Singed and black
She once wore red
Luckily she's alive
Lives with me—pays no rent
Once in a while for old time's sake she guards my door

I had misread Susan's explanation so was thinking the armored figure was a lady.

I am not going to change my story though. He is rather slender.

I love your story as it is. I'm glad she is appreciative! Not all of us are! Fun take on the pic of the day, Jim! Hope you have a great week!

You're right. He is rather thin in the waist.
Nice one.

Maybe the Knight was Gay?

Joan of Arc was his girlfriend?

A gay knight in a suit of armor possibly. LOL I love this. Never mind Susan's instructions. It's you to interpret the picture anyway you want and I really enjoy this. Love the Gravatar by the way :)

And why should chivalry be gender specific? ;-)

Wow! Very unique take on this week's picutre, Jim. I like it. The poor girl sounds like she has PTSS from the fire.

Perhaps your knight was what inspired Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) to sing "Dude Looks Like a Lady"?

I like it! A light days work for free rent.

Loved your story, Jim. (And thanks for the Paris Hilton reference in your comments on mine ;)]

Have a great week.

I think the armor looks feminine too. :)

That is a rather wasp waisted suit of armor. :)

A picture Speaks a Thousand Words. Laugh at Thom's comment.

Don't Mind Susan, her Bark is worse than her Bite. ☺

I still am leaning towards an EMO Suit of Armor.

I think that deal worked well for both parties concerned! Good take on the picture.

She's a regal guard for sure...LOL.

Why shouldn't ladies wear armour? Well, I suppose the chastity belt was a sort of armour.
Jim, we have WD40 in UK and have used it liberally and frequently through the years. I hope your tin man is regularly oiled and polished.

Nice one! I like it a lot - and having a lady knight is such a nice twist.

Erm... at the risk of sounding a little anti-feminist - if it belonged to a lady, wouldn't the visor be up? First, you could see her come hither eyes, and second, she'd be able to talk without sounding like she was a ventriloquist's dummy, and all ladies like to talk - don't they?! :)
