It was "Men in Kilts" weekend at the Bonner Springs, KS, Renaissance Faire. The day was cloudy, breezy and cool, so DJ lent Vicki and me each a cape. As we were all in vaguely 16th century garb, the capes worked very well. It was a really good day to go to the Faire.

The food was excellent. Vicki had the veggie wrap for lunch to allow her to have the strawberries and whipped cream. As the fruit was served on top of funnel cake, I became the enabler; I ate most of the funnel cake so she didn't have to overeat. For some reason, I kept calling it "flannel cake," so my sister decided it was red plaid.


The word of the day for October 5, 2009 is "scrumptious".

Our quote for the day is from Sinclair Lewis (1885–1951). Babbitt. 1922:
Babbit: “Honest I did. Well, well, come on—now we’re friends—what’s the darling little name?”
Ida: “Ida Putiak. It ain’t so much-a-much of a name. I
always say to Ma, I say, ‘Ma, why didn’t you name me Doloress or something with some class to it?’”
Babbit: “Well, now, I think it’s a scrumptious name. Ida!”



  1. What a fun day you sure had. Thank you for sharing the lovely photographs..
    Love Sybil xx

  2. My husband and his brother wear kilts various places. One of the local pubs has 'kilt night', the last Saturday of the month. The deal is if you wear a kilt you get a free Guinness. They refused to give a free Guinness to the kilt his glasses wear to keep cool...a cup warmer/cooler, whatever. Unfair I say!
    Does look like a whole bunch of fun.

  3. Looks like an enchanting time was had by all! (Hugs)Indigo
