This year the festival is in Fredricksburg on October 18/19 . . . anyone planning on going?
Lone Star Gourd Festival 2008
I'll see you there, Syrumani. I'm a member of East Texas Piney Woods in Longview, to which patch do you belong?
I don't! I have not been able to find anything in less than an hours drive, and with gas prices nowadays . . . Looking forward to seeing you!
Hmmm... is there a website? I'd certainly consider it; that's right before my birthday and I'd LOVE to give myself something gourdish.
I met Bonnie Gibson at our Gourd Festival...she lives in Tucson. Such a nice lady. Jo
Syrumani, it's probably a six hour drive or so. I've made it before. I'll have to give it some serious thought, though!
What are the chances of you coming over, Jo? I know it's about a 12 hour drive . . . I'd really like to start meeting other DGers!
12 hours from where?
I have been invited to attend a RU in TX ...and am considering flying to either Dallas or Shreveport next year...but I love San Antonio.I stayed with MarilynTX one year and went to a RU in College Station. It was fun...Jo
OH! When my DH was living we used to drive from West Central Florida to Houston in one day...then on to Souther Arizona the next day. Hard trip though.
As Texans say...."The sun is riz, the sun is set...here we is in TXs yet!! LOL Jo
miles and miles of nothing but miles and miles, as Red Skelton used to say!
And here I complain about the 4-5 hour drive to Dallas . . .
