Yes, it is almost here, and the eggcitement has been building all month long. The Faire will be even more fun than those silly things our parronts go to!

Date: Saturday, June 27th
Place: Milonga page #165848
Time: 8PM EDT; 7PM CDT; 6PM MDT; 5PM PDT; 2PM HI

Well, the voting has been hot and heavy for the past week, and the Picture Contest could not be any closer. Right now there are so many ties and one or two vote differences in the various categories that even I have no idea who our winners will be. I can guarantee that the announcements will be eggciting, so you won't want to miss them. That means you should be at the Faire 30 minutes after it starts, because that is when the awards ceremony will begin.

Now as to the food, Lizzie is keeping it a big secret. However the wonderful aromas that are already drifting out of the Dragon Cave make my beak water. I am making it a point not to eat at all on Saturday to make room for all of her delicious food.

The TPB&G will be setting up the usual drinks along with ale, mead and something else that looks very peculiar, but Ms BB swears is authentic (something about Vikings???). Not sure I want to try it, but I am sure some brave soul will have more courage than this Sennie.

There will be sword fights and maybe even some jousting if we can convince our derby horses that it is OK to run at each other instead of around a track. I have to admit that isn't going very well so far.

Finally we will all enjoy Sam and the Scruffy Birds Band's tunes. I don't know that they will be doing too many Renaissance tunes, since they are not the best to dance to, although there are always country dances done in a ring. We will just have to see what they come up with.

All in all it will be a wonderful trip into the past to the time when knighthood was in flower, and all ladies (or wenches) were beautiful.

  Thanks Willie, Lady Falco, & Peppino!
And thank you Lady Chyna! That poem, Mom remembers it because they were learning about "ballads". Mom would've really loved it more had she heard the version she came across this week. The singer's name is Loreena McKennitt and she specializes in songs from that period of time. Some weren't songs but poems that she orchestrated music to them. Mom was fascinated learning about how music started!! And also, dance!!

She is surprised to see that some of it is gone. The rest of the food is pretty well gone--no surprise to her.

Ah, it will be good to get back to the Dragon Cave, won't it, Kaji? We can relax with Kiddo and SweetPepper. I am ready to call this a very successful Milonga!

Hope you are feeling better! Your mom should check around more about the beak. We have heard of beaks needing to be cut but not putting the bird to sleep. Lima's beak has to be cut back but what is interesting is her mate, Limon, bites it back for her and he does a perfect job!

  Well, We Were Just Enlightened To Renaissance...
....Music. Almost every bit of it is about love & death. There must be some other songs that aren't about love & death but we certainly didn't come across any while we were learning. I'm sorry if we brought any birdy down because of the music. (Sorry, Mr. Kiddo)

  I'm Sorry About "The Highwayman" Poem
...being cut off. I have the rest of it sitting here so I mind as well finish it (we didn't know it cut it off...rats!)

Till, now, on the stroke of midnight,
Cold, on the stroke of midnight,
The tip of one finger touched it!
The trigger at least was hers!

Tlot-tlot! Had they heard it? The horse-hoofs were ringing clear
Tlot-tlot, in the distance!
Were they deaf that they did not hear?
Down the ribbon of moonlight, over the brow of the hill
The highwayman came riding,
Riding, riding!
The red-coats looked to their priming!She stood up straight and still!

Tlot, in the frosty silence! Tlot, in the echoing night!
Nearer he came and nearer! Her face was like a light!
Her eyes grew wide for a moment!
She drew one last deep breath,
Then her finger moved in the moonlight,
Her musket shattered the moolight,
Shattered her breast in the moonlight and warned him with her death!

He turned; he spurred to the west; he did not know she stood
Bowed, with her head o'er the musket, drenched with her
Own red blood! Not till the dawn he heard it; his face grew grey to hear
How bess, the landlord's daughter,
The landlord's black-eyed daughter,
Had watched for her love in the moonlight, and died in the darkness
there

Back,he spurred like a madman, shrieking a curse to the sky
With the white road smoking behind him and his rapier
Brandished high! - blood-red were the spurs I' the golden noon;
Wine-red was his velvet coat,
When they shot him down on the highway,
Down like a dog on the highway,
And he lay in his blood on the highway, with the bunch of lace at his
throat.

Still of a winter's night, they say, when the wind is in the trees,
When the moon is a ghostly galleon, tossed upon the cloudy seas,
When the road is a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor
A highwayman comes riding,
Riding, riding,
A highwayman comes riding, up to the old inn-door.

Over the cobbles he clatters and clangs in the dark inn-yard;
And he taps with his whip on the shutters, but all is locked and barred;
He whistles a tune to the window, and who should be waiting there
But the landlord’s black-eyed daughter,
Bess, the landlord’s daughter,
Plaiting a dark-red love-knot into her long black hair.
(thanks to poet/lyrics writer Alfred Noyer, Music composer C. Armstrong Gibbs 1933,
Singer of tonight’s version Loreena McKennitt)

They don't put the raptors under, they trim hawk and owl beaks without sedation. One person holds the bird and the other trims. Bree did mine while mom held me in a towel. It seems he could trim yours without too much trouble if he has an assistant to hold you.

The English Ladye And The Knight

It was an English ladye bright,
(The sun shines fair on Carlisle wall,)
And she would marry a Scottish knight,
For Love will still be lord of all.

Blithely they saw the rising sun
When he shone fair on Carlisle wall;
But they were sad ere day was done,
Though Love was still the lord of all.

Her sire gave brooch and jewel fine,
Where the sun shines fair on Carlisle wall;
Her brother gave but a flask of wine,
For ire that Love was lord of all.

For she had lands both meadow and lea,
Where the sun shines fair on Carlisle wall,
For he swore her death, ere he would see
A Scottish knight the lord of all.

That wine she had not tasted well
(The sun shines fair on Carlisle wall)
When dead, in her true love's arms, she fell,
For Love was still the lord of all!

He pierced her brother to the heart,
Where the sun shines fair on Carlisle wall €“
So perish all would true love part
That Love may still be lord of all!

And then he took the cross divine,
Where the sun shines fair on Carlisle wall,
And died for her sake in Palestine;
So Love was still the lord of all.

Now all ye lovers, that faithful prove,
(The sun shines fair on Carlisle wall)
Pray for their souls who died for love,
(thanks to Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) &
singer/music composer: Loreena McKennitt)

They do beak trims on the raptors occasionally, and last time Bree was here, she trimmed my upper beak a little. It's not painful, and it did help.
The Highwayman was a poem that mom learned in eighth grade, and she still remembers bits and pieces of it.

  The Knights 'Tiel get up on
stage and Silver begins to strum his guitar while Pearl begins to sing a song called 'Fool's Gold'.

Somewhere in a market square
The cobblestones still shine
Glassy eyes behold the sight
Through another cup of wine...
The one eyed jester skips and turns
As he makes his way through the crowd
While the tavern's royalty try not to laugh aloud...
The jester does another spin
And then falls to the floor
A show of hands, a short "Hurrah!"
A plea for him to do more...
The ease of laughter comes so fast when you're not in
A jester's shoes
Cause when you've only Fool's Gold, you've got nothing more to lose...
Who holds the riches
The jester or the king?
A fortress made from Fool's Gold
Or the tears that treasure can bring?
The king he sits upon his throne
The worlds weight on his chest
When your mind begins to race you've got no time to rest
"Where is my clown?
I need him now, to take my troubles away..."
The harlequin rushes in as his work begins for the day...
While somewhere in a market square
The cobblestones still shine...

Songwriters: Ritchie Blackmore & Candice Night
