Your Reverend Lady San the Nefarious to Take Flight for Warmer Climes


Not to gloat mind you, but I've acquired a title.

Her Most Serene Highness Lady Jafabrit the Kind of Greater Sodbury,
in her most serene,
most high,
kindly,
ever-so-abundant Sodburian manner,
has introduced me to:
Lady Fortune the Absurd of Greater Internetshire.

Lady Fortune proceeded
to inform me:
My Peculiar Aristocratic Title was just the teeniest mouse-click away.

Child's play. Easy as blasphemy.

Henceforth let it be known:

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
Entirely Miss Reverend Lady San the Nefarious of New Invention


Rather fitting, wouldn't you say?

In celebration of our long-in-coming, richly deserved status as noblepersons, Bennie and I--oh yes, how could I forget? Bennie, he got a title too! Henceforth my spouse will be known as:

His Noble Excellency Bennie the Bloody of Praze-an-Beeble.


OK, where was I? Oh yeah, Thursday morning, we're departing for 10 days in THE YUCATAN! We'll be unplugged. No gallery. No email. No blogging (which actually makes me kinda sad). No spreadsheets. No invoices (although we hope that Karen, who will be minding the gallery in our absence, will be writing plenty of those.) No howling winter winds. No dust devils parading their wicked selves up the road. No treacherous ice in the parking lot.

With any luck at all, a week from today we will be:

Sleeping in.


Dining out.



Drinking in the lush greenness of it all.
Is that a pitcher of margaritas I see before my eyes?



Frolicking in the languorous, azure--don't you just love that word?-- azure, sun-kissed waters of the Caribbean.



Perusing the erstwhile Mayan hang-outs.



In the meantime, wanna title of your own? Well, by all means, lords and ladies, earls and earlets, ocelots of Camelot--Lady Fortune has a lot! Lay claim!

Our Lady of Greater Internetshire is dispensing them by the merdeload, yours for the clicking:

Well... I see who took the prize money and is taking a trip with her husband instead of Chuck and me! LOL

Have a great time and enjoy yourselves with a well deserved rest!

I am going to see what title I have!

Jo

P.S. I will miss you!

San said...

Jo, I'm curious to see your title.

I will miss you too!

Lady Madame Spark the Elephantine of Old Yarkhillshire

"Elephantine"??!! I should think not! I'll be sticking with plain old "Spark", thank you very much! ;-)

Bon Voyage! I hope that you have a wonderful journey. If those photos are even close to what it will be like, it'll be supremely wonderful!

San said...

Hi Red.

Elephantine? That does provoke outrage!!! Something must be done. Call in the sword-brandishing knights. Your reputation is at stake, Milady.

Thanks for the bon voyage wishes.

CHEWY said...

I posted my title San. I may be soon to kick the bucket. (ha-ha)
Enjoy your trip. Love the colors in those photos.

San said...

Well, Our Lady Kick-the-Bucket, do you plan to haunt us during our travels?

jsd said...

Thy Reverend San, I do so hope you enjoy your royal retreat, the court will man the sphere while you enjoy restitude of courtly recuperation at the beach, in the sun, in the sand, and under the basking moon, sounds like pure bliss...Her Noble Excellency JS the Unctuous of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

San said...

JS the Unctuous, you instill me with peace.

I shall now go about my stately pursuit of Nothing, knowing the persons-in-waiting will diligently ply the business of the sphere with acumen and resourcefulness.

Ciao, baby.

Lee said...

Well! So you're a Reverend Lady now hunh? Congratulations on the title! I hope some lands and riches come with it. (g)

I too have gone out and gotten myself a title. Looks like JS was doing it at the same time. Maybe we are closer to twins than we know. :)

Great painting! I love the gold and azure. Wish I were there too! Have a great vacation San!

Joy!

San said...

Lee,

Lands and riches? Why didn't I think to ask for that when I picked up my title? Me, I always get there too late. No doubt by now they'll just hand over a few Confederate dollars and a smallish parcel in Antarctica.

Glad you like the painting colors!

Now to check out your title...

self taught artist said...

I will miss you and be sending you great thoughts for rest, fun, pleasure, sinful delights in everything imaginable.
Baroness Paula the Winsome of Giggleswick under Table

San said...

Baroness Paula,

Good vibes emanating from Giggleswick under Table--that's something I can definitely use.

Thanks for the sinful sentiments, you winsome thing you.

Kim said...

Reverend Lady Kim the Idle of Frogging over Womble, here, Your Reverend Lady San...

Idle...indeed, they do not know me well in Frogging over Womble!

Your trip sounds as though it will be fabulous and delightful. You deserve it after January, right? I am sure it will be a lovely, lovely time.

I adore your painting! The textures and colors are so wonderful!

Okay, so I will miss you, but will be wishing you the most delightful of trips! Be Safe and Have A Grand Time!

San said...

