Fun at Old Thresher's

This year was the 60th Annual Old Thresher's Reunion in Mt. Pleasant, IA. We attended with one of our nephews, his wife (whom we claim as our niece), and their two daughters. (You may observe that child number three is due very soon! :-)

L: We boarded a trolley car from the camping/parking lot to the grounds.
R: Some of the "scenery"










L: Have you ever heard of a 1920 Ford AA "Doodlebug?"
R: I have no idea what this is, but it's old. ;-)











Some cute pictures, which involve the purchase of taffy apples!



















Some of the "Gunslingers" agenda










"Wanted Posters" in the Post Office














These desperate looking criminals were found in jail...














Walking by a tent with entertainment... here we have "Dueling Banjos."

Riding another trolley car, out to the Log Village















Oak Ridge School - modeling a one-room school.














Spinning sheep's wool into yarn










Oh, no! A Train Robbery!





























The weather was great. We surely enjoyed our day! I'm so glad they called us to join them. :-)

P.S. Abigail Esther was born early Monday (Sept. 7) morning. She weighed 7 lbs 9 oz. Just on time. :-) Do you suppose all this walking had anything to do with it?
