My Dearest Kendrah,
It was wonderful to see you and The Sons this weekend. Aragorn quite enjoyed himself, though he was terribly disappointed that Gregor didn't make it. I guess drinking beer with me just isn't the same. Aragorn was excited at the notion of War Practice in general...never hurts to stay in shapeand alert (he misses orc-slaying so!)He did better than I thought, though he was a bit confused when a well-dressed Tudor women commented that his coat was too "late" for the rest of his ensemble. He's now considering joining up and getting his authorizations to fight. He figures it's better than nothing. I'm not so sure that this is a good idea. I suppose we'll wait and see. He's been looking up SCA info on the internet non-stop for the past few days. Louis from work finally created and installed the filter that will block any references to Liv Tyler, so I decided it was safe.
Faramir would be delighted if you would take over the Environmental Impact Study. He looked kinda blank when I tried to describe what was needed. Budget-wise, we can put you on salary for six months and provide a graduate student assistant. Faramir is working on the contract now...it should arrive in the next few days.
We'd also be thrilled if yor mom would help out with the census and perhaps re-structuring of the the tax system. It seems the princes and other nobles got used to the kingless state of the land and are concerned about where their fiefdoms' taxes are now going and how they will be used. We wouldn't have gotten this far without Faramir, but gets a bit cowed by nobility sometimes, so it might be good to bring in an outside auditor. I'll have Faramir contact her sometime this week to discuss details.
OH! How are classes going?
Your Affectionate Friend,
