Went to faire hoping to be introduced to the owners of a booth that needed some help, but they were staffed suficiently, but I ended up getting a position with Tisket Tasket, a basketmaker. I'll be carrying their banner in the parade and spotting them out for lunch and breaks as needed. Also saw an old friend from the dorms (Betsy) whom I haven't seen in about 4 years, and an old neighbor and friend, Jerry, who is living in KC after losing a chef's job in Europe. There is also a possibility of me apprenticing as a swordmaker with another old friend, Sam, when they relocate their shop after the first of the year, but I'll have to see how things work out scheduling wise before I worry about that. They grind down spring steel rather than actually forging it from scratch. Might be interesting, will have to see. |
Took plenty of pictures that must be sorted and touched up before putting up on the site. We may be gone for the next to last weekend of faire, depending on if we attend Archon. It's a real tossup on if we should go, but we decided to let fate decide. I can't remember if I made the hotel reservations yet, so I will call and check it out tomorrow. If I made the reservations, then we go. It is the last convention of the season, and it would be a real shame to miss.
Now I must work on the 29 pictures I took today and see which ones will hit the website.
