Spent the day escorting Sarah and Margaret there and back again: this time to the Scarborough Faire Renaissance Festival near Waxahachie, south of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. It was a 500-mile round trip, just a quick jaunt by Texas standards.

Sarah and Margaret looked charming in their costumes, including Sarah's elaborate number handmade by Camille. It was a nice facility and a good crowd: many attractive wenches and more than a few actual churls. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and heavy rain eventually caused us to retreat. There was something very authentic about watching knights joust in deep mud.

Oh well, now the girls are well-prepared for the fall Texas Renaissance Festival at (closer) Plantersville. Maybe I will go with my wizard's staff...

Sarah and her posse went to the midnight IMAX show of Stars Wars: Revenge of the Sith and she called it "amazing."

She has studied German extensively. I wonder if she agrees that Yoda must be German?
