See pretty neat. We enjoyed walking around it and taking photos, yet I’m sad to say we felt no “energy” coming from it. The river was flowing, the drive was nice and the weather was totally awesome. On Saturday we stayed in town and went down to a Art & Craft Festival…where we walked around, sat and ate and listened to some folk music. This one young guy was playing a 150 year old guitar, he played a lot of Mexican/Spanish type ballad music-it was very nice. After we left there we drove around downtown and found some booths set up at the courthouse. And naturally we had to stop and have a look see. We bought a CD of HeartStrings Treasures, they play an interesting looking instrument and Beloved loved their relaxing sound.
On Sunday we meet up with a dear internet, the original Jannie Funster and family, in Fredericksburg where we toured the National Museum of the Pacific War. Very appropriate for the weekend don’t you think. No need to answer I know it was. Speaking of the Funster, she writes and makes some pretty good music too and I love her CD, I Need a Man. Although I find the idea a bit confusing as her honey is a man, and I think he is a good guy. Did I mention they brought lil’ Kelly with ‘em? Well they did and she was her usual charming self.
We ate at the German place (I know what place in Fredericksburg is NOT German) The Funsters had not had real German tatar salad before and I don’t think they will have it again. After lunch we walked around the hot town meandering in and out of air conditioned shops. Where we learned that the Shabby Chic phenomenon was born right here in this town, so they say. Who knew? Well I didn’t and this was an educational trip. Did I tell you we found a candy store, yes oh yes we did and guess what it had candy in it. It was too soon that we had to go our separate ways they to Austin and we back to Kerrville for our last night before heading home.
Now, now don’t be put out my dear internets ...
E-Candy for everyone. Catch! So what kind did you get? chocolate, taffy, something sour or extra sweet?
