We said our sad good byes ...

To everyone - even the rooster. Then we safely made our way back home
yesterday. We can't wait to get back out ... Until then ...

We Retreated To The Fort

Just in time to buy our raffle tickets for a hand carved walking
stick. We didn't win but enjoyed what we could before the sky fell
out. As it turned out we only worked the morning shift yesterday. Then
it rained all afternoon cutting the festival short. Even with the low
attendance we hear more money was donated than last years event. Today
we head home. We will be idle until sometime in May.

We got kicked out ...

Of school prior to the bell even ringing. Wouldn't be the first time.
Hmmmm! They had to relocate us due to being short on volunteers this
year. So we went to check on the chickens in the coop located just
behind our trailer. Looks like there are young roosters now .... At
least this year they aren't crowing all night. Then they separated us.
Tim was sent to the Partin house and I spent the day in the gift shop
working. Since I am volunteering I guess you would consider me 'in
the hole' because I was also shopping while I was working. Oh well it
all goes to a good cause. Let's hope the rain doesn't keep people from
coming out today.

Back to School

This morning Tim & I are volunteering in the Old Union School House.
It was in use from 1906 to 1969. This is a really neat building with
an interesting local history. This afternoon we will be at the Partin
House working. It was built in 1953. There are other houses here from
the 1870's. They've just started up the Bluegrass music. It's going to
be a great day.

Spring is here!

We head out this morning with the Airstream to go work/volunteer for the Historic Society at Ft. Christmas. We will be camping in a softball field and will have 800 pounds of pork to pull tomorrow. The event, a Bluegrass festival, will run through this weekend. This will be our third year helping out with this event and know it will be just as much fun as in years past.

Yesterday we said our sad good byes to everyone. Then packed for the ride home. After the all the rain we had on Saturday it turned out to be a dirty messy packing job. Today begins the clean-up from the trip. I will leave you with a few other pictures from this expedition.
