Very much missing the Society for Creative Anachronism's Annual Gulf Wars this second week of March. Dancing Pig had been there for ~8 years in a row, I'd been there for the past 7 and @Apprentice Panda & I refer to it as our anniversary, because she and I bonded on our first trip to Gulf Wars 4 years ago.

The reasons we couldn't go this year are many and complicated, but boiled down to not having enough money for gas, not having reliable transportation for the 1100 mile drive (each direction) and not having enough pots because I've been working 40+ hours a week at my winter town job.

But we're going to do our damndest to be back in Mississippi next year, welcoming spring & celebrating our 5th anniversary. In the meantime, all y'all who did manage to make it to the friendliest war of all (really, it is a War With No Enemies) please be sure to pet the dogs, pinch the baker, enjoy the food, drink & friends & have all the fun you can stand, cause they'll surely make more.

Now I'm heading back to the studio to make more pots, because Spoutwood Farm's Fairie Festival is just around the corner....