Kim, well we're both Reverends. How about that? At least they got that right. ;-)

Thank you for your much-appreciated painting adoration, Milady. And for the lovely wishes for delightful journeying. Your wish is, as they say, my command.

lime said...

i am entirely overcome with envy. look at that water! well do have a most lovely time.

most sincerely,
The Very Lady Lime the Intractable of Lesser Cheese Winston

San said...

Thank you, Very Lady Lime.

Lesser Cheese Winston--they did well for themselves at that.

Sandi McBride said...

Ohh I can't remember my title, it's Empress something...I'll have to go back a few posts and job my memory...lovely pictures of a lovely Isle...I hope you enjoy each and every minute! Think of us

Sandi

San said...

Sandi, you must be Empress of Howling Coyotes-in-Woods.

Thank you for the vacation wishes. I will certainly think of you...

QUASAR9 said...

Dear Miss Reverend Lady San the Nefarious of New Invention,
it is always a pleasure to look in to your place in space.

San said...

Thank you for your gracious visit, my oh-so-brilliant Count-of-Light-Years.

indicaspecies said...

Dear Reverend Lady San the Nefarious,

In your adorable 'Wish You Were Here' (which btw is one of my fav Pink Floyd tracks), I can see you lounging (or posing) on the beach on a creamy-white rug with the azure waters before you.

Have a wonderful time San and these heartfelt wishes come to you from,

Her Grace Lady Celine the Bovine of Dick'n St Charles ;)
haha..

murat11 said...

Y'all have a great time away.

As to the very fine "Wish You Were Here": Mondrian meets Funicello in Lollipop-ville. I think I see Point Reyes thrown in.

JafaBrit's Art said...

ha ha, your title it PERfect, hee! hee! Love the pics. Have a wonderful trip. Look forward to hearing all about it when you get back.

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Very good.

This is His Eminence the Very Lord Nick the Bovine of Divine Intervention writing.

Jeff B said...

As I look outside at the rain falling from the sky...still!...I ask, do you need someone to carry your bags for you on your trip? nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

Have a great time, like I need to tell you that. Sheesh!

Mima said...

Oh how wonderful, you should have a fantastic time, the thing I think that makes me most jealous is that you will get to see reefs and all the wonderful caribbean fish. Not sure if you dive or not, but a snorkel is a must if you don't, the Yucatan is supposed to be amazing!!!

Carol said...

What the heck???

Milady the Right Reverend Carol the Strange of Chortling Chesterton

STRANGE???

Ooooohhhh! How I long for finding how who is living beneath all of these layers of clothing that I've been wearing for so many months in this cold clime! While you are gone, enjoy the warmth of weather that allows you to wear only the lightest of clothing on that Reverend Lady body! (Notice that we share - and very deservedly, I should say - the title of Reverend)

Beautiful painting. I wish I were there, too!

Enjoy, enjoy (and bring back photos!)

Chortle, chortle...

Meanie the baby dragon said...

Hi San! Me gez dat sinz mee kant waow me Piwut owtfit mee nawt doin wiff u! boo hoo!

HMBT said...

Have fun!!!!

WBTT said...

Let's just go with "His Noble Excellency Bennie..." And skip the "...bloody prenzle breble..(or whatnot) part. I'm thinking of sand, salt air, kayaking, snorkeling, and getting you on a hobie cat. Maybe a day trip to Cozumel... And Chitchen Itza. Looking forward to the adventure with me Lady Tiny.

San said...

My Grace Lady,

I embrace with profound appreciation your most fanciful and compelling description of my humble painting, as I do your fond wishes for our imminent departure for temperate zones.

Thank you, Celine the Bovine(???)

Reverend San-on-Caffeine

San said...

Thanks, Paschal.

Annette & Piet with a sugar rush. Really, really mixed media.

If not Point Reyes, then maybe Bolinas.

San said...

JafaBrit, thank you for seeing the perfection of my moniker.

I hope to come back with lots of stories and pictures...

San said...

Your Eminence Nick,

Two words: HOLY COW!

San said...

Hi Jeff.

We woke up to still more snow, just a dusting on the junipers. It's really pretty, but I believe we're all getting tired of winter when February rolls around.

Thanks for the good wishes.

San said...

Mima,

We don't dive, but what you're saying about the snorkeling sounds simply awesome. Thank you for the tip.

Take care...

San said...

Reverend Strange,

Know what you mean about winter clothing. I get tired of walking around weighted down.

On a happier note, tis strange indeed that Lady Fortune had the perspicaciousness to discern our extreme inclination towards piety. Kim too!

Maybe we should start our own church or something. The Church of Latterday Chortlers.

San said...

Meanie, pweeze dont cwy!!! I will cwy too.

My spouse is insanely jealous. I simply cannot travel with a swashbuckingling pirate dragon. They don't call him The Bloody for nothing.

San said...

