Sing Me A Tune

Oh, Merry Minstrel, sing me a tune, 
tell me all of my one true love's boon.
Will he be handsome, gentle and sweet?
With riches and honor, a man of great feat?

Listen, Fair Maiden, and I'll tell you true,
Your true love is here now, right inside you.
Earn your own riches and always be kind,
look nowhere but in you to e'r be defined.


This great outfit Wilmur wears is currently selling at a discounted price at the We <3 Roleplay event. The nice rich gray color is exclusive to this event. It's so very well made, and is complete with boots and an optional cloak. Surely made from cured wild boar skin, it is sturdy enough to hold up against all adventurer worries - from bear to brigand! Wilmur is also wearing Tee*fy's Elizabeth hair, now out at Collabor88's birthday event! It's supposed to be for girls, but Wilmur wears it well as a man from long ago. Wilmur can MAN-UP anything!

The instrument Wilmur is playing is called an Archlute, and I picked it up at Mikki Mile's Modern and Medieval Musical Instruments. I wanted something bard-like, and saw these instruments on Marketplace. It said there were demos in-world, and so I went to check them out. It is an amazing shop, and SO much fun. I spent at least an hour or so just trying all of the instruments. Mikki Mile has everything from fiddles to guitars, harps, lutes, bugles, bagpipes, and so many different types of guitars - both old and new. He even has a couple hurdy gurdies there! 

If you like music, consider stopping by just to try the demos! The demo system lets you really try the instrument out - you can hear all the tunes and sample the great animations that are built inside the instruments. There are even expansion sets for most instruments, allowing you to very easily add songs to your repertoire. I bought quite a few instruments - I just couldn't help myself! Do not be surprised to find Wilmur having a one man bagpipe parade somewhere on the grid soon!

Off for a ride!

What Next has these wonderful wearable bikes available! They come in many different colors in several different styles. I love them! I actually adore riding bikes in SL - when I can find nice pathways. It is hard to find places where rez is on these days, so having a wearable option is just my cup of Long Island Iced Tea! Little Sammy Davis, Jr. Jr. loves his basket seat, too!

Do you like to bike? Where are some nice trails you have found? I am always on the lookout for new places to go off for a ride!


Location: What Next
Bike: What Next - Sonoma - Soft Pink

Dress/Shoes/Glasses: Donna Flora
Hair: Bliss Couture
Hat: Split Pea

The bike is a pelvis attachment, so I attached my dog to my pelvis as well and moved him into position, modding the basket so he would fit!

Flight to Adventure!

It seemed like a normal day. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and the wine was breathing. Wilmur was enjoying his picnic lunch when all of a sudden he heard a voice. It was soft, but urgent.

"Hey you, with the goblet! I beg you, please give me some of that!" Wilmur looked around, but saw no one. He took another sip and he heard the voice again. "I'm so thirsty! Won't you please give me some?"

Hearing strange voices does run in the family.

Wilmur looked around again quickly, starting to become alarmed when he saw no one. He raised his wine glass again to his lips with a shaky hand, and sputtered when some of the drink dribbled from his lips to the rich carpet below.

"Oh, thank you! Thank you!"

The seat below him seemed to shudder and shift, and suddenly he felt himself rising off the ground!

"Hold on tightly now," the voice shrilled happily. "We don't want you to take a tumble!"

Hold on to your hats!

Up, up, up they rose! Higher and higher.

"Where would you like to go first, Master?"

"Are you sure you should be driving? You did just have some wine." Wilmur looked worried.

"Ah, it's ok. I only had a sip. I'm well below limit!"

"Ok then.... the choice is yours, Magic Carpet! Let's stretch your legs and see where we end up!"

Poor old Elder Tree wishes he could go, too.

So, with a whoosh and a wee, Wilmur waved goodbye to Elder Tree and he and his Magic carpet set off on a wonderful adventure that took them to the edges of all known realms and beyond.


This great magic carpet from Boogers is available as a rare prize at the Woodland Gacha going on right now! This event is geared towards the kid community, but there are plenty of cute things children of all sizes and ages can enjoy.
