Fencing!

Last night I finally made it to fencing practice.

Goodness! I had not been practicing since Pennsic so I thought I would get my ass handed back to me.

Not so, I actually did better than I expected, although I know that I still need to shake some more of the rust out of my game. My last fight with Fleury was particularly fun and I loved every second of it.

On the other hand, I am now the proud owner of 20 yards of really kickass wool, and I got to travel last week. Not a bad tradeoff all in all.

Fortunately, Fall season is coming up, and I will be really happy to fence in kinder, gentler weather. Hopefully weather that won't make me drop like a rock from heat exhaustion.

Here's to cold season.
