my funny stories

Despite all internal warnings, I have started a blog. Eventually, I'm going to put in more of the fun facts I dig up in my research but can't use, and interesting discoveries that come from re-enacting the renaissance. But to start with, I'm just going to write up funny stories and jokes.

So -- first joke is 'Randy the Rooster'. You can read it at http://emilylcotton.com

Enjoying them MLE and looking forward to the next installment. We are set to get some chickens next spring, so I'm reading with extra interest!!!

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Thanks, ladies! The next couple posts are up. It'll take about two more to finish this particular anecdote, if I'm shooting for under 500 words per post, as recommended by the powers of blogdom.

I am really climbing the learning curve with this. Must edit the darn background photo, that pointy thing on the castle wall interferes with the text!
