“well, i didn’t vote for you.” – peasant to king arthur (monty python and the holy grail)


an adventurous visit to the michigan renaissance festival

way back when

in days of yore

i took my daughters

to this very shire

 all of us dressed up

now my grandsons

have picked up where we left off

 as brave knights

“look, it’s my duty as a knight to sample as much peril as I can.”

– Sir Galahad (Holy Grail)

people enjoying the day

being whoever they imagine themselves to be

villagers from far and wide are all welcomed here

no matter their dress or look or form

 and what could be better than spying a kilted warrior brave enough to pick up his own hot latte?

“live every day as if it’s a festival. turn your life into a celebration.”

  1. Ah! I love the Renaissance Fair! As the “Queen of England” would parade through I would turn my back (as the Irish Pirate Queen) and tell my husband “she’s not my Queen!” (all in fun and certainly never would have to HRM Queen Elizabeth).

  2. That interaction in the film is hilarious as the peasant completely dismantles Arthur’s reasoning for why he was chosen to lead…” you can’t expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you!”
