Fifth Folder, Fifth Picture... Kind of

My best childhood friend, Tiffanie, "tagged" me on her blog. I always think it's annoying when people blog just because they were "tagged," but since I am not much of a blogger... I might as well write about what she wants me to... so here it is... the fifth picture in my fifth folder... and also one of my favorite Florida memories.

Yes, this is what you think it is... a real Civil War reinactment. One of my friends from Florida, Michelle, took me to this in Olusty, Florida, near Lake City. It was one of the FUNNIEST things I have ever seen, although it was meant to be really serious. There were bleachers set up so people could watch... and much to my shock, the crowd started roaring when the Confederates came out on the battle field. When I scoffed at what was happening, I was told the crowd also cheered when the Union came out... but I didn't hear it. Nor do I believe it. You've got to love the South.

Tiffanie also tagged me again... something about 7 things... we'll see if I get to that one. Probably I'll find something else to blog about. No more tagging.

Also... I haven't actually told anyone about this blog... except Tiffanie... so if you're discovering it, it's all on your own. Welcome.

Andrea I adore you! See, tagging is my only way (I feel) to get you on your blog. And since we have a lot of catching up to do (who doesn't) I thought guilt would help. So thank you!

As for the picture, yes, it is so sad and funny and many other things living in the South. We saw many Confederate Flags hanging up on people's yards, trucks (never cars, I don't think KKK. . . I mean Confederate lovers drive cars), I even saw a Christmas Tree decorated with all things Confederate. Surprisingly though, we never saw one of those re-creations. Which is stupid considering how close we were to Lake City!

okay- novel over.

It would be really interesting to go to a reinactment like that. I'm not a fan of tagging either, but without it, you may never have talked about this or posted that picture. So, it's kind of fun.
