Zany Fawnskin | GG’s TOT

So, most folks think we are zany here in Fawnskin but we locals know better… eccentric is a better description.

Fawnskin Folks tend to be independent minds or renegades mostly.

But in a good way.

And since we all like to have fun, we tend to all know our neighbors and take the time to chat and play.

For instance, down at Miller Park, Kathy and Todd have been enjoying the recently recovered tennis court with Andi and Dennis while kids play under the watchful eyes of their parents in the Betty Sunseri playground.

Most evenings, males of all ages have been on the basketball court enjoying a game or competing over who can get the most hoops.

A short stroll away, hidden behind the foliage, neighbors gather to chat with local miner, Bob and his wife Kaye.

Of course a lot more happens around town but you have to be observant to notice it.

While I’ve been distracted here at the party perch, Captain John has been keeping an eye on Jack–something which I have to chat with him about sometime soon.

Tonight happens to be the weekly, Babes on Boards so it might be a good time to catch up and enjoy the lakeside frivolity.

GG has been down in the desert but I am back in the saddle again…although I have to catch up with all the happenings.

In the meantime, mark your calendars for the following.

Discovery Center Music in the Mountains
