Roadrunner Knight

roadrunner knight I credit Narnia with my son Freddy’s sudden awakening to all things medieval, armored, and sword-wielding. Ever since he got his first look at Sir Peter Wolfbane, the knight obsession has spread: Playmobil knights, Spenser’s Faerie Queene, books on fencing, etc. Susan and I let him know that, according to the book 100 Things You Need To Know About Knights, a knight-in-training spends a lot of time studying manners and social graces.

Today’s offering: The Road Runner, armed and ready for his next encounter with the Coyote.
