    Carry bags, serve during dinner, the odd errand and if they're good enough serve as valets occasionally.

    General dog's body. Maybe double as a valet. Ideally, also rubs feet? icon_smile.gif

    Reminds me of the hot gameskeeper Skudder in Maurice. He's in the new Sherlock series as a police inspector. There's one episode where they go back to the country and he uses the same accent as when he was climbing the ladder. That makes no sense unless you've seen the movie and the TV series I guess.

    I could cook if the maid and the butler took care of the rest, but I really would like all three. For a small household, it seems like the butler could do some footman stuff. If it really has to be only one, then the maid would win because I hate housework and my house shows it. Maybe I did too much of it as a kid.

    It's not that nice to have strangers share the intimacy of your place, no matter how handy they are.

    Do you like Mrs. Patmore?

    But don't forget about the footmen, chauffeur, housekeeper, maids, and valet. Downton Abby has more servants than regular people.
