a very strange day indeed
POSTED 7.30.13 Blog

It seemed like any other day here at Fleur de Lis.  We woke to a cool breeze with the promise of sun and warmer temps to come. But then a strange wind blew through- the Farmhouse staff arrived at Password on bicycles and the flags put up at Colors were the Union Jack and St. George’s Cross. Lady Bridget took up the trumpet to revive her illustrious 5 year bugler career and played her 7th grade jazz  band solo . . .

Something bizarre was afoot; that much was certain but the exact nature was not yet clear. Finally, Lady Pam provided some clarity to this morning of unusual happenings- It was Pandemonium Day, a day for silliness and bizarre whims. Well, almost everyday here is one of silliness and some bizarre whims but this one was special nonetheless.

Mail call was a scavenger hunt down the road and Lady Pam showed off her astounding skills on the recorder and guitar, eschewing the trumpet for Password and evening Colors. Chocolate pudding was served first at dinner after announcements as the meal ran back to front. Dinner itself was a smorgasbord of activity from FDL fire drills to spontaneous picnics on the porch and one brave table that chose to eat the entire meal standing on benches. Yes, it was a very strange day indeed . . .
