Brush with the past  
On Friday, I volunteered to go with members from the memory care unit to the State Historical Museum. It actually went very well since two of the attendees are what we refer to as "pleasantly demented" and the rest were wheelchair-bound and largely quiet. The man who met us to give the tour looked familiar, but he was sort of a generic aging-hippie type, so I initially dismissed it. But then we were joined by this little woman in a floral dress that I KNEW I'd met and I just could not place her... until the aging hippie dude called her "my wife, Dale."

*click!*

I waited until a quiet moment on the tour and then told her "I know who you are..." She was Asdis, Jara's first baroness! :D She and I had a little chat about the current State of the Barony and local gossip and such. It was a fun little moment of odd...

That's funny. I met her at the National History Events a few weeks ago. She was judging in the room I was helping to run and I was working on a SCA project and had my little sewing bag with the griffin on it out. Of course she very quickly identified me as a Scadian and she mentioned that she and her husband worked at the Historical Museum.

I've met the two of them around. They do a lot of volunteering and side gigs for WHS. One of them was to do the "Odd Wisconsin" characters. Paul was the Voyager with the Wisconsin Hermit.

What a happy coincidence!
