My fascination with knights has been with me since I was a young man. In Fables and in fact. King Arthur and his court, The three musketeers, The Crusades and their misled march across europe and some knights to controversial to mention here.

Yet many of us, for some reason refuse to accept, acknowledge or embrace the fact that Los Espanoles (The Spanish) are also a part of who we are. That blood flows thru us also. Yes they were invaders to a world that they knew nothing about, Yes they had no business there but there presence cannot be disputed though there motives were less than savory.

Swords, tunics, helmets adorned this amazing place along with books, drawings and of all things a Knights registry dating back to medieval times. Thats where I found this! I stared at it for a long time, trying to make sense of what I was looking at. I smiled asked if they had one available to take with me, which they did, and out of there I walked.
