No....sorry, I couldn't do the pirate thing. Not after seeing that movie Pirates of the disneyland. But, that is not the reason that I am writing this. I want to know what everyone is doing. I know that a lot of you are getting ready for next week and the festival....GRRRR I still wish I was going. I had a great Kendo seminar today and I have another seminar I am going to next week. Is anyone interested in learning a bit of kendo? I could always teach a small class. But you would have to buy your own Shinai. So, let me know what your up to.
