Erik,And what did you mean by: "those fiendish Danes left behind all the pretty girls"
They left them at home - I'd guess, from what I've seen throughout my life, hehe.
Then the Vikings arrived and those fiendish Danes left behind all the pretty girls . . . AGAIN!
One of those Danish girls escaped and came to Canada so she could be my momErik,
You got it. After 14 years in the UK, I imported my wife :whoo:, not from Denmark but the principle applies.
At one time the Vikings were a bunch of godless pagan rabble-rousers who went around raping and pillaging and plundering.Stew, I just read the Vikings went "on tour" - because there were too few brides to be had.
So to get a better shot at being a groom, they had to get fame and fortune.
With too few girls to begin with, they certainly wouldn't risk bringing them.
Anyway, that's a theory.
For sayin the word 'Ban' too often in one sentence :lol::lol:Maybe we should all just read the banns and then all hold hands on the band wagon to ban the bans. (I like Ike!) But then we would have to form a committee and make banners declaring the banning of would-be banners, who would be banned to the barrens just north of Banff....
Sounds like deliberate obfuscation, but it's really all quite clear! Just a bunch of banner banter.:rant:
