Who is Garland Faunt-Lubberly?

Why is he British but living in Quebec? What’s gardening got to do with drinking? Is this for real? And where on earth is St-Alphonse-de-Couchetard?

I'm Canadian so I pronounce it "Aboot." No, I don't! I don't know any Canadian who says "aboot." Damnable lies! But I do know this Canadian is all about humour (with a U) and satire. Come by. I don't bite, or as we Canadians say, "beet."

    Gob smacked, just Gob smacked that a man of your continental suavitee should grace us with his debonair presence, especially in the sub-continent of Quebec (One imagines it to be easier to separate anything that is a “sub-” (unless it happens to be a 12 inch assorted Italian -we hold onto those with uncommon ardour) as if it is already delineated with a tearable, perforated, dotted line.) Your gardening and drinking tips are taken all the more to heart because of your unquestionable gallantness. Thank you for your contribution to our humble colonial existence. Should you grow tired of your stay in the Eastern Townships, just say the word and we will happily arrange for you to immigrate to Canada. Meanwhile have happy stay and beware of the moose.


  2. Garland Faunt-Lubberly sounds like the kind of guy who got shoved into gym lockers and a received lot of wedgies when he was in middle school. It is a “he,” right? I have a classic black thumb. I spread death where there was once life. I killed a cactus once by accidentally bringing a window crashing down on it.

  3. Garland is atypical of British media gardeners. Most of them are sexually repressed. It’s the celebrity chefs who are the drunks.

    Sometimes something is just fine on its own and doesn’t need any spritzing, but I’m compelled to cast a few words into the box, coins in the open guitar case pr’haps. Nice work, Ross.

Go ahead, don't be shy.
