Lady Allwinky and I brunched and roadtripped this Saturday

a visit to the past via Lincoln Days

we visited Sir Bowie of Greenbriar and Sir James of Taylor (who was gracious enough to share his tent when the rain came down)

Sir B fed us peach cobbler cooked in his dutch oven

we toured log cabins and saw a wedding re-enactment

A good day and now a good night!

Lady S, off to find a beer and practice these toasts!
