Fr Tim: What is that peculiar device you are brandishing Miss McLernon? Some newfangled device of the modernists?!

JMS said...

Now I wish we'd gone to the pub afterwards to meet some of you charming people. Wasn't it a great occasion!

"Sadly the cardinal didn't offer me Westminster, but I did manage to cadge his copy of latest Remnant. Now, buzz off!"

This not a caption, it's just a comment : What a splendid photo !

It makes Fr. Tim looks exactly as I have always imagined G.K. Chesterton's Fr. Brown.

Mac McLernon said...

LOL Emitte... except that Fr. Tim is way ahead of me in the gadget department!

JMS - you'll know better next time!

Ches - ROTFL !

Peter - thanks for the kind comment. I have to disagree with you on Chesterton though!

Pelicanus said...

I say this should be Fr Tim's picture on the Facebook!

PeterHWright said...

Mac,
I didn't mean to suggest that Fr. Tim himself resembles the fictional Fr. Brown !! Perhaps I'm thinking of another character.
But it's a smashing photo, and I think I would vote it the Photo of the Month, if not Photo of the Year !

I wish I could have been there.

Ma Tucker said...

Does Fr Tim remind anyone of Edward Woodward - THE EQUALISER, WICKER MAN fame ?

DigiHairshirt said...

Ma Tucker - exactly! Gosh, "The Equalizer" (we spell it with a "z" here in the States) was such a great series.

As for a caption, how about: "The vicar smiled, knowing his housekeeper fell once again for the old 'there's-an-unshriven-soul-in Kensington-needing-my-services' line on the night she planned to serve her new mango curry."

Haha! Surely a winner there!