Heather, thank you! Now dive back into your art...

San said...

My Noble Excellency WBTT,

I'm getting excited--I can already feel that soft breeze and hear the soothing sound of the sea.

It was your idea, and I am so glad you had it!

I love you!!!

S said...

Oh my! Just to stay in a room with swan shaped in a heart towels! Ohh lalal!

Calamity Jane said...

My goodness that looks beautiful, maybe that should be where we go when I'm all fixed.

Ta,
Baroness Jane the Antediluvian of Witchampton Under Buzzard

San said...

Susie, aren't those towels sweeeeeeeet?

Thanks for the visit.

San said...

Baroness Jane, Witchampton under Buzzard sounds like quite the place to hail from.

I appreciate your visit and look forward to seeing what escapades you're up to.

Daphne said...

Have a wonderful holiday San!

San said...

Thanks, Daphne!

Celebration of Life said...

Good Morning! I got a chuckle from your comment to Chuck! It is snowing again here this morning, the wind is supposed to pick up this afternoon. I am glad I got snowed into Rock Springs last Friday because I wouldn't have been able to get back home! The airport is closed here today also! I am sure glad I am not a trucker!

San said...

Good morning, Jo.

It snowed here yesterday and it's snowing again today. No rest for the winter-weary in these parts too. We usually get our last snow in April. Sigh.

I'm home with a fire in the woodstove. It's cozy, but I need to get out and run some errands before our trip. I hope the roads aren't too slippery. I don't think they're that bad actually, but I believe, like Miss Scarlet, I'll think about that tomorrow.

whimsicalnbrainpan said...

Have a great time!

Celebration of Life said...

April? You get spring in April? We don't get spring until May and sometimes real big snowstorms in June! I have seen it snow every month of the year, several times! Take lots of pictures on your trip!
Jo

kate said...

That was a hilarious post! Great new title you have.

I hope you have a wonderful and restful holiday.

Your blog fans will be awaiting news of your royal return.

San said...

Whimsical, thanks! I'll miss you.

San said...

Jo, that's a prolonged winter you have up there!

I wouldn't say we get actual spring "for good" in April, but that's generally when we get the last snow.

We plan to take pictures and I will wear my "pwesunt" for good luck.

;-)

San said...

Hey Kate,

"A restful holiday"--I can definitely use that and will try my darndest to make it happen.

I'm glad you liked the post. I will miss you.

david mcmahon said...

Your Supreme Highness,

Travel safe in the cosy embrace of first class.

And tell us (the humble peasants) everything when you come back!!

Psssssst - we'll miss you!

Celebration of Life said...

Good morning San! (I think I always start out that way! LOL) It finally stopped snowing here but there are dark clouds looming on the horizon. Winter in Wyoming is gloomy but I don't want to live anywhere else for now. ;o)
Jo

San said...

Sir David,

Thank you for your well-wishing. I shall return, armed with stories and pictures.

I will miss everyone!

San said...

Good afternoon, Jo. We woke up to a bit more snow, and now the sun is teasing us by coming out for a few seconds now and again.

We live in a passive solar home and that sunshine makes a big difference in the comfort factor indoors.

The Moody Minstrel said...

Sir Moody the Winsome of St. Winifred by Winchelsea at your service, m'lady!

Of course, if you're going off to a place like that, you probably don't have much need of my services.

Patty said...

Her Grace Lady Patty the Erudite of Withering Glance....huh?
Hope you and Bennie have a wonderful vacation. I am envious.
Beautiful painting, San.

Meanie the baby dragon said...

bi bi San! Tee u doon!

Merelyme said...

may i just say that i am so terribly envious. *sigh*

B.T.Bear (esq.) said...

HEHEHE! I'm a DUKE! HEHEHE!

Hope yor havin a good holiday. See yu soon (miss yu!)

:@}

Anna said...

Have great time San, btw beautiful photo set, love the swans on the bed in the hotel room, and thanks for sharing, Anna :)

Aurora said...

Oh my that looks beautiful--very lush and warm!

The Wisdom of Wislon said...

Lovely images, thanks for dropping by

Patty said...

San,have you returned from your travels yet? Hope you had a wonderful trip and have lots of stories to tell us. You have been missed.

San said...

Moody, truth be told, we could have used your services. The Techno music they chose to blast in the vicinity of the chaise lounges left something to be desired.

San said...

Thanks for complimenting my painting, Patty, and for checking in during my absence.

San said...

Anna, the towels looked just like that when we arrived. And then on the subsequent days, they were in other fanciful shapes.

San said...

Meanie, good to dee u.

San said...

Merelyme, thanks for popping by. You sigh in a lovely manner, btw.

San said...

Bob, a duke! That fits. It does indeed.

San said...

Aurora, it was every bit as lush and warm as the pictures.

Thank you for visiting.

San said...

Always good to see you, Wisdom of W.
