If you're not a fighter or unable to fight what can you do to enjoy an fighting-heavy event. Calontir's recent Winter War Maneuvers was the perfect event to explore what you can do. Have a look.
Bardic Bedlam is here, in the Barony of the Lonely Tower. It’s a bardic sharing event named after the book series with a similar name. This year I had a different job for it. My friend Lady Zafara Baabur asked me to be the crash-space coordinator, a new-to-me task. So I did my usual and winged it. Common On Site Sleeper […]
After my life’s recent craziness I took a little break. I drove to the far south side of Kansas City, MO, to visit my long time friends, again. I arrived in time for a BBQ party and a chance to see their extended family. (No pictures, sorry.) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sunday we went sailing on Perry Lake, with their son Joe’s family. This was […]
A few days ago I went to the Old Market again. That is always a chance for pictures. I never know where they will pop up.

Revisited my best and longest friends last weekend. They live in a small town outside of Kansas City, Missouri. I last saw them in November for their 50th Anniversary. We had such a wonderful visit then, I returned for more fun and promise to repeat often. Besides chatting hours sharing life stories they asked what I wanted to see around […]
I can’t believe my best friends celebrated their 50th Anniversary. It’s not possible! I was in their wedding. How could that be that long? We double dated before we all got married. Road motorcycles together. SCUBA dived. Saw drive in movies together. Parked. That was the ’60s. We have woven in and out of each others lives over those many years. […]
