Fighter practice tonight at Roger's Park, 7:00pm.
HE Elisabeth and I will be journeying to Defender of the Fort in Huntsville this Saturday. It's about a two hour drive from our house, but we always get lost. We'll be leaving around 5:30am which will give us time to stop for a snacky.
We're going to the event to help Raven's Fort any way we can because of their unwavering support of Bordermarch during BAM.
We will be day-tripping this event and will be traveling light.
The rain has slowed my many projects these last few days, but I have finalized the design of the new Blacksmith shop. Since some large bridge timbers will be utilized in the shop's construction, you might receive an invite for crumpets and tea at the Baronial Manse
in the not too distant future.
I had intended to make my own medieval style arrows to match my bow, but I couldn't snag any geese for the fletching; I opted to purchase a few arrows instead.
I shall now challenge my nemesis, M' lord Carlos, to a shoot-off. I would like to recreate a period atmosphere during the shoot-off with an apple placed on Lord Adolf's big-old-water head as a target.
The period archery competition will allow me to once again wear my green spandex tights. The tights were part of my stage costume during my early years as a musician, I retired them just before I met my lovely Lady Elisabeth. Elisabeth is not the jealous kind, but the green tights use to drive the women crazy! I wish I had a Robin Hood hat, but I don't. I'll probably just use a green hunting sock on my head.
I asked our grape expert Lord Aaron Whitewolf, about my miserable little grape vine that never produces grapes, he gave me some sage advice. He told me that the grape vine is not producing any grapes because there something wrong,--WOW!!, what a wizard! He did say I need to pluck and prune something, and take it out of the coffee can I'm using as a planter pot. Is it self-pollinating or not? I don't know. Do I need to mate it up with another grape vine of the opposite sex? I don't know. I bought the vine at Wal-Mart, it came with no instructions. Until I figure this out I will continue to purchase grapes.
I squeezed my limes yesterday and they were still hard; I guess I have to wait before I can put the lime in the coconut and shake it all up.
