Yesterday our Civil War group, the 18th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, attended a local farm Christmas celebration. We set up a few tents and fly, had a fire, coffee and snacks and just all around enjoyed a fun day of Christmas, Civil War Style.
I promised pictures of myself in the paletot, so here ya go.
I’m knitting, of course. And maybe laughing, too.
Here’s Dale, pontificating for the local cable television crew.
And this is our fly, all decked out for the holiday.
It was a great afternoon, even if it was pretty cold. The fire and wool clothes mostly kept us warm, although my feet were cold, even in my wool socks. But spending time with our buddies, laughing and just enjoying the chance to be together in the off-season, was a great way to spend the Sunday before Christmas.
