Hi and welcome to my profile! Glad you could make it. If you want to know the rundown, just read the below paragraph. If you want to know a bit more, keep reading. Want to know a lot more, send me a message. Want to know everything, you'll have to come meet me for real...
I live in Texas. I am the second oldest of 6 kids. I was homeschooled until '08 when I graduated. I work for my dad moslty. I enjoy making things with metal, playing music, going to reenactments, Hunting, and spending time with friends.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdon; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. - Colossians 3:14
I work for my dad who owns a well reapair service. We mostly repair old windmills that supply the livestock around our area with water. We also fix/replace house electric pumps and install/repair solar pumps. Its interesting work and I like doing it. I really like climbing the windmill towers ;)
I like to make chainmaille. Originally it was designed as armor during the Medieval ages. Nowadays some people (like me) make Jewelry as well as armor. If you want to know more about how to make it read my HSA blog. I sell the Jewelry that I make to pay for the supplies, so if all goes well I usually get to make my chainmaille at no expense to me. I also have become interested in Blacksmithing, I have just gotton started with that and am not very good yet....
Okay, I have been playing the Fiddle for over twelve years now and feel that I at least know something about it. I took piano for a while, but haven't pursued it like the fddle. I am also working on Guitar and Madolin as well though, Im not that great yet... If you play music, I'd love to hear from you:) I usually like to play fast songs and with other people that also like music as much as I do. Jamming is probably my favoraite way to play. I like to play Western Swing, Bluegrass, and "Contest Fiddle" and its what I know the most of.
My family does States' War (civil war) reenacing and are joined up with the 7th TX Cav. In the battles we go dismounted (on foot) and do most of the shooting for the South:) Our group is probably known for always being ready for a fight, great dancing abilities and making jokes about everything in sight. We are absolutly the most deadly force of troops there has ever been in Texas since the Alamo. JK :) actually we just try to do our part and try not to get too much attention or get into any parades if at all possible. As far as the rest is concerned, I like the camping, the eating, and of course; the dancing.
I and my brothers are co-founders of an airsoft group located in the Texas Panhandle. We belive in full auto weapons and teamwork to overcome the enemy. We identify ourselves by wearing a :) on the left shoulder of our battle jackets. We also wear WWII helmets and Vietnam style cammo. If you live in our area give me a shout and we'll see if we can get you in our group.
If you have any questions, comments, advice, wisdom, stratigies, quotes, jokes, useful info, or brainey ideas, feel free to share! :)

And we are buying( well pre-ordering) RUSE posiblely the coolest RTS WWII game I've ever seen( we're getting it for 360) it looks sweet, and you can't go wrong with WWII.
We need a WAR!!! PAIN!!! and airsoft. Mostly Airsoft.
Wow, it sounds like you have been really busy! I knew you mowed the highways at one time, but I forgot. That's quite a job! Is it your family's buisiness?
We've been very busy as well! The farm is now in full swing, as well as the milk production. ( I handmilk, btw) So, from our one cow we are getting about...mm, say 4 gallons a day. Going from no milking to handmilking 1-2 hours a day had it's effect however - messed up my hands something awful. Hopefully I can keep on milking however!
Why, thank you! I don't usually look that fierce... Um, well... I'm decended from the Scotch/Irish, but I find the culture and music of both nations very interesting as well. Do you play any Irish music on the fiddle?
About 3 weeks ago, I went to a HSA reunion in Ohio, and while there, learned English Country dancing. ( 1800's type ) It was wonderful getting to actually meet other HSAers! Anyway, they taught me some of the dances, and we ended up dancing about 16 hours that weekend. I lost weight there as well...wonder why?
Wow, I've talked your ear off. Have you done any Blacksmithing lately?
