a Lion isn't it? Not the famous African Lion hound at all. You could have a second wife providing the first one was dead I believe.
Absolutely terrific viewpoint Bill, you got some good shots in this church.
Bill Phillips: Tht is very kind of you to say so Brian

Can't be anything worst; poor chap. Pointless saying "Rest in Peace".
Bill Phillips: Hahahaha you are an old cynic Alan

The big daddy of the guy who came up with Talbot cars? From this point of view, they look like rockets to be fired at the congregation.
Bill Phillips: Talbot cars....I had a Talbot Solara...dreadful car.

That would liven up the congregation a bit
