The tournament begins!

Let’s go back to the beginning of the story.  The Prince is sent off on a mission, but is captured by a bad guy.  A really bad guy.  The prince is taken off as a prisoner.  Let’s hope he doesn’t visit the torture chambers.


While his fair princess worries of his lateness in returning, the King tries to ease her mind by having tournaments. Why men think tournaments are something that eases a woman’s mind, is beyond me.


In between the tournaments, we are served by a peasant.


We get to eat:




and be merry.


Since we are seated in the RED section. We are forced to cheer for the Red Knight. Here he is. Isn’t he so handsome? I kept saying, “Oh, he’s so handsome!” just to embarrass my son. It worked beautifully!


After each event the knights received a flower from the princess. The knights then would give it to a fair maiden in their section.


At the end of the tournaments a very special fair lady, in each section,  got the real prize.  It is handed to her on the end of the lance.

A banner from her knight in shinning armor, claiming his true love for her. 


During the tournament we figure out who the bad guy is. It is the green knight, but we don’t know who the hero of the story is until the end. Guess who it was? That’s right!  MY knight in shinning armor. The Red Knight!


All ended well with the Prince back with his fair Princess and the kingdom is saved. 

I was able to embarrass my son several times by hissing and booing at the Green Knight, or yelling fowl, or hemlock  in your wine.  The son reminded me that was the wrong poison.   It was a fine day to achieve my goal.  All is right with the world. 

Now you need to picture me riding off in the sunset with my knight in shinning armor.

  2. Did you give your banner to Sir Husband? um, no

    Did Sir Husband hoist you onto his valiant steed and take you back to his castle? no

    How much wenching did you learn? A Queen does not wench. Not in public anyway. 😉
