I have heard it said that I am the boldest Knight in all the kingdom! At least that is what I think I heard - maybe they said I am the oldest Knight in all the kingdom? I am a bit hard of hearing, so I tend to shout most everything I say. I also seem to get things mixed up now and then. Recently, the King asked me to walk the royal dog, and when I washed the royal hog, the hog was not amused! I just want to be a devoted and faithful Knight.
