Today is my birthday. I am 54 years old. I am heading to sabre tonight, as I celebrated my birthday on Sunday with my family. Even though I am not pursuing sabre at this time, perhaps I can help out at drills....get some foot work in....and perhaps Kathy and I may get there early enough to do some epee.
I have been fencing for about two years and five months. Lets call it two and a half years. In that two and a half years I have learned a great deal. Some of it is learned and not able to be applied at this point, however. It is my hope that I can fence competitively (maintain or improve my physical condition) so that I can fence in open tournaments for another two and a half years. I will take a look at how things are going down the road.
Editors Note: Cam was sweet enough to pick me up a cake and a pirate present. Henri bought me a cool pirate card and a book, which I am almost finished reading. I was truly moved that these people thought about me. Cam even hugged me when I was sweaty. My wife and daughters will not even do that. Henri wisely stepped back and blew me a kiss.
