It's time to start decorating for Christmas........well at the Fort anyway. Today Brenda and I sat down and made a plan for centerpieces for the Historical Dinner. It should be pretty to say the least. Our colors are blue, silver and white and we are celebrating the year 1945. That was a busy time at the Fort. We were a remount station and a P.O.W. camp so there was a lot of activity. The lime light will be on a horse by the name of "Old Gordon Russell". A stud horse used to breed some of the finest thoroughbreds ever born. So decorations will be something to do with horseshoes, (and snowflakes) can't wait to get our hands in the middle of pine boughs, old horseshoes, thistles, twigs, pine cones, whatever we can find on the land to work with. Anyone wanting to get their hands dirty, let me know.
