Sunday night, 11-20-13
We just got home from the FROG Rally (ribbitt, ribbitt) at Pin Oak Creek RV Park, Vista Ridge, MO and took in the Deutsch Country Days at the historic Luxenhaus Farm north of Marthasville, MO.
We started off with a Friday night dinner for eleven FROG folks, provided by Bob & Linda Schwarz consisting of two kinds of warm-your-spirit Taco Soup and chips, onions, cheese, olives, jalapenos, crackers (by Claude and Bobbi), corn muffins and wine (by Carol & Terry) and cookies for dessert.
It turned into an International FROG rally as we had folks from Canada attending. We had seven units in all by Forest River and were sorry to miss those who could not make it due to illness and other circumstances beyond their control.
Saturday morning we caravanned to the Festival by automobile. A chilly cloudy morning turned into a bright sunny day just before 10:30 – 11:00 a.m. What a blast. We watched local artisans making brooms, bread, sorghum, knives, fire (starting by the old hand methods), roasted nuts, apple butter, bows and arrows and on and on. Great lunches cooked by local Boy Scout Troup’s consisted of sliced steak sandwiches, bratwurst, corn on the cob, coffee, hot chocolate, lemonade and many other tasty treats including funnel cakes, potato chips and cookies to die for. Climbing around the quite hilly farm was great exercise but a few were limited and stayed on the lower levels. We left the grounds with our larter about 2:15 p.m. to return to the RV park. That evening we had a hot little fire and a few of us gathered around to discuss topics of interest. We hit the road to go home Sunday about 10:30 a.m. This was a rally worth repeating.
