Unfortunately, the only pictures of last night's Populace are trapped in my mind with no way out!
I shall look through my Good Housekeeping magazines and see if I can find some photos that sort of resemble our populace at last night's meeting.

Good morning Bordermarch,
I am bit saddened right now because I did not wake up in time to watch the Royal
wedding this morning; I do hope I can live with the emptiness that now weighs
heavy on my heart!
During last night's Populace a few things previously known only to a select few
were finally laid out bare for public pondering and speculation.
First of all I'd like to thank HE Dona Leah for revealing to the group that the
large camp kitchen she has been secreting away for her personal use these last
few years will finally be at our disposal should we need it for our Baronial
event, or maybe even at the Ansteorra Heraldric/Scribal Symposium; she is such
As per Lady Jillian's previously posted email, it was announced that Lady Cymme
& Lord Slovacek's devices passed. When the announcement was made the room
virtually erupted with jubilant joy, and every eye in the room, even the eye of
the guy in the bathroom, was wetted with tears.
Lord Jacob Rot Ross Templin continues his quest to design the perfect portable
shower. His journey has led him to Home Depot and all the other Big-Box stores
in the area. We are all waiting with wetted lips for a scaled prototype.
HE Therese, our Treasurer, has balanced the books and finished her reports. With
help and guidance from Lord Thomas, the Treasurer office's new lap-top computer
has been ordered. HE Therese will soon be able to discard the baronial abacus
and move into the 21st century.
Lord Chrestien Brule brought his new welded chainmail shirt for the
Show-and-Tell portion of the populace meeting. It appeared very well made and
was lighter than one would expect a mail shirt to be. Without realizing it he
may have stumbled onto a new fashion trend for the light fighters in the group.
Sir Simonn talked about the Last Days of Christ demo, and it seems it was very
well attended. The demo was a introduction to the SCA for several potential
Although not present, Lady Angelica our Hospitaler, was represented by Countess
Tessa, the Coastal Regional Hospitaler. Countess Tessa said Lady Angelica was
doing an outstanding job, her reports are turned in on time, and her New/Old
articles which are printed in the Trumpeter every month are being well received
by others in our fair Kingdom. Keep up the good work Lady Angelica!
HE Don Armand was not present, but his most favorite cadet, Lord Nikolai, was.
Lord Nikolai and Lord Malcolm are the Autocrats for this year's baronial. Lord
Nikolai gave a stellar report to the populace on all the happenings pertaining
to the event so far.
Last year we had about 50 or more Bordermarchers at our baronial event and this
year, with Crown attending the event, we'll need that same number and more to
help spread the work load. Contact the autocrats to see where they could best
use your help during the event.
Lady Jillian came through once again and provided the populace with some
homemade garlic bread and a heaping bowl of a smooth hootis spread that was
judiciously infused with secret herbs and spices. It all disappeared in short
Lord Biau, our extreme leader of our Scribal Guild, has offered to move the
scribal classes now being held on every other Sunday to a time slot that would
be more convenient for attendees. Every other Friday was thrown out there as a
possible date and it was well received. Since we'd like to get some more input
pertaining to the date change of the classes, please contact Lord Biau or
someone else and let them know what you think about it.
HE Elisabeth and me, Sir Simonn and Countess Tessa, M'Lord Atli Karlsson, Lord
Chrestien Brule and the kids, HE Dona Leah, and-----you fill in your name
here---- will be attending the Shire of Blackmoor Keep's Forest Maiden event in
Lake Charles this Saturday, that's tomorrow.
Since it's such a short drive, about an hour from Beaumont, we'll be arriving at
site early. We plan on sitting around in the shade doing nothing except eating
some green grapes.
HE Dona Leah will be running the rapier scenarios and Lord Chrestien Brule will
be helping. If you can only come out for but a few hours, come on down! Eat some
grapes with us. Watch the fighting. Maybe we'll see a Chupacabras chasing a
Contact me if you need directions, but since I usually get lost going to events,
you might do better getting directions from their website, just type into
Google, "Blackmoor Keep Forest Maiden" and that should get you there.
Don't forget about the Heather Dale concert at our house 110 Dawn Dr. in Silsbee
Tx. on May 2, this coming Monday. It's open to everyone. Contact me if you need
directions or some other info.
If you type in our address on your GPS or a Google map you only get as far as
our mailbox at the top of the hill. Continue straight down the hill, around the
corner, past the red barn, and on to the our yellow house at the end of that
