Hi Erix! How are you guys doing there in Lone Star State?? From the satellite imagery, looks like there's a lot of clouds there over this weekend!

We're doing great, thanks! Love it here but miss all of you guys. Paul's enjoying his new job and I'm pretty active with the Austin Astronomical Society and outreach plus other astro projects. Steph comes over to visit now and again (yay me!) and I also get to see Imjeffp now and again...he's great fun, too (yay me again!)

Yeah, this week hasn't been that good but we still had a nice outreach yesterday with cub scouts for their astronomy badges.

Ohio is not good for astronomy it seems.. that is why we make awesome beer to help us through the cloudy season (which is most of the year.. heheheh).

Hey gang! It was an exciting weekend for Nikki and I. Late Friday night around midnight, Jason made a surprise visit home with two of his buddies. We were so excited! Our friend Debbie and her daughter Angel came in after them to take Debbie's son, Zack, home for the weekend. So Nikki and I got to spend the time with Jason and his friend Jordan. Even the dog, Malcolm, got in on the excitement. This picture was taken about 1 o'clock in the morning. You can see how tired everyone was, but also how excited we were too.

In this picture, is Nikki, Debbie, Angel, Zack, Jason and Jordan.

Jason, Jordan and Zack were such a huge help to us by splitting wood and other heavy duty stuff I can't do with surgery scheduled for me on this coming Tuesday to finally get my rotator cuff repaired.

Sadly Scott missed out on this visit, but the boys did a lot of work that I know Scott appreciates. Fortunately they'll be back at Thanksgiving to see Dad.

On Saturday Jason, Nikki and Jordan had a great day playing and taking a trip to Fin-Feather-Fur. Kids just like their dad!

As for me, I spent the day back in the 14th century. Everyone that has come to the BEOTS star parties knows Howard (LDb) is involved with SCA medieval recreation and have all been curious about it and wanting to see one of the events he attends. Finally he had an event close enough that we could go to. Nikki didn't want to go because as she put it "I don't want to see a bunch of guys fighting in sweaty chainmail all day." She said she'd probably watch for about an hour and then be texting the rest of the day. Good thing Jason and Jordan were here to have an adventure of their own with Nik.

This is Howard battling in his 14th century armour. He's the black knight.

Hey Di, .... rotator cuff eh, listen up, all ya gotta do is get hold of a bowling ball, and just do a couple of winds around with it til you hear a snap! Presto, all popped out and ready for action!

No really, Howard is in there. Here he's taking a much deserved break. These guys really fight hard in their heavy armour.

Oh no, no, no Cuz! No more snapping for me. Thank you for the prayers.

Here's a picture of Howard with a 7 year old girl who asked him to fight for her in the toy battle. If he beat out all the other fighters, then she would win a toy. She picked him because she thought "he has the coolest armour".

It was so sweet watching her tie the ribbon on his arm that she sewed a little unicorn on.

Being that the SCA events aren't spectator events as they want folks who attend to participate...to step back in time with them. What fun! The ladies of the kingdom Howard is part of put together a perfect outfit for me to wear. Here I am dressed as a 13th century Scottish noblewoman. Couldn't have been more perfect with my Scottish blood. Every detail was handled down to the broach of a gryphon made of Scottish silver.

Well it was a picture of the king battling, but it won't let me post the photo. I'll post more tomorrow when the 'net isn't being so screwy.
