Damn so busy sewing ballgowns, mantuas and embroidering coats, making desks and galley boxes, wrapping cargo, that I almost forgot to pack the fishing poles...

Oh btw, everyone else will be so bloody busy whilst I am fishing that they won't have time to take pictures either....

:lol:

Oi anyone know how to properly sharpen a quill?? I have 1500 pardons to sign... I guess I will have to fish with my left hand, I have a feeling the right one is going to be a bit cramped...

Speaking of Momma Ratzzi, will she have the photos from RF5 with her? There were some pics she took that we would very much like to see or have if at all possible.

Not sure, haven't heard either way about that in particular.

I am sure that there will be a ton of people taking photos...(professional ones or not).

I am sure between tasks, we'll be able to pose for a few.

Unless there's a drastic change for the better with my grandfather's health, it looks like I will not be attending this year. Really wish I could since I have missed out on so many other events this year but it can't be helped. Hope everyone has a wonderful time this year and I will be back on the road again eventually.

Great seeing some folks from here at Blackbeard. I appologize if we didnt see everyone, holy cow, were we busy.

Also have to appologize to the Camp Mom for not making the Sat Nite sing, which I really did want to go and record. We were waylaid by Crudbeard and..... rum.

Hope all got home safe and that you had a good time!
