This will be another experiment to start. I want to upload a movie I made with my camera. I don't know if it will upload and run.
first an explanation.
Trader's village in Grand Prairie hosts an Indian pow-wow each year. The Indians gather and compete in dancing plus maybe other stuffs. You can go for free. This year it happened about August 22nd I think - might have been September.
Their costumes are just great. So here is a try at downlo === no, uploading a very short movie showing some dancing.
I got greedy and uploaded 3 at the same time. As I type, the top 2 did not work. Maybe later in time it will. Focus is lacking I see.
This event does things to raise money to offset the cost of travel for all their folk. They take donations for the drummers; they take donations for the dancers; they take donations for anything that seems to work.
Raffles: they have many raffles. One of these had a shawl as the prize. The women dancers walk in a big circles - should say dance in a circle - wearing these shawls. Some are quite beautiful. I bought tickets for more than one event - raffles - because the entire show is free and I appreciated the festival.
Who knew? We won one of the raffles. It was the one that I wanted to win. Bright red cloth and handmade decorations. below is a photo of it - then, without my wife's blessing - a photo of her modeling the shawl for my camera. So it is upload time again. Maybe this time the top 2 movies will upload also. We'll see.
okay it won't work.
so I will post this and try again with a clean slate. I want you to see the shawl.
A "STONE" is a family word for a personal story or thought, not quite an essay or short story. We moved to central Texas to be near a daughter. We are down to only one wirehair dachshund - Sadie. (Goodbye in 2021 to Oscar the ball boy and Bruno the larger twin) & my wife -- penned by a retired Texas H.S. band director - just nonsense thoughts unrelated to each other or anything other than what's happening and comments.
