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!
I'm a big fan of my home state of Minnesota, especially because all of my kids and grandkids live here. I'm retired but keep busy with puttering, volunteering and writer's groups. I have three well-loved kitties who keep me smiling. I am surrounded by trees and wildlife even though I live within a few miles (as the crow flies) of the state capitol building in downtown St Paul. This keeps me quite contented.
