Smithlin Dinner

Tonight was the night of the Smithlin gala. It was part one of two, since E is still coding at Google for another week. However, there were medieval place cards...

And a proper English summer pudding.

Christina is off to Glasgow on Labor Day!

Tonight's parlor game: Anglo-Saxon riddles in modern English.  C and D discovered quite a talent for coming up with them.

"Stuffed with salmon, we wrote our riddles, / Fearless of failure or feeling like fools. / Guesses we gave, alliterating always."  I think that passage is recorded in the Exeter Book.

What an UTTER treat! Thank you. Food was delicious, and the company was unparalleled. That A-S game was THE BEST. I can't wait to play that with my new medieval friends in Glasgow. Miss you already xx
