Blow the dust away...
« on: September 13, 2015, 12:38:22 AM »
*Stumbles into the once lively stone cottage/pub (see Housewarming Party thread), and shakes her head at the amount of dust that has gathered on the tables and benches, and in every nook and cranny. Listens to the scampering of tiny feet as various small critters scatter in fear from the now unfamiliar human presence in this long-forgotten place.*

Much time has surely passed since we have set foot in these halls. I think I'll brush the dust from a bench in the corner, have a seat, and reminisce for a bit. Perhaps one or two old friends will see the light in the window and drop by for a visit.

*Stretches and yawns, then begins sneezing profusely...*

Oh my! I must have fallen asleep waiting for the others to arrive. I wonder what day it is? Or, perhaps more appropriately, judging by the layer of dust now settled upon my lap, what *year* it is? Well, I suppose I should get up and see if I can get the fire going again, open the doors and windows and sweep out these old cobwebs...perhaps go fetch a few pails of water from the creek and see if I can clean some of these tables so they'll be suitable for the feast that is sure to come when everyone finally finds their way here. So much to do!

*Wanders off in search of the broom, whistling a merry tune*

I went to the very first Ren Faire in Pittsburgh...it must've been 1985 or 86, when it was held down in Oakland, in Schenley Park...at the base of "The Hill" if I remember correctly.

God...now i feel old.... :(
