I have been involved in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) for over 20 years, mostly as a herald. Last seven years I have been working at the International level, and that has led to a lot of friends around the world. I have been given many awards and titles within the Society, with the latest being Baroness of the Court.
I like to travel to events around my Kingdom (Artemisia - Montana, southern Idaho, western Wyoming, western Colorado and Utah) as well as the rest of the US, but my health has not been the best lately and my mobility is restricted.
I am a disabled veteran and the VA has finally authorized surgery to replace my knees - after 20 years! The surgeries went well, back in 2007 and 2008, but my mobility is still not wonderful. Ended up with 70% disability rating from the VA, so am managing on that for the most part.
I live in a small house in Billings, Montana, with my two cats. Not a very exciting life, I am afraid. But it is mine - and I do have a lot of friends here and in the area who make sure that I stay busy and keep my life from being dull and boring!
