October 5, The Year Of The Horse 馬
A couple weeks ago, I made my yearly appearance at Ticket To The Twenties, a fun 1920s themed event held at the Homestead Museum in the city of Industry, California.
People come dressed in Roaring Twenties garb, listen and dance to music of the twenties, and show off their record collections and their beautiful restored 1920s automobiles. A lot of activities go on at the event. Mah-jongg was a huge craze in the twenties, so I teach how to play a simplified version of Chinese Classical, 1920s-style.
We have two tables going at once, with some return visitors from previous years. I keep busy!
You can see some of the 1920s architecture of the museum grounds.
I always set up a table to display a 1920s Babcock set, and offer my book for sale. This year I even sold one! It's a lot of fun! Come on down next year!
