Indeed, Honored Sir, you are not alone in wishing for companions north of
the settled reaches of the Steppes and Elfsea. I honor and respect Glaslyn,
indeed, have recieved Honors from her.....but it is a long and dusty ride
(especially, after you get off work, on a weekday evening) to that Respected
Shire. Denton has Glaslyn, Greenville has Hounds Rest...perhaps it is time
for the Sherman/Gainsville area to have a gathering place for those of us
who live just south of the Great Bloody Red River......

OK good gentyls... I am certain I may have made a fool of myself with the
last posting... Let us agree, T'was the heat and a touch of Rum...

  None of the good gentyls of Glaslyn or other places "nearby" have done any
"misdeeds" or whatever... I suppose I was just barking my frustrations
outloud... howling at the edge of the abyss (and the edge of the World).

  Since SCA participation is ones OWN responsibility... I have none to blame
save myself... for any lack of participation on my own part. I suppose I
could say that I should get up off my old half dead arse and do something...
yet at the same time,  have been doing alot LOL! Working my half dead arse
OFF trying to make a mundane life here in the great state of Texas... which
has left me little time and energy for things of the Knowne World. Ergo, the
frustration... which I did blurt out on a public SCA group forum... My
apologies to all.

  However... even in my worst moments, I find that sometimes there is merit
in the rum induced mad rantings of this old battleaxe toting warrior... and
perhaps forming a shire up here, north of civilized territory, may not be
such a bad idea, in and of itself.

  I realize everyone has a Life... and all are just trying to live theirs
and get by day to day... And  know people have their established routines
and their own circle of friends. But I will tell you truly, I am beginning
to become very very lonely since I have been here in Ansteorra (since March
of 06). So I will admit that 90% of that situation is my own fault... and I
shall let y'all decide if or where any other shortfall lay from an SCA
hospitality standard or perspective.

  So, I will close now... having apologized for the mad rantings... perhaps
I shall be forgiven this trespass... and we begin again... anew.

  bestt regards
  Baron Wylfred

A question: Did I miss something??? I mean other than our
weekly fighter practices, monthly populace meetings and other local events?
something is in the wind there (possibly too much heat?) and I am not sure
what to truly think of it... If I have missed something of importance, will
someone let me know what it was? May Fortune Smile On You All!
With Respects, Iain
Faith, Honor and Kingdom...
