Life Moves Pretty Fast

Two thoughts.

If all is fair in love and war, the Faire is the place to wage it.

The second falls in line with the first for having heeded Ferris’ wisdom this weekend.

Yesterday, we combined both in one fell swoop. Having gone to the Bristol Renaissance Faire near the Wisconsin border for years, this year was another one we got to spend with Family.

Then this morning, everyone gathered around our table, telling stories on each other while we collectively downed Rick’s famous Farmer’s Strata along with his equally famous home-made Biscuits and Gravy.

As my loved ones motor back to their homes, let me share a photo essay of some of the festivities. I trust you too will travel well in the coming week. 

Remembering what Ferris said, now it’s only fair to share from the Faire. Enjoy.
