Investiture

"So what are you doing when you step down as Baroness?"

"I'm going to Disney World!"

Well, not exactly. I am going to Florence at the end of the year, but you get the idea.

I also got to do what I was set to do on the ocassion of our Divestiture: Absolutely nothing.

Yes, boys and girls, after a wonderful Last Court, I had the opportunity to simply don my cool pink hat and just chill in the hall and chat with everyone in sight.

It felt wonderful.

Our Last Court went very well, and the reasdream did an outstanding job as our herald. Our Baronial Bard sang a very touching song, "Six Pearls," as her farewell to us, and soon after we joyfully stepped down.

At the end of the event, we discreetely left site while our successors enjoyed their Investiture day as it should be. Much cheescake was had by all, and it was the perfect end for a perfect day.

It has been a marvelous four years, and we love our Barony.

Ponte Alto is, indeed, the coolest place in the whole Known World.

you are my hero. Hardly anyone can really appreciate what it takes to do two years, to do four is an accomplishment.

It has been a pleasure (most of the time :-) wrangling the two of you for the past four years.

Thank you for the prezzie - it was quite a surprise, espcially as I had been fussing about having it look just right on YOUR neck for court.

I was having a hard time to keep a straight face when you were fussing about that necklace, LOL. I'm glad you liked it.

I was wondering why you were smirking. I thought it was because after 4 years, I was STILL fussing over how you looked for Court ;-)

Congratulations on serving your barony for four awesome years.

However, I must inform you that you are mistaken...Windmasters' Hill is the coolest place in the Knowne World!

Welcome to being landless!

But haven't you heard our marching song?

(sung to Ride of the Valkyries)
We're number eleven,
we're number eleven.
We're twice as good
as number one!


elizabethnmafia punched me in the arm when I sang it to her.

Ponte Alto is cool...
But you guys left some big shoes to fill. Thank you so much for the great generosity and endless encouragement you've shown Flora, myself, and all the rest of the Barony.

I'm chiming in on the congrats for your new "retired" staus (whoo-hoot...you lucky dog)...I hope you get to sleep in on weekends, NOT answer the phone in the evening and skip a meeting or two.

On the topic of great Baronies...Erwin & I are far to modest to brag about DC being the most awesomest Barony...besides, there's no point in belaboring the obvious fact that DC is the coolest. (Grin...my populace MADE me say that)

Ohhhh, it feels grrrrreeeeaaaatttt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And yes, that night I slept like a baby.

Of course, now I shall entertain myself by autocrating Chalice of the Sun God, but who's counting? LOL

Indeed it is a fabulously cool place :)

And congrats on trading absolute power for an utter lack of accountability :) I'm sure you'll find the latter just as much fun as the former :D
