O, to be sure, we laugh less and play less and wear uncomfortable disguises like adults, but beneath the costume is the child we always are, whose needs are simple, whose daily life is still best described by fairy tales. Leo Rosten

We took a break Saturday from our work around the house and took in the civil war re enactment in Kingston, MO.
A local farmer donates his field for the battle re enactment.
Looks real doesn't it.
The re en actors are all ages and genders.
The little town of Kingston was raided by bushwhackers in 1862, robbing the stores and courthouse.
|Union civilian camp|
The Union had a militia in Kingston and a battle followed the raid.
The Union lost this skirmish.
Well, back to finishing up the work on our house, nearly done.
