Quandary Resolution 1719
camelot, corkscrew, flounder, tittle
Old Ma Geneva Whortley lived halfway up the mountain in what Father would call a lean-to except it wasn't really leaning against anything but a pair of spindly blueberry bushes, which Garth finally found after some hours of floundering along a deer track through the woods, corkscrewing over and around rocks, stumps, and things with thorns until he saw a lopsided sign on which was painted, with an arrow pointing straight ahead, the name "CAMELOT", which was either touching or creepy depending on whether one was a fan of Lerner and Loewe or Sir Thomas Mallory, the matter complicated by the fact that there were confusing tittles of paint over the "O" and an amorphous splash under the "C", suggesting that King Arthur's castle had succumbed to a strong Turkish influence and, taking into account the condition of the dwelling in front of him, that didn't reflect very well on the Turks.
