It was one heck of a punch. Knocked me clear from New England to Olde England, from Connecticut--to Camelot. Suddenly, there I was--with King Arthur, Launcelot, Morgan le Fay, and that faker, Merlin.

They needed a Boss. They needed--Me.

Name of the asylum, likely."It was a soft, reposeful summer landscape, as lovely as a dream, and as lonesome as Sunday. The air was full of the smell of flowers, and the buzzing of insects, and the twittering of birds, and there were no people, no wagons, there was no stir of life, nothing going on.
