Ren Fair and other stuff

The boys were down last weekend, about ten of us went to the ren fair. Greg brought a couple of his buddies from the marines, Kyle came by himself. It was such great fun! Lots of shows, shopping and just hanging out. Greg found a sword that he liked, Kyle found a practice sword that he liked. I found a great walking stick, a beautiful parasol, a neat necklace, a small woven pouch, and a CD of one of the performers (the singer of the New World Renaissance Band, he has a gorgeous voice). Everyone enjoyed themselves.

Greg passed the first course in his classes, he not only passed he was at the top of his class! He received a book and a certificate.

Kyle took the test for becoming an E-4, he won't know the results of the test until sometime in June. When he passes, the promotion won't take effect until September.

Not much of a spring

This week has been rather warm. It's been almost 90 the last couple of days, if it keeps this up we may hit 100 before the end of March. Normally it doesn't get that warm until May. Haven't even had time to contemplate the cleaning, maintenance, and replacing of things on the swamp cooler. That stuff isn't usually done until April. We may just see record heat this summer, over 120. That's life in the desert.

Hope everyone has a beautiful spring this year.
