One of my ancestors was the last person spoken to by King Harold at the Battle of Hastings. The king turned round in his saddle and said to him " Be careful with that Bow and Arrow soldier, you could have someones eye out ".
In a similar vein:-
Robin Hood at age 75 was lying on his death bed when he called the Merry Men to his side. The merry men seeing how frail he was asked " Robin when you die where should we Bury you ? Robin told them to bring him his trusty Longbow and one arrow. He asked them to open the bedroom window, notched the arrow and began to pull back on the bow. " Wheresoever this arrow lands there shall be my final resting place " So they buried him on top of the wardrobe !
