My Dearest Kendrah,
I am relieved to hear that I will have fun when I take our trip to Henneth Annun. I am looking forward to it even more now. If I got a lot of tapestry work done, it must mean that I will have enough silk thread, which means our trade agreements with the Easterlings are working out! How exciting! Trade negotiations are always so complex, as we learned from Star Wars episodes 1 and 2. We also learned that trade negotiations are not very interesting so I will move on...
A reception, huh? Legolas had better be careful about the rumors he spreads. Tick off enough elves, the next thing you know, kin-slaying ensues.
Last weekend I went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. I bought a new spindle (very domestic of me...in a Gondorian house-wifey way) and scouted some sheep. I found several breeds that I think could be introduced into into ME without too much of a problem. My favorite was the Soay, a hair sheep and one of the oldest breeds in the world. Very cute. I also enjoyed the Icelandic sheep...very big with long wool. I think they would be quite picturesque wandering the swards and posing for the Noldor tourists. I considered purchasing a few, but the veternarian looked at me funny when I asked what medical clearance I would need to export them out of reality, so I backed off. I got cards from some breeders though, so I'm still thinking about it. I should have Faramir do an environmental impact study first though...don't want to do anything to imbalance the ecosystem...
Well, I must be off. Hope all is well!
Your Affectionate Friend,
