Paper, Strings and Sculpey Things

Put my son in a room full of paper, markers, tape, strings and sculpey and he would be in HEAVEN!! This is what he would do all day & all night long if he didn't have to stop to eat and sleep.

Lord Farquad Here and There

When my brother was serving in the Navy, he and his roommate bought a knight, named him Lord Farquad and had him standing guard outside their apartment. It was stolen. They found it later a few miles away hanging from a tree. They untied him and brought him back to their place only to have it stolen again for good.

After my brother finished his service in the Navy he settled down and got married. One day my brother was shopping with his in-laws at Hobby Lobby. There, he saw his long-lost Lord Farquad. Excitedly, he told his in-laws all about the knight he used to have and how this one looked just like it. His in-laws surprised him and bought him this one for Christmas.
When I stayed at my brother's house in Texas this knight stood at the foot of the bed. (Kinda spooky in the dark.) It made me laugh because it reminded me of the knight my kids have at their school. Only slightly different, it's Lord Farquad 2!!! :)
