Our contract usually says "pirate Chaos" so if that's an indicator... ;D
Temper; what makes a good sword, be sure to keep it.

I don't know what you've heard, none of it is factual, but it's all true.

Well it is sort of a given that if I am breathing, above the ground, and no one is shoveling dirt in my face that We will be there, as well as our companions Sir Donaldo and Lady Dierdre.

I just noticed this.  It would seem that the last few posts in this thread were put in the wrong place.   This thread is for MOBILE and the last few posts were regarding PENSACOLA.   Oh Well.........

Ok.. It may not be your fault, but I doubt you'll be at Pensacola since it's already happened... ;)  LOL.  So I'm guessing we'll see you in Mobile in November...

Hello,

This is Todd "Diablo" Kirby of the Gypsy Band, Labyrinthe. I hope this E-mail finds everyone well. We miss you guys terribly. Whenever we get this group of ours rebuilt (For the 18th time. lol.) we will once again darken the courts with our song and dance. It's a good thing that our lovely Luri has won favor with the King. It's hard to play and dance when ones head is rolling in the gutter. We so hope to see you all very soon.

Now.... This message is concerning a friend here in Nashville, TN. His name is David Plieth, Anyone at Tennessee, Michigan, Gulf Coast or Mobile Faires has probably seen him taking pictures.

Dave works in research at Vanderbilt in Nashville. (He's one of the many people over there working on a cure for Cancer.) Well, Dave presently needs alot of prayer and good thoughts sent his way.

Three weeks ago today (Ironically on April 1st.) Dave went into the hospital for full body numbness, slurred speech and blurred vision. I went by his house in the morning before work and heard him calling my name. I went in and found him in his bedroom where he indicated he needed me to dial 911. He couldn't even dial the phone. The paramedics came in, carted him out and took him to the Vanderbilt ER. By that afternoon he was on a breathing tube and in the Neurology Intensive Care Unit where's he's been ever since.

He is being diagnosed as having a very rare disorder called "Bickerstaff Syndrome", also known as "Bickerstaff's brainstem encephalitis". It is very very similar to Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Bickerstaff Syndrome is an immune disorder. He apparently had pneumonia and instead of attacking the problem, his body attacked his brain stem.

Luckily there is NO brain damage and Dave is expected to make a 90 / 100 % recovery but it's going to take time. There's talk of him being in the hospital for 6 months before he can even go home and that this may take him a year to deal with. There will be alot of physical therapy and possibly speech therapy. Still, the scenario is a positive one. On that morning I thought he'd had a Stroke.... Thank goodness it wasn't that.

Here's some info on Bickerstaff Syndrome:
http://www.patient.co.uk/showdoc/40001209/

Here's some info on Guillain-Barre Syndrome:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guillain-Barr%C3%A9_syndrome

His Brother and Sister-in-law came down from Detroit and have been here taking care of him and his finances, etc. His father was here as well but tragically had a massive stroke and died in the ICU while visiting Dave.... This is hard to believe I know but this happened Wed. April 15th. Everyone except Dave got to attend his Fathers funeral.

Then, in the early AM hours of 4-23, Dave had to have emergency surgery as the food tube they had running into his stomach came undone and dripped "food" into his abdomen. This was apparently going on for a day, maybe two so they had to go in and clean all that out and replace the food tube. Now, they've got him doped and tubed up again.

He had been looking forward to the Tennessee Renaissance Festival in May. Obviously, he won't be able to make it this year and I know that's driving him absolutely crazy. (He goes out there every day of Faire from start to finish.) Hopefully next year he will be able to attend. I was thinking that, this year it'd be nice to bring elements of the Faire to him.... I'm gonna be at TN Ren on the first day and try to get a bunch of performers, etc. to take pictures and sign a piece of posterboard or something. I think that would make his month. Please do keep Dave in your thoughts and prayers. If you know him, E-mail me at X_Todd_Kirby_X@Yahoo.com and we can talk more.

If you want to send cards, please send to: Dave Plieth, 3120 Kinross Ave. Nashville, TN. 37211 (His brother and myself will make sure he gets them.)

Todd "Diablo" Kirby.

This definitely is for the Mobile faire.   There has been a change of venue.  We will NOT be at the faire grounds, we will be at the Hank Aaron Stadium which is just a bit further down I-65 just before the split-off of I-10. So make sure you note that and do not go to the old site.
