Forgive me my Lords, Ladies, Lads and Lasses. I hope that my summons finds ye in good standing and ye be in good health. I beckon thee Lords, Ladies, Lads and Lasses to come to the Canterbury Renaissance faire, for in just over two fortnights the festivals shall begin. Forthwith the clanging of swords, the beating of shields, and the sounding of hooves shall beckon our audience. Come one come all and enjoy fyne foods and goods at the faire.
