Rabble, Rabble, Travel, Rabble

It's been a while since I've updated here but that's mostly because there hasn't been much going on - sort of.

After MDRF ended I packed up the Inn and headed South. The Rogues had a show at the Sarasota Medieval Fair and we had a little trouble actually getting there.

We stopped for a couple days break at Randy's parents house in NC. Of course, the day we were set to leave there I started up The Inn and gasoline came pouring out from under the hood. Not good. Turns out my fuel pump went kaput. The part cot me $60 and a full day to put it in and we were set to go.

30 miles outside of Sarasota Randy's rig started acting up by not dropping into gear. Off to the shop it wen where it sat for two days while we did the festival. The issue? Turns out the parking break didn't release properly as Randy was driving with it sort of engaged which ended up overheating the transmission. That little incident cost $500. What a pain in the ass.

After Sarasota, I traveled up to Louisiana where friend's Pam and Steve live. I did Thanksgiving there which was a fabulous decision. The food and company were excellent. I met some new friends, spent time with old friends and just really had a wonderful day.

December sees me in San Marcos, TX where I'll be for at least the next 6 months. I'm staying at Medieval Moccasins' headquarters while working for them building up stock to handle the spring/ early summer festivals.

Coming back to San Marcos is like coming home. I spent enough time here last year that I sort of know my way around town and know what's in the general area. The land emits a lovely homey vibe since it's familiar and beautiful. It was definitely sad to pull in here knowing that Ingrid's smile wasn't going to be greeting me. I took some time and went to say my greetings in her Gemini Garden.

This weekend I'll be at Dickens on the Strand in Galveston, TX. The Rogues have several shows there and it's a fun little Victorian Christmas themed street festival. So if any of the readers here are in the area, I'd love to see you! You'll be able to find me selling Rogues merchandise at their shows or just hanging out in the street hooping near Murphy's Irish Pub.
