And now, Ladies and Gentlemen,

On the stage tonight we have a grand performance for you. An epic drama like no other!
Our hero, Field Marshall His Grace The Duke of Wellington in all his, “Up guards and at them!”, glory

meets his old nemesis, Napoleon Bonaparte, “A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of colored ribbon.”

“My two cats. Jetsam is the black and white one, Flotsam is the tortie-looking one.” –Amanda Beard Photography.

    Porcelain Bowl of Victory.
