It's almost here



good morning everyone....

ok, so usually I am not too, too excited for the weekends as they really seem to be like just any other day to me, but not this weekend!!

My bubs and I got tickets and we are going to see Merle Haggard and George Jones...now before all you non country music fans start groaning and feeling uncomfortable in your seats, please keep in mind that I grew up listening to this music, my Dad was a huge fan of Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, The Carter Family, WIllie Nelson, and yes...Merle Haggard and George Jones...

also.....little music trivia for you...Merle Haggard was actually an inmate at Folsom Prison when Johnny went to perform there, and that was what inspired him to make music.

honestly I find that profoundly moving...that I am afraid that when we see them I am just going to cry, sitting there amidst all the hillbillies and white trash.

This my dear readers is an almost religious experience.

also the show is at the Ohio State Fair...so, you know what that mean.....FRIED DOUGH!!!!

I think they call it something else around here, but it's fried dough to me....I love Fairs, I do...except for all the hicks and whores, oh and the smell of cattle, I hate smelling animals...other than that, it's love.

I wanted to thank all of you who took a few minutes to go to my trunkt profile and rate me and write a comment in my guest book...I am going to keep the offer open for a few days and then I will decide on the raffle winner, so thank you again, it warmed my little (but not dead) heart to see all that love in my inbox.

(ok get your minds out of the gutter...you can't even hear the word inbox without chuckling, can you Cat?)

wait...where was I...oh I have no idea, it's too hot to think, and too hot to speak French, and almost too hot to make stuff....and of course too hot to pack before the move.

So the picture for today is actually my latest set of blocks they are available in my shop, there will be another set available later on as well (hopefully)

ok tomorrow I will be out so no Saturday Night Sale from me....that sort of makes me both happy (to be going out) and sad...as I get all excited for the Saturday Night Sales....

ok enough blabber, blabber...

have a wonderful day, and weekend...and don;t forget to come back on Sunday for Petite Heights!!!

At least it's not Toby Keith.

And I think Johnny Cash's last series of albums are fantastic. American III in particular is really, really great.

Now see, I can respect that: that's real country music, not the crap that passes for it nowadays (see the aforementioned Toby Keith -- better yet, don't). Still not my cup of tea, but I respect it. Plus I love Ryan Adams and he's "alt. country" (whatever that means), so there you go.

Also: A FAIR!!!!! I am so jealous. Have fun! xoxo

I have always listened to Johnny Cash but I don't know anything about these Merle and George folks. I love state fairs! but thats because I grew up in a white trashy hood and it was the most fun thing to do. fried dough, yum. Now fairs have gross shit like fried oreos and twinkies.

Oh dear. Country music. Hmmm....well on the positive side of things, I am not sure you know but I run a prisoner rights program. And I am sure that there will quite a few former inmates there among the hillbillies and white trash. Just treat them like regular folk.:-)

Country... Not a big fan but, oddly enough, though I'm not a big fan, I've seen Merle Haggard in concert. He came out so drunk that he was only able to (half-way) perform two songs and then staggered off the stage and never came back. The rednecks and hicks were all sorely disappointed. Oh well... I was happy though... just meant that I got to leave a bit earlier than I would have otherwise.

We call that fried dough "funnel cakes". I'm trying to go off sugar so I'm totally envious of your getting to eat some. Mmmmmmmm...

Love the new blocks!

Aaron... I didn't realize that Ryan Adams was alternative country...? Learn something new each day. I like him too.

I'm so excited for our county fair, I didn't grow up with them. In New Jersey, fried dough, like the rest of life, was associated with going to the mall. Have fun!

I'm with you on the classic country music. I once saw Johnny Cash at the Ohio state fair. And of course, Ms. June Carter Cash came out for a few numbers.

I have a confession: I am a country music fan too. :-)
