Yak Herder Central

Yak Herder and his trusty(?) altered ego, The Swami, are content to provide little content of their own, but delight in providing "helpful" commentary to the blogs of others ....ALL THE NEWS THAT'S FAIRLY UNBALANCED

By Jove, Clive. It Was A Jolly Good Time.



The Swami has returned! Swami was afraid that if he did not post soon, some of his alert readers might notice that he had not posted in almost four weeks. Also, it seems, from her last comment on my March 16 post, Susan needs some warped humor. Far be it from The Swami to leave his DIL in a pickle.

If only Swami can get his Warp up to speed.

Swami and The Lovely Swamette just returned from a 40th Anniversary trip to England. Swami did not want to mention this in advance since it appears from their posting patterns that many of his readers may be out on work-release programs. And, as we all know, the recidivism rate among bloggers is several times that of the general population.



















As you can see above, Swami dressed in mufti since the turban does cause a few problems. In fact, Swami usually has to get to the airport at least nine hours early to allow for the extra security. There seems to be a concern that Swami's turban might be concealing a shoe-bomb or a tactical nuclear weapon.

The first two photos are of Arundel Castle, home of The Duke of York. Our common ancestor, The Third Earl of Arundel, was Swami's great-grandfather (with 21 greats). Swami feels that he should be the rightful heir to the castle [Forget about the other one million plus descendants].



















There were many beautiful things to see, but as you can tell from the photo below, from York, building maintenance is occasionally lacking.











Swami was pleasantly surprised to find that some of the people there speak a language somewhat similar to ours. Also, the difficulty in driving there is way overblown. Swami found that he was able to drive on the same side of the road as in the U.S. All you have to do is drive in reverse!

Swami will try to blog a bit more about England as he has time. And when it doesn't take five minutes per photo for Flogger to upload them.

Flickr is the answer to anyone's dreams of uploading pics effortlessly. Next time I am over, I can teach you, oh-Wise-Swami.
Thanks for posting some pictures. I'm related to you, for God's sake and this is the first I am seeing!
And since I am in the family, that means I have claims to Arundel, too, right?

Right. And that is one of the many reasons why your lovely daughters are princesses.

And the other reason is because you spoil them rotten.
