dress wasn't really all that uncomfortable for how warm it was that day
(I'm not sure what the fabric makeup of the gown is); mostly I got weary
from the sun beating down on my dark head all day. I have two medical
conditions, separate but equally annoying, and they like to gang up on

Neat devices! I'm learning to "speak" blazon; so far I've learned the
words for all the relevant colors. :) Plunder (who is a registered
herald) has submitted my heraldic device for me, so I'm waiting for that
to get cleared. My husband hasn't designed one yet, but if mine is
accepted as it is, it will be "Azure, a seme of crosses fleury Or, a dove
rising to chief sinister Argent." In plain language, a white dove on a
blue field patterned with gold crosses. I watched the distribution of
arms at the crown tourney's closing court, and I thought the scrolls with
the filled escutcheons were much nicer than those with blank escutcheons,
so when my time comes I want my device ready for the scroll. ;) Kevin
(my husband) will probably do something in red and gold, possibly with a
Argh. Back to work. Have a lovely day everyone.
