It was a lovely fall day in the peaceable kingdom. I enjoyed my time at Wilderstead. I could use some help on some of this stuff, though.

Gall had a bear pestering him, so he preached to it and converted it, after which it carried the logs for his cabin he was building.

St. Gall is one of my Patrons of Wilderstead.
