MD Ren Fair

Made my annual trip to the Maryland Renaissance Fair on Sunday. Had a great time and the weather was fantastic

Here is a pic of me and a couple friends. We where waiting in front of the white Stag Tavern for some others who were on their way over.

Is it Friday Yet?

So far this week.

1. Our office was initiated into our new space by the locals this last weekend. Of the 10 vehicals in our fleet (A mix of Soil Conservation, Maryland Department of Ag and USDA vehicals) 6 of them where vandilized. It ranged from slashed tires to opinions painted on the vehicals. This is one of the few times I am glad I dont have a vehical of my own.

2. Im starting to work on another room in my house. One wall has quite a few cracks running through the hores hair plaster. To prep for this, I have to chisle out each crack, cleaning out all the crumbleing plaster. This will allow me to put a wire mesh in the crack (Yes, some of the cleaned out areas are as wide as 2 inches) before plastering. One of the cracks follows the corner between the wall and ceiling. As I was chilsing this out, I sorta lost balance and toppled off the ladder. (Not that my balence is all that good to begin with) Lessoned learned, limit time spent on that ladder :P
Hopefully I can get some picts up of work in progress on flicker soon.

3. Attacked by a cat that was trying to make a home in my upstairs open porch. I go up there once in a while this time of year to check for wasps nests. The little buggers seem to like the environs up there so I will get quite a few nests popping up this time of year. I walk up the steps and pop through the door and have a very scared hissing cat running at me. I stomped on the floor and yelled which caused the cat to change directions and shoot out the window. As cats do, it landed on all fores and bolted out of the back of my yard. I never did look to see if any wasp nests where forming. Looks like I need to get a screen door put up.

On a good note
Everything I planted in my garden has survived the late frosts we have had, and is actualy comming up. If everything survives that is comming up now, I will have lots of spinach to feeze this year :) (And this is only my spring planting)

Maybe I just need a vacation.

And maybe a Dungeon Crawl

Looks like one of the board gaming groups I meet with (GCOM) has a small group that wants to spend a day playing D&D

They assumed I could make it (havent gotten the schedual yet) so im rolling up a gnome character just in case they schedual it so I can make it.

We have plenty of warriors, healers and casters. After talking to the DM about what he will accept, he suggested and so im going with a duel class rogue/ranger

Hopefully there is not a lot of difrence between the first 3.0 basic books and the ones out now cause that is what I will be working with to roll up my first version 3 toon :)

Now, where do I start and where are my dice ........!
