Highland Games

Yesterday was a beautiful spring day… Or perhaps a day better suited to late fall. Of course, it was the end of July, but who’s quibbling?

Either way, it was a great day to head to the renaissance faire! The one around here isn’t one of the biggest; you have to head to the other end of the state for that, but it is set in a lovely wooded area, so that even the hottest of summer days aren’t bad, and a day like yesterday, with its patchy clouds, is near to heaven.

This year, there was no jousting. Instead, on the jousting field, they had Highland Games, requiring audience participation! Of course, they get guys by the boatload down on the field, but few of the girls want to play. I wonder why… Who doesn’t want to toss a rock and a caber around?!? Well, I was one of 4 girls who volunteered.

Rock Toss

We really did use a 16-pound rock.

Caber Turn

We did, however, use the “ladies’ caber”. Quite a bit lighter and shorter than a standard one. Still amazingly fun to toss, though! And I did manage to turn it properly and land it just at 12 o’clock.

Win Circle

The victory celebration! (Thot almost had to rescue me from the Scottish redheads…)

But he got his turn later. He found sharp pointy things to throw.


And a fun day was had by all…

P.S. We found a new friend for a friend. She had kind eyes.

Mail Call!

I was wondering if the appearance of this…


in my mailbox signals that I just might have a problem. Apparently, they appreciate the amount of money that I’ve spent there this year.

Then again, that’s just a catalog to entice me into spending more money.

My local gun shop sent me a gun mat for Christmas because I spend so much money there. Thot only considered that a problem because he didn’t get one, too!

After much discussion in #gbc last night, I said that I would be posting a pic of my new corset (not with me in it yet, as I haven’t yet taken possession of said corset). But soon!
