Decided last week that cabin fever was settling in and I needed to get out again, so I sorted through the various events and places on my “gotta do this sometime” list and eventually settled on A Plan.
In Four Parts.
Part One: catch the time machine back to the 1840s and hop off at Fanthorp Inn to spend a couple of hours listening to the monthly Second Saturday Musicians.
Part Two: head east a little, pop up Home Sweet Nylon Taffeta Home at Stubblefield Lake, and spend Saturday Evening and Sunday Morning getting some serious training miles on the Lone Star Trail.
Part Three: Head into Huntsville for the last day of the Sam Houston Folklife Festival on the grounds of the Sam Houston Museum.
Part Four: return to Stubblefield Lake for another day or two wandering the forest.
On paper, it looked very very good.
And Part One went off very very well.
I got to Fanthorp Inn about 1:00, and the Star of Texas Dulcimer Gang was settled in on the front porch….
I said hello to the various musicians and the Guide/Interpreter/Ranger on duty, the redoubtable Adam Arnold (whom we last saw as a Christmas Bridge Troll at Barrington Farm in 2014) and went to work.
