Peggy and Buddy Wood's 50th Wedding Anniversary

On August 3, 2002, my parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.  Since they didn't want a big to-do, we treated them to a weekend at the Gables Bed and Breakfast in Rusk, TX.

We drove to Palestine, TX and rode the Texas State Railroad steam train.  The locomotive used on our trip IMG_0939.JPG (289267 bytes) was once based in Winnfield, LA and used by the T&G Railroad.

Though the trip was very hot, we got to meet some interesting characters, too!
