Unto M'lord Carlos the Dominator,

Unfortunately, I can't do it today because I have to go to work, and you need to go to your kindergarten class.

You being but six years old means nothing to me, I shall begin my practicing in earnest when I get home this very evening.

Your many attempts to assassinate me during last year's Gulf War failed miserably because I've been secretly studying the mystical martial art know as; "Nodysoon".

By the way, tell your momma, Lady Colecte the Shocker, that I discovered that she has been secretly growing a grapevine on a poorly handcrafted trellis. I'm sure she was going to let the vine flower with bunches of sweet grapes, and then let all the world know that she is a better grape grower than me! Tell her that I scoff in reserved silence at her attempt to shame me just because her young assassin son cannot complete her simple order to assassinate the baron!

As much as I dislike the thought of spying on you and your conniving momma, I am forced to utilize the Seventh Hand of Kebol's Assassin's Guild to ward my back until a fair competition can be arranged. We shall soon see which of us is truly the best archer of all time!

A very tired runner arrived at the Manse late last night and endeavored to deliver a verbal missive. The message was too garbled to make any sense of it, and the runner said that he was not privy to its author. I pondered on the message and finally realized that it was sent from you and your momma to distract my supreme concentration on our upcoming competition.

I shall expect more attempts from you and your momma to shame me, but I will persevere, and in the end it will be Carlos the Dominator, and his momma, Lady Colecte the Shocker, who's shadows shall fade to nothing as the brilliance of my glory grows closer! 

HE Santiago

Greetings Bordermarch,

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 
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 
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 

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.

HE Santiago
