Fiddlin' Around

Spent a fantastic and relaxing weekend in East Texas (Athens to be exact).  Among some of the Memorial Day happenings was the 80th Annual Fiddler's Reunion that is held each year on the Courthouse lawn.  There is a contest among those who fiddle and live bands.  It was a really fantastic thing to watch and enjoy. And, it's always nice to be on an old town square surrounded by nice folks just enjoying themselves.

Amazing old courthouse building.

Another great view of the square--awesome old building
