Your Excellency Elisabeth,
Yes ma'am, support of friends and chosen family are needed in several areas
of the populace at present and of recent.
Isn't it true that one of the really special qualities of the barony is how
we have examples such as yourself and others who bring us together with
encouragement to "be there" for one another. With families in bereavement
and families experiencing health needs and others who have other requests
about work or home, though our numbers are small, we can and do all help
each other through. My family has prayers going as you say.
Thanks for the review of the past weekend campout. ...I was looking for a
comment about a hole dug in the middle of a tent floor... maybe HE Santiago
will tell the tale?

The camp out this past weekend was GREAT. We missed so many of you and wish
you could have been there. It was a little cold Friday night and Saturday
morning but once the sun came out it was great. L Phocus, L Ellen, a
niece,m'l Therese and nephew, m'l Stephen camped. C Simonn and C Tessa
camped as well as HE Santiago, myself and our granddaughter m'l Harley. We
had 12 others come up on Sat to hang out.....L Zane, L Calvin, L Phalisitte,
m'l Taylor, L Jillian, L Thomas, m'l Morgan, m'l Harmony, HE Caitrin, HE
Armand, L Beau & L Karen. Several of the rapiers practiced their craft while
L Beau did some calligraphy and the lady's discussed period cooking while
passing around a book of period recipes. The children had a wonderful time
playing in the "kingdom" as they called it which was actually the castle.
They threw pine cone bombs at L Phocus, L Ellen and myself from the top of
the castle, walked the ravine and around the pond, played with a camp
dog and tended the fire while roasting marshmallows. They also where able
to see the fascinating world of leaf cutting ants and how they strip a Yopon
tree of its leaves. They seemed to watch the ants for hours!!
Lots of stories old and new were told by all and the laughter was
contagious. Dinner consisted of chickens roasted over an open fire, baked
beans X 2, wild rice, smothered greens, breads, roasted pork and vegetables,
baked apples with raisins and an assortment of fruits. C Tessa, HE
Elisabeth, L Ellen, L Jillian and HE Caitrin all contributed to the
wonderful feast. I'm sure they will be sharing their recipes in Aprils
Trumpeter. We will definitely do it again in the near future.
Santiago and I would also like you to keep L Padraigin and L Ellen in your
thoughts. They need our support and prayers as they go through this very
difficult time with their families.
