When I was a boy I loved all things medieval. I still do.
Growing up, my brother and cousins and I spent nearly a third of every day out in the fields and woods pretending to knights and kings, building forts and booby traps and fashioning sticks and branches into daggers, swords, staves and bows (apple wood and shoe strings did a fine job) and arrows (the arrows came from weeds).
One of my dreams then was to own a falcon and now it seems that dream may be a closer reality as two peregrine falcons have been spotted in Adams County.
Of course, if I should manage to acquire a falcon I would need a horse to properly hunt with the falcon, which would require a stable and a caretaker or two. All of this probably keeps this dream firmly in the land the imagination.
