Unfortunately, the "Battle Of 1835" in Kirby, Texas got rained out today. It was cloudy, but dry all thirty miles along the way into Kirby,
just SE of San Antonio. But no sooner did I hit the city limits then it came down in torrents. I was drenched walking around the church
grounds. No place to hide. The reenactors were ducking under pavilions set up for the festival concessionaires, but even they were too
flimsy and narrow against the driving rain. After an hour of waiting for the rain to subside, it was decided to call off the battle, as the
field was inundated and boggy. I had a scary time driving back home through Seguin . The rain was exceptionally heavy and I never went
faster than 50 mph, though some fools on the highway thought that driving even faster in the rain was the way to go. Got home safely,
but the floormats in my new car are now all muddy. I will try and clean them after they've dried out.

Nice field adjoining the church grounds chosen for the battle, a tad larger than a regulation football field.

Ned, Thanks again for being there and for posting your pictures. Sorry that the event was rained out, but happy that you made it home safely. Hope you can get all that mud out of your car. That reminds me of a story about a kid who was walking home with a bag of cheese and crackers from the store during a heavy rain. As he tried to leap over a mud puddle, his paper bag broke and its contents fell right into the mud puddle.
Not knowing that his pastor was right behind him, the boy let out a loud exclamation using the Lords name in vain. :o
What did you say, young man?, the pastor asked.
The boy turned around, paused for a moment, and said, Cheese and crackers, got all muddy! ;)

What´s all the buckets for?

What a shame it kept raining so much they had to cancel the reenactment. Glad you made it home safe and sound. It´s no fun driving in lots of rain. I hope you can salvage your floor mats so that you don´t have to buy new ones.

Thanks, Richard!

Hans, the buckets were for catching rainwater. Some folks under the tents/tarps/canvas pavilions were foolishly poking the canvas up to drain the water off
the top. As you may already know, this only tends to create a leak. I found that out the hard way. (No it wasn't me who poked the canvas, but that was my only
shelter.)

The booth shown in the above photo is the concessions and raffle ticket booth. Guess I didn't win any of the prizes because I didn't get a phone call tonight. As
for the food tickets I'd purchased, was not able to use them because the concessionaires did not have enough dry space to prepare their wares. But no matter,
as the tickets purchased went towards the upkeep of the church and school.

P.S. As for my muddy floor mats, after they've dried, I'm sure I can just use an old toothbrush to remove the dust.

Right, never touch the canvas ceiling when it rains. But why catch rainwater in buckets? Because they knew it would create leaks when they poked the canvas, so they brought a bunch of buckets with them to the reenactment? :o

Why not use a bigger brush? With a toothbrush it´ll take all day or at least longer than it will if you use a bigger brush.

Sad. For the first time, I can't say "It looks like a good time was had by all." :(

The "Come And Take It" Festival will be held this coming weekend in Gonzales (October 7 & 8). While this ad in the AAA Texas Magazine mentions
just about every event in the festival, it curiously omits the most important one (to me anyway), namely the battle reenactment in Gonzales' Pioneer
Village on Saturday the 7. Somebody has clearly dropped the ball.

I will be at the Alamo Gift Shop today signing books and CDs. For those of you who make it to Gonzales today for the reenactment,
please take a lot of photos for the forum.

So, nobody made it to Gonzales this year?

I plan to be in Kirby tomorrow unless something comes up to prevent me.
