move the fair to the next destination. It was quite the week for our little town but I think we are ready to get back to the peace and quiet that our sleepy little town is known for.
Toby Keith was beyond exceptional Saturday night. He is all about
the military and they stood a huge group of new recruits on stage and swore them in before the concert started, it was very cool to see. The beer tent ran out of Red Solo Cups during the concert, rumor has it that they started with over 30,000. At $4.00 per beer that’s a lot of money. The bathroom lines were extremely long too which makes sense, what goes in must come out.
Prior to the concert we decorated our front porch with a Red Solo Cup Pyramid and I was wearing my Red Solo Cup shirt, RSC hat, RSC earrings and RSC bracelets. An incident occurred at our neighbor’s house and I was standing in the driveway when three police vehicles quickly pulled in. I was chatting with a neighbor with a beer in hand as were a few party guests when I realized that our house looked like a frat house. But oh well, Toby Keith doesn’t pay a visit to Monticello very often so I’m sure the police understood.
Concert goers got a kick out of my RSC hat and decided to place their empty cups inside the cup on my head. By the end of the night I looked like a unicorn with dozens of empty cups on my head! I’m glad the fair only comes to town once per year as that’s about all I can handle.
I went to the ATM the other day to get some cash and when the
receipt popped out I got a big surprise as it stated there was $236,605 in my checking account. As I sat there studying it with a smile on my face the “true” receipt popped out of the machine bringing me quickly back to reality. Who keeps that much cash in their checking account? I decided it must have been Toby Keith.
With the fair behind us it’s now time for back to school clothes and supplies. Mac has been studying her Justice catalogs and has circled
everything she wants, which is nearly everything. From sparkly cowboy boots to shirts covered in sequence, I now have a fashion diva on my hands. We also have a birthday party to plan as William will turn 6 in August. And before we know it the kids will be starting school (24 days – but who’s counting!) and we will be wondering where the summer has gone.
But let’s not give up on summer yet. I know it’s hotter than hell outside and rain has been non-existent but let’s suck every last ounce we can out of July. That way in December when we are bitching about how cold it is we will be able to reflect on what a great time we had in July.
