Don’t forget to pack your suit, Michael

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2005
OK, Michael, we've been verbally jousting long enough. For your next visit to California I'm planning a different kind of adventure. Rather than hang out in the digital sandbox doing geek stuff, I think we'll do something else for fun but you'll need to bring your own suit ...

I don't want you to exceed the weight or size restrictions for international flights or have any trouble with airport security, Michael. Just pack your suit and leave your sword and lance at home. We'll pick up some weapons locally.

OK, that's not me on the horse. That's James Zoppe, founder of the American Jousting Alliance, which is not far from where I live. James put on a jousting tournament at our local equestrian center, one cold day in April, 1998. That's Mt. Pinos, covered in snow, in the background. (My house is up on the mountain on the left, just outside of the field of view.)

So if you lose Eric, does that mean you'll buy a Mac?

Looks great

Blast, that looks great... :-) I've joined a medieval swordfighting course in September, trading up for a horse and lance sure looks nice.

Must be great to attend such a day :-)

This wasn't part of the deal! I'm not sure I want my precious husband doing this.
