Again I will say I am happy with her work. I do think that becoming an asst. deputy of Training is not a bad way to go. Gerita can alway use help.

Oh, for Pete's sake!  You were with me when we did the guy who insisted on putting his <frowsty> fighter's hand in the common drink cooler, weren't you?  Allison was at that time KC, and I think Caelin was Elfsea's Baronial.  She had to come look at the guy's hand because i told him to hie his glutes to the doc to have that thumb set, as I recall, yes?  That 'little apprentice' was so enthusiastic, so obviously capable, and so willing to follow our silly rules that tied her down and wouldn't let her be an EMT.  Yes, Caley, you've grown up into a fine Journeyman.  
And to all those Chirurgeons who 'only take one Apprentice', I must gently point out to you that no one has 'their own' apprentices in Ansteorra.  We all share the work of bringing up all the apprentices.  Why?  because of situations just like this one, and several others we've (the KC and Deputies) fallen over in the past few years, in which the Apprentice never gets 'made' despite, in some cases, literally years of Apprenticeship!  Please, folks:  Apprentices are not the property of individual Chirurgeons; they belong to ALL of us.  That way, they get the benefit of working with several Chirurgeons who might just remember to share what the one before forgot about.  Now, if you befriend an Apprentice, it's perfectly fine to push their 'rights' to the KC when they seem ready to be a Journeyman.  And it's ALWAYS acceptable to pass your baldric to that person when they are made Journeyman (after you sign it on the inside, with the years you wore it).  Just, please, pass them around
 during their training phase - it really does make better Journeymen.
And to those of you willing to serve as CIC:  when an Apprentice signs in with you, please get them quickly to a Journeyman so they can begin showing what they can do.  See that they're passed around over the course of the weekend, to anyone willing to take them (especially some of those lazy Masters), and see that Evals are done by everyone who worked with them and saw them do even a Band-Aid.

PS:  So, Caley, where would you like to see yourself in the Chirurgeonate in 5 years?  That'll help us find you the next 'assignment'.

Sorry for the miss-spelling. Yes, dear it was you! Muhahaha .....You made me! You got me some of my first recognized apprentice hours up at a canton event I believe. Caelin was there and Allison, I beleive was on the throne. Up til you, I was confronted with alot of people saying to me, how society doesn't want chirurgeons who are emts. You were like "great" come sit by me. I had gone to another event up in that region and people kept saying stuff like " I made her, and him, and her" but I can only take one apprentice at a time.  It sounded like being squired and I swore off the chirurgeonate and started wearing the paramedic patch on my belt. You were very kind to me, when I wasn't sure this is what I needed to pursue or quit trying.
Sorry I spelled your name wrong again..... hope I haven't disappointed you as one of your apprentices.
