‘Till the end of time Annarousse will love” The Boy’s Dad

Basha, we’re sorry. We will no longer know the delight of your body. Congratulations! Love, Morningwood.

To friends not here -- I raise my glass. We miss you Robert - Pennsic Independent.

Papalou n’est plus! Papamou! Papamou!

Fergus - My life, both mundane and SCAdian, is wonderful because I share it with you. I hope that all our Pennsics are as special as this one. You are the twinkle in my eye, the laugh on my lips, and the love of my heart. Now and forevermore - Maggie

You who struggled the rough road with your burden,

Armor to fight a waiting foe,

Your view of the natural order of things,

is most desperately flawed.

A lady who stopped to let you pass by,

A lady whom you did not know,

said, “Lord, I yield the way to you.”

No courtesy did you show.

You said, “It’s the natural order of things.”

Meaning that you should come first.

But, you made a serious misstep, my lord,

For the lady you did not know.

I am said lady and I am a bard,

And I have a mem’ry of steel,

For all of your burdens you never have carried,

A wound such as stories can wield.

I know not your name or the camp where you rest,

I know not your purpose in war,

But the natural order of things demands grace,

Of which you have none rest assured.

The natural order of things, my lord

Is that ladies and bards deserve thanks,

One is for chivalry, the other for words,

Above all your rude ways they rank.

On this particular day, for this particular reason, we send this message bearing our good wishes. Happy Birthday Oswald. Love, from House Bluebrick.

To the people who took Misty Highlands and Greenwood’s signs: You are the most dishonorable, unchivalrous, disrespectful low-lifes at Pennsic. Using our heraldry to test your idiotic theories of hydroengineering in a ditch is neither amusing nor appropriate. I hope you develop some remnant of honor and courtesy.

Sorcha - Thank you for sharing my war and my life and making each that much more magical. We have our foundation now, let’s build the rest of our lives together. As always, these words are inadequate to the feeling in my heart. I love you very, very much - Alasdair
