just joined! (waves)
i am kirsten Dystel, mka as kirsten houseknecht, and better known as Fabric Dragon the merchant.
two things of note:
at Bhakail Yule in Philadelphia, i was yet again helped by a volunteer. this happens so often that i fear we merchants often forget to get things like names.... i am helped frequently, by many people, old and young, including many people whose names and LJ handles i should recall and never do.. sigh
Dr_zrfq for instance, and his relations...
and many other people's children...
at this event, i was assisted by a gentle who told me his name the LAST time he helped me load, but i have forgotten.. he is tall, dark, and very good looking, and he loaded boxes, hauled carts, and helped us in many ways (my husband's back and my knees are incredibly grateful). If anyone knows who this was..... please pass along my thanks once again.
in addition, the Baroness was kind enough to allow me the privilege of taking some of the chocolate coins to a young woman and her mother. the young lady in question having BADLY broken her leg but a few weeks before, was lying down when the court ended and the procession left throwing coins......
i witnessed many people at Bhakail Yule helping this young lady at the first event she has been able to attend since she broke her leg... and they all , nameless though they may be to me, deserve thanks.
and a question?
if anyone has one of those walkers with a seat? the young lady could most certainly use it.. and if you are not using yours you should consider getting in touch with them
