Days of Knights

Dwain and I went to Days of Knights today.  It was AWESOME!  We learned a lot and had fun.  

We talked to a lot of the participants.  The fellow I found most interesting to talk to was retired from the US Army.  He'd spent twenty years in Germany and his off time with a metal detector along old "disappeared" roads.  I'd never seen such a nice collection of old spurs, horse shoes, axe heads, knives, keys, and you name it.  Amazing.

We enjoyed the jousting and seeing the knights in armor.  We really liked the trebuchet.  

It was a fun day.

A nice collection of helmets.

This was a green young horse and the knight had his hands full with him.  They did a credible job in the jousting contests, though.

They were flinging pumpkins with this.

I would not want to try digging a terrier out with a spade like this.
