huzzah!


The faire!

Tried on a 23" steel-boned $300 satin corset and very reluctantly took it off. Petted an ox, played in the rain, and picnicked. Got sunburned shoulders, a splinter and a smoky quartz.
It was a lovely day.

We need a photo of Mike with chain mail and a battle axe. Or at least a walking staff and a flagon of brew!

You haven't lived until you smack your best friend in the back of the head with a turky drumstick whilst shouting, "Huzzah, and twenty pounds for the King!".

When I was stationed in Southern California I used to go every year to the Faire in Agoura, at the Fox Ranch. They had semi-permanent structures there and it purported to the be the largest in the world. In any event it was tremendous fun, although for years I resisted going in costume because it seemed ridiculous.

Then I broke down and put together a costume (helped that I got my hands on a two handed sword). It was even more fun, by an order of magnitude.

Yoiks, and away!

Robert - Mike does not attend the faire. He dislikes it so much that he used to pay for my friend's ticket so that he wouldn't have to go and I wouldn't go alone.

TBolt - pot, kettle.

less - I took the Smith & Wesson .38, model 642. It fits nicely in a purse (I don't have a thigh holster)

Steel-boned, eh?
Is that from the medieval torture chamber or the medieval boudoir?

Or both?

Y'know, I'm convinced you and Falnfenix would hit it off instantly if you two ever met.

I thought Mike couldn't have gone with you, since you took that off before you got home...
