Looking for a nine-foot square Monopoly board

Visiting Ken Barmy in his lair I am astonished to find that he's got a whiteboard the size of a wall behind his desk.

"Who's got the world's biggest whiteboard now?"

he crows. I can only gape.

"Isn't it brilliant? I'm astonished I've got away with it."


"They asked me if I wanted anything. I said I'd like a whiteboard please. They said to measure it up and get it ordered. And so... Well, here it is."

"What are you going to do with it now you've got it?"

"I shall draw pictures of Susannah York running barefoot through dewy meadows."

"They'll not be pleased with you for doing that."

"Don't see why not. It would be one of the more constructive things going on round here at the moment."

It's all I can do to hide my envy.

I saw a movie with Susanna running (well, skipping) through a meadow. Alas, not barefoot. Your friend (?) may want to try and see if he can get his hands on "Greengage Summer".

Ooooh, Susannah York running barefoot through dewy meadows... If they try to take Ken's whiteboard away he should take his case to the highest court in the land - there's not a jury would convict him!

Who is Susannah York? Is she related to the Duchess?

Lavinia: I'm not going to encourage him, he's bad enough as it is. He's got it almost as bad as gadjo.
