This weekend we are going to the "derby", no not the Kentucky Derby. We are camping with our Traveling American group near Lancaster, Pa. and the theme is the Kentucky Derby. Saturday evening we are having a derby meal(a stew called Burgoo and I'm supplying the potatoes) and are to dress for the derby. This evening I made a hat to wear. I'm anxious to see the hats the other ladies will be wearing. Tom has located an appropriate hat for the occasion, also, but his lacks the charm of mine. The weekend should be especially nice for the ladies as Sunday is Mother's Day and the men are preparing the potluck breakfast. That seems only fair when the ladies do most of the fixing at the other times.
