    Wow, even back in history, the wives were allowed to have a different last name (assuming "Lavender" was indeed her maiden name or name of her previous husband?)?? I thought that was a new fangled thing, of wives maintaining their own maiden names instead of taking their husband's last name when they marry. Interesting! And with a lavender skirt, you will be aptly named! I generally don't get to go to the "reinactor" type events like at Cowtown here in town, because I have other commitments for my weekends. But they are fun to attend during the week (like the Renaissance or Medieval type "faires" that will last 3-4 days, although those encompass other periods of time in history than what you and your husband are portraying.). Guess I need to read up on exactly WHO Gov. Smith was back in American history....errk! (History classes tended to be those droning classes that turned into creative ways to take a nap on my desk!! bad!).
