hi bdale, interesting  series of events, I would have liked to be there to see them, wishing you all a` successful time, an original flock print Tee shirt I acquired from a WWII Toccoa veteran, the British made and white tongue patches are just resting on the shirt

 

regards Lewis.

might go up again this year, since I live less than an hour away

 

I went last year and it was a nice small town event in the beautiful north Georgia mountains

 

I heartily recommend it
