Just got the word - our event this weekend is STILL on, even though the Weather Forecast looks pretty dismal. (Rain and 60 Degree Temps. Brr! Get chills just thinking about it!)
Hopefully the rain will hold off long enough that we can our gear/camps get set up BEFORE the rain hits on Friday. (Fingers Crossed!!)
Send some warm & dry thoughts my way, won't ya? (Weekend's challenge: stay healthy / don't get sick! :)
Guess I better get cracking on those food items as I'll definitely need them this weekend!!

Subject: Moorpark Reenactment Update
My fellow reenactors,
The Rotary has decided to go forward with the event this weekend. Yes, the weather report is not promising, and everyone is well aware of that, but the problem is that critical personnel on the Rotary's side will be missing the following weekend, so come what may, the event will take place as scheduled.
The good news is that rainfall in Moorpark always seems to be different than what LA gets. Last weekend, the rainfall was 3/4 inch in LA, but only a third of an inch in Moorpark. The ground at the site is very good at wicking up rain, so the Rotary is optimistic that the problems with the weather will be minimized. Currently, no rain is expected at all until very late Friday night, so this should aid setup. Even then, who really knows at this point with weather predictions just what will happen and when? I understand that Sunday is supposed to be clear.
So, now it's on to Moorpark. C'mon out and join us for the weekend.

My friend Heather (@Casketgirl) recently had her baby boy...2 weeks early!! Mom is doing pretty well & is home from the hospital, but baby Duncan is still hanging out in NICU trying to recover from some mystery infection. Boo!! :(
So, to help keep everyone's spirits up, they've decided to ask for Photos Welcoming Duncan Home - and thus was born the "Welcome Home Duncan" Project!
Your task, should you choose to accept it (and I sincerly hope you WILL), is to take a photo of yourself* with a "Welcome Home Duncan" sign and send it in to Heather/Casketgirl.
*Or a picture of any of the following (with a Welcome Home sign): Children, Co-Workers, Pets, Garden Gnome(s), Action Figures, etc. . ;-) Be Creative! :)
Email your Pics to "firstname.lastname@example.org" with the subject "Welcome Home Duncan".
Our newborn son is hanging out in NICU trying to recover from a mystery infection. To keep our spirit's up we've asked friends and family to share some photos welcoming him home.

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
Gunpowder treason and plot.
We see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
To blow up king and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below
To prove old England's overthrow.
By god's mercy he was catch'd
With a darkened lantern and burning match.
So, holler boys, holler boys, Let the bells ring.
Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.
And what shall we do with him?
