double feature

I head a pretty busy day on Saturday. I got some target practice in first thing, then headed over to watch the Wolfpack take on the tarholes. By the way...


After the game, I headed home and treated myself to a double feature...Holiday Inn and White Christmas. I love me some Bing Crosby.

Now I'm ready to put up Christmas decorations. Can someone restrain me for a week, please?

Thanks. The ornaments will appreciate an extra week away from Oozey.

Happy Veterans' Day to my 2 favorite veterans! Thank you for doing hard things so the rest of us can be free. I love you!

Wow. We've made it to 500 posts. I'd like to start off by thanking everyone for reading this foolishness...and by apologizing that I haven't updated in quite a while. I've been a bad blogger. I'll reform. I promise.

Lydia and I went to the fair two weeks ago. We ate everything and made poor Amy come along to document it. I think she ended up eating more that Lydia and I when it was all said and done. OK...on to the pictures.

The first stop: Fried Cheese. I got introduced to this last year...and it's fast becoming a favorite. The only drawback? I can't eat a whole order by myself. We split this 3 ways and it was still almost too much!

If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, does it make a sound?

And if you eat a ham biscuit at the fair before Lydia gets there to see you eating it, does it count?

Of course it does. That ham biscuit (which was purchased here about 2 hours before this picture was taken) was delicious.

So was the fried Milky Way:

And the Al's Fries. I'm really focusing on my ketchup to vinegar ratio here:

It was at this point in the evening that my gimpy foot got the better of me. I spent the next hour hobbling around and poor Lydia and Amy had to practically carry me out of the fair. I whined a lot. I think I might have even cried at one point.

I rallied for NC State ice cream though. That always seems to bring me around. I didn't make it to the free fudge in the craft booth. All of our aches and pains caught up to us at that moment. I think I was begging for an amputation as I was clutching my milkshake:

So that was the fair. Next year I'm bringing a wheelchair. Or maybe a Hoveround.

I'll definitely be bringing Amy and Lydia.
