Are You Going to Scarborough Fair?

The Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie, Texas doesn't start until the end of April... but plan ahead! 
I'm planning!  (I've heard it is WONDERFUL!)

Why am I even thinking about it?
Because look who I ran into at Kroger's Monday evening??
Of course we had to get a selfie!!
(Should that be plural, with 2 people?)!

That's me with beloved Sophie!!
We hadn't seen each other in a long time!
I was walking along near the frozen food section and I saw the back of a person with long hair, and it made me think of Sophie.  Then I heard the lady singing softly to the music on the intercom.  It was the song "IF" (you know, the beautiful old song by BREAD, "If a picture paints a thousand words... etc.")   Well, I looked around at the front of said lady... and she WAS Sophie!!!

Many of my blog readers know her.  For those of you who don't, she and I (and many others) were on the music team at Bear Valley Community Church for years and years....
and were a 'family'.   
Well, once a family, always a family.

We got to talking... and she told me how she and her husband David are a part of the Scarborough Renaissance Festival every spring in Waxahachie, TX.  
And she showed me pictures!

Well, the first one of them was made professionally.  It is amazing...
It turns out they're both Scottish!
One from the Hunt clan, and one from the Hunter clan (something like that).

Here's Sophie in the parade that marches each Saturday at noon...

And here's her husband David...

Will and Bailey love to go to the festival every spring.  
And Sophie got a picture of Will and Nell last spring!

So if and when they go this spring I want to tag along!

Some attendees even dress in Renaissance clothes.
I'll have to see what is in my closet.

Here's Simon and Garfunkel singing "Scarborough Fair".  It's beautiful.  ('Course you may have to watch a short commercial first.)

Wow. I really liked that.

In other news, last night Sam and I went to see Bailey's mom perform at Central Market in Southlake.
I should have invited Elizabeth and her family... but I thought it might be rained out... 
but it wasn't - well, at least it wasn't when we were there.
Ah, but they had Robin's band on the porch in case it did rain.
I'll show you pictures of that event soon!  Stay tuned.

Selfie wouldn't be plural, it is still just one selfie of the two of you. :). And I remember going to Scarborough fair in middl school, it was so fun!

Thanks for the comment, Laura.

My hometown...

I am thinking of my hometown now. Mission, Texas. And McAllen, Texas. And Mercedes, Texas, where I was born. And Donna, Texas, so near there...
