Blackstone Raid is happening this week! We'll be in West Virginia, and looking forward to seeing a bunch of our friends! ^_^ Lemony will probably spend some time fishing, and otherwise running about and enjoying herself. Brian will be fencing and compete in the Torchlight Tournament. I'll see if I can go sit in on some classes. I dont have anythign specifically made for the A&S tournament, so I'll probably sit this one out. Brian might submit a gemstone, though. Although this is technically "work" for me, I always look at Blackstone fondly. Blackstone is full of firsts for us....
