HAPPY EASTER, EVERYONE!




Thanks to all who participated in UM Weather's 2nd Pancake Day! It was great to get a group together again; so wonderful to meet Big Trucker and Scarlett in person for the first time! And, of course, it's always good to see Hypersport and Damon again!

Who's hungry? (l to r) Lorne, Bobby, Hyper, BT & Damon

History LIVES! at Paynes Creek Historic State Park

Lighting a candle for little Baron, Gamma's new grandson, born several months pre-mature, in hopes that all is going well!

This blog is about the Paynes Creek Historic State Park First Annual Fort Chokonikla Living History Encampment, which is being held on January 12 and 13th. I took lots of photos of the highlights yesterday and will try to get some more today, now that I know what’s going on here. It was lots of fun and educational as well. I’m a big history buff so this was right down my alley! As you can see, hubby (who is half-Indian) got into the spirit of things, too!

An Officer's tent circa 1848

Hubby Lorne tries on some new head gear


Some of the vendor’s wares


A Seminole Camp



A Bag Piper


Black Powder firing demonstration


Seminole Re-enactors describe how the Seminole’s used firearms



A Trader in period costume shows the safe handling of small arms


Tomahawk throwing demonstration


And more photos from the 2nd day of the event:

Just as these four were lining up in a firing demonstration, one of the vendors in period costume walked by with his hands up, shouting; "I didn't do it! I swear it wasn't me!!!" (By the way, no ammunition was used in the firing demonstration. It was just to show how difficult it was shoot firearms in those days.)


This Seminole Indian explains what the decorations on his sash mean. (Hubby Lorne is in the back ground, talking to the lady with the grey hound.)


A Trader's wife and a Lady Seminole have a chat.


A Seminole tent.


This Seminole gentleman was able to tell us a lot about how the Seminoles lived in the old days. He still practices many of the arts they needed to survive.


This nice couple posed for me. Everyone at the re-enactment was very knowledgeable and very patient with all my photo-taking and silly questions. It was a great experience!
