Annual Civil War Dance Pic

It's that time of year again! The Civil War came to town, and we went to the Saturday night dance again. This photo was taken by Gordon's jousting partner, in our back yard, right before we left. We only danced a couple of times, and ended up visiting with the British Observer for the Confederate Army, Col. Marshall, and his wife, over port and shortbread. Turns out they live on Lopez Island, not to far north of us. Just like Second Life, you never know when you're going to make new friends! They came by this morning after breaking camp, and we fed them breakfast (always lots of eggs on hand!) and visited for several more hours. Turns out Mr. Marshal runs a foundry, and is building a bronze Gattling gun in his spare time. That made "Mr. Peterman" very happy!

You two look great!

Thanks! For some reason I couldn't find ANY of my hair combs, which are pretty necessary for 1860s hair styles, so I think my hair looks a mess. Then again, I think 1860s women's fashions are awful, anyway. Luckily, the Mr. looks fabulous as usual.

I agree with Elle. What a great picture. Sounds like good fun....with two new friends to boot.
