If there is one thing we Hoosiers do well, it is dressing up like folks from 100+years ago. How many re-enactment villages, military encampments, homesteads, etc. do we have in our old state?
What's the allure? Is it the fashion statement? Is it the opportunity to let our craziness come out, kinda like at Halloween? We always attend Fulton County Historical Society's Red Bud Rendezvous (April) and Trail of Courage (September)........mostly because I absolutely love hearing bagpipes. But often my wife and I look at each other and wonder.......who are these people?
Don't get me wrong. I love it. Hey, you want to walk around in deer skin chaps, feel free. I'd appreciate it if you wore something underneath, though. Sometimes I suggest to my beautiful wife that we need to pack up and travel with these folks, like carnies or groupies. The kids would love it. Or, at least, let me buy some cool duds to walk around river city in.
