It was a fun weekend.
Friday evening the weather was beautiful, even a little on the chilly side. I joined some friends out at a very cool, undiscovered bar in south Dallas called Lee Harvey's. I tried a new cider, the only one they served, and I really liked it; Strongbow. It was more dry than it was sweet, like me!
Saturday I slept till about 10am. It felt so good to be sleeping in. I met up with my buddy Robert at the faire and he suggested we go out after faire in our rennie garb and kilts. Awesome! I drove home, got in a quick nap and then headed to north Dallas to hang out with the straights in an English pub called Sherlocks. They had a really great band, and we, of course, got lots of attention. Robert is more flashy than I am, his kilt was red and the feathers in his beret were taller. But he likes to be the center of attention more than I do, so that was OK by me. We did kind of draw attention to ourselves and posed for many pictures. My drinking horn (yes Larry, it's a real bull's horn) had more girth where as Robert's had more length. Guess who made jokes about it all night? lol
I got home Sunday morning around 2:30am and slept till after 10 this time. I was a wee bit more hungover than I was on Saturday morning, so I just had a lazy morning sitting out on my patio sipping coffee.
I headed back down to the faire in the afternoon where I joined in all the court dances. I am finally learning the dance steps well and learning the names of them too. I got more into the character of the dance and quite enjoyed myself. I ran into my friends, the owner of the Sherwood Forest faire in Austin and his partner. I hung out with them in the evening and really enjoyed the nice weather.
A beautiful sunset greeted me on my way home and I snapped this picture at a stoplight. I thought it caught my mood of the day very well.
Hope y'all had a nice weekend as well.
