But today would not be the day. We were downtown and bound to see what the fuss was all about. The Sisters who shopped there the day before while we were in
|Fleur de lis. Tis French like a fry.|
SOTF came about from two real-life sisters and their love of the sport and the great outdoors. There are many horse lovers, real-life ranchers, outdoorsy women in our group with a side of Western cowgirl in all of them. Me and Cindy...not so much. Give me Kerr Lake in our hometown any day, and I'll fish 'til the cows come home. I loveee to fish. So, yes, I am interested in learning to fly fish. But straddle a horse??? No way in Dodge.
|Here's Cindy attracting men again. He was checking out her pole, haa.|
Being an avid fly fisherman himself, the gentleman was very impressed with Cindy's fly rod purchase, particularly the good deal she got. But, she knew that all along. You go, gurl.
Which reminds me...
This is the last fella that came a'callin on Thelma back in Gatlinburg, Tennessee at our first ever SOTF event. Something about dem men of the Appalachias...

With 20 or so antique/thrift stores downtown, we gave it our best shot to patronize or at least window shop all of them.
|We're drunk on junk.|
|A break from shopping and a gluten-free treat. Life is good.|
Like most downtown businesses, owners closed up shops at five. And though we weren't ready to leave, Towanda drove us back to the trailer park for
shenanigans quality time with our other Sisters. They met us as we were parking, excited to see what we had found. Let's just say it took a while to go through our purchases, ha.
And, about that shine...
Apparently one of the antique dealers enjoyed the open house so much, not only did he give us a discount at his shop, but some butterscotch moonshine as well.
Just across from our campsite #75, we gathered for a campfire near the pavilion for a shot or some of moonshine, served, I swear, in communion cups.
Which reminds me...
I snapped these pictures earlier in the day. Seems fitting to include them at this point in my blog post...
Communion cups, y'all. Law, we gone burn sho'nuff.
