I've had enough!

When we came outside into the insipid daylight, I looked up. Clouds, I noticed, were still gathering like a mighty armada of gray battleships waiting to attack once more. We started to look for somewhere to eat. Quickly. Across the street, we saw another large stately home, but I had seen enough for one morning. Even Frances did not press me to see more.

Your Grace--what can I say? I thank thee and proudly wear my mannish award and you see before you a proud Courtier of the Noble Brew.
Rebecca--you are so right! Prodigal Wife always wants to see one more thing...
Kate--you are funny! I like that. Although, really, we are probably virtually slender, don't you think?
