The last of the Black Knights

(father and son)
Many things happened in this period of silence. The most important is that the Black Knight is grandpa, the last of the Black Army was born on nov. 24th, his name is Leonardo. Now in the Black Knight kingdom there are celebrations and days of happiness. The proud grandpa gave him his first rugby ball because he must become a flanker in the local team before the definitive glory!
On nov. 28th a medical equipe, by a surgery 2 hours long, removed all the iron inside the Black Knight's leg. Everything went well but I have a little of pain again and I am terribly weak: days and days of fever and tons of antibiotics are the reason. A scar of 25 cm. is the memory of this ultimate adventure.
My dear friends enjoy this Christmas time and best wishes to all of you.
The Black Knight is back, the bionic period is in the past now!

  5. Leonardo is destined to be king.

    And I'm so glad you are able to get through airport security again without bringing in the army.

  7. Reinforcements, finally! Just in time for the beginning of the offensive the new general in the heartland is about to launch that will drive out the reactionry forces that have besmirched the land for so long and now are helpless before the forces their short-sighted and rapacious policies have created.

    It is good to see the BK is now whole on the other side of the battleground too. Our strength increases daily in relation to the justice of our cause.
