And so, back 2 Monday!

We welcome you once more, Mortals, to another Monday in the trenches here at the ol' Diary of Magecraft. 'Tis Monday, 24th August, 2008 Mortal-reckoning --- and I am just now recovering from a rather punishing adventure at the 48th Clan MacDuff Long Island Scottish Games @ Old Westbury Gardens. With the Labor Day Weekend well coming at us like a meteor shower, the scene now shifteth to Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, where the United States Open Lawn Tennis Championships, to give the damn thing its proper full name, reareth its ugly mug. If I know the twits over at CBS Sports, Jim Nantz and friends are standing by, ready to bring you the thrill of every match that dares to whet your whistle.

From the Open, the scene will shortly shift to Vegas, where, for the second straight year, the Grand Ballroom at the South Point Hotel-Casino will host the Jerry Lewis MDA Labor Day Telethon. Of course, your Dragonmaster encourages me colleagues in the Renaissance Faire, Gaming, and Sci-Fi/Fantasy Communities to support this legendary telecast. Alas, I don't think that Jerry or Ed McMahon will show up this year. Both men, I would wot, are pretty much crotchety old farts now (then again, frankly, so am I, in one sense!), and as such, might not necessarily have the stamina to do a full 21 1/2 hours of live TV.

Other than those items of note, like most o' me scurvy shipmates, I be merely coolin' me Wizardly jets until International Talk Like a Pirate Day; I've already informed the good Captain Slappy that has been named my Bonus Weblink of the Month for September (and besides, I'm in mood this month to walk ye proverbial plank!), and afterwards, of course, the Medieval Festival @ Fort Tryon Park.

Well, Mortals, I think at this juncture I've sufficiently bored you to death. Now I'm off to see what adventures I can stumble into unexpectedly next......

As ever,

Master Blackwolf
