[Northkeep] Curious questions

Let's see. I met Kendra almost 10 years ago at my second event. (the same
one that I met, Ian:). It was the Castellan that Bell won. (so was that
Castellan 2 or 3?) She and Keigan were doing a soup kitchen thing right
across from out camp. My first real memory of her is waking up Sunday
morning at the event. Ian and I had left our shoes outside the tent so we
wouldn't dirty up the floor when we were inside talking and waiting for the
sun to come up (really that's all we did!:) I finally fell asleep for a
couple of hours and woke up to hear voice saying "OH! Look at the little
shoes!!! Ian has a friend!" (Ian--shoe size-13, Kelandra--shoe size 6 1/2:)
Then two months later, at the Interkingdom Peace she was cooking feast. She
convinced me that I wasn't too shy to come serve feast--so I served feast
and then she fed me. So you can blame her (and Keigan too:) for my
sometimes rampant interest in cooking feast. (<Sigh> Yes, I really do plan
to do another one...but not until Ian is not-the-seneschal)
Oh yes. and at gosh what event was it...I think it was Moonshadowe or
something...it was the cattle wars or something like that. We all received
'cows' (paper cows they were) and we were charged with protecting our cattle
and 'procuring' others. She decided she needed to label her cow...so she
got a marker and divided the cow up into meat groups, rump roast, sirloin,
hamburger, etc. I think Beorthlic and Elizabeta still have that cow around
Yes, she was a great person. I never once saw her angry, she was always a
joy to be around. I wish I had known her better. Maybe I will someday...

Jean Paul, Where to begin? She was a Seneschal, a hospitaller from
the word 'go'. And my friend. Here's a link to the Raptor's homepage
where you can see a picture of her.
She was always cooking feast or working a tavern. The tavern almost
always turned a profit. She had a way of putting people at ease. She
was a warm and funny person who giggled like a teenager. One of the
more popular Blackfox Warthaven's that appeared, featured her. She's
standing in her camp as she's setting up. She looks frustrated and is
stamping feet. Another character walks up to her and says;
"What's the matter Granny Wolf?"
"I just finished setting up my brand new threee-man tent and I can't
find the three men anywhere!"
This actually happened at event. She is really missed and it's hard to
believe how long she and William have been gone. I'm hopping your
question will prompt some others on this list to share. But it's still
so painful for many. I have often wanted to talk about these things
and these memories, but as I've said. Most people find it too
difficult. Good grief! Are those tears I see? Excus me please...
