A momentary digression

There was a post on The Owl Wood about his photos taken at Medieval Fairs in the Lincolnshire area of England. This reminded me of trips to our Twin Cities area Renaissance Fair held every fall. I haven't been for some years but I have a picture taken at a photo booth there back in 1982 with my parents, my sister and her son, and my son and me (the plump one).

Aren't we a regal -looking bunch? It points out our affection for the British!

About Google + and a major source of confusion. . . one blogger said we bloggers get to keep our format and life goes on as before. A blogger pal who's great with the computer said she surfed and this is true and that only those without blogs who use Google will be affected. Even tho there's nothing on Google + that addresses this, my sensing now is that we're okay as we are and to sit tight. Guess this computer dinosaur got too efficient.

A change in internet providers won't affect your account. Please don't worry about that.

Oh My Goodness !!! My little brother in the background looks SO much like my son !! And, I Love everyone of those faces. The Renaissance Festival was very special.

I often went to the Renaissance Festival in the TC, also, but haven't been for several years. It might be fun to go this fall. What a good reminder. Love the image!

What a lovely photograph. Are you sure you are not related to the Royal Family? It must have been great fun dressing up in those outfits and wearing such serious expressions!

This is great. So authentic. I've been to Renaissance Fairs, but never seen this available. Thanks.

Wow, that is a portrait! I love it! The sort of re-enactors I usually photograph are much, much more lived-in and scruffy than that! You look magnificent.

Thanks for all the lovely feedback folks. It was but a brief moment in time, but fun to revisit.

I LOVE this photo. We did one of those "wild west" photo set-ups a few years back. I was supposed to be the dim-witted outlaw. Sadly, I looked way too much like the dim-witted outlaw. YOU are lovely!
