That insolent colonial, John Chappell, has launched an all-out assault on this house, suggesting that I perform the work of a yeoman:

1a. An attendant, servant, or lesser official in a royal or noble household. b. A yeoman of the guard. 2. A petty officer performing chiefly clerical duties in the U.S. Navy. 3. An assistant or other subordinate, as of a sheriff. 4. A diligent, dependable worker. 5. A farmer who cultivates his own land, especially a member of a former class of small freeholders in England. (American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language)

I have always liked to think of myself as the yo-yo-man.
