Girls' Night Out

Every year my friend Kathy and I troop off to the fair to eat junk food, drink a beer, see a concert, and then buy kettle corn and cinnamon rolls for the road.

This year, we wanted to see Charlie Daniels and Lonestar...but my daughter's soccer practice put a glitch in that. Instead, we saw Heart. Now, long, long ago, I saw Heart in concert in college (yeah, THAT long ago). I enjoyed the concert...but except for the addition of a couple of Ann Wilson's new songs from her upcoming solo album, they played the same music I heard on that far-away day. Ah....nostalgia.

I heated up the cinnamon rolls for breakfast this morning and we'll snack on kettle corn tonight while watching television. We'll go to the fair as a family on Saturday, but the emphasis will be on the petting zoo areas and the rides and the only junk food anyone will want will be cotton candy.

I'm just hoping we don't get run down by a pig this year!

You got run down by a pig last year? Do tell!

Yep...we're walking through the pig area and we hear someone yelling. I didn't pay the least bit of attention, there's always someone yelling about something at my house. Then boom. This huge weight hit the back of my legs and I careened into the fences lining the pens. "Hey!" I say...and then look into the face of a very surprised, very LARGE pig!
