Rendezvous…

I have certainly had some fun visiting the rendezvous in the last few years.  They are becoming my favorite venue for my micro-RV trips. With temperatures in the 60s today and much of November, it doesn’t feel like winter (thank goodness) but I am still in the mode of looking back with my picture portfolio. So, I have gathers some pics to celebrate rendezvous.  Someday, if I live long enough I just may try to join some of these folks.

As you can see, my favorite flavor of rendezvous are those celebrating our heritage and settlement history.  I am just not a believer in celebrating war, it should be mourned not celebrated, so I don’t usually attend the civil war versions and such.

Dream On… Dream On…

I have said this before but I think it needs refreshing. You are never too old to stop dreaming.  Here I am in my seventies and still dreaming of what I want to do in my future years.  Yes, some of those dreams are unrealistic from a physical standpoint but I continue to dream them anyway. Maybe someone will invent a cure for old age? 🙂

canstockphoto21819757.jpgI have been and always will be a planner and dreams  go hand in hand with that trait. To me planning something is almost as enjoyable as actually doing it.  Sometimes plans don’t work out like my recent visit to Sauder Village in northwestern Ohio but more often than not they are much better than playing it by ear so to speak. I am in the final stages of planning a trip to the Chicago region. It will include a day at the Midway Village and Museum and the Des Plaines Valley Rendezvous in early September. I just found a website that give me a listing of all the rendezvous in the country and plan on visiting several next year. There is just something about non-violent recreators that fascinates me.  Since it makes no sense to me to celebrate our country’s wars I have no interest in the Civil War stuff which seems to predominate the reenactment category.

I am probably in my last decade of life but that doesn’t stop me from dreaming. I suspect I will be on my death bed and still be dreaming in case it ends up being a false alarm. 🙂

Dream On,  Dream On….
