Giddyup

The rodeo is in town! My company had a booth at the BBQ Cook-off this weekend and I was given a free pass, so I took the girls on Saturday. It was rainy and VERY windy when we got there, but cleared up and turned into a really nice day.

The girls enjoyed the brisket and beans, but it all just made me miss Corky's BBQ. In the carnival area, we rode one roller coaster that scared the wee-wee out of both of them (S's look of petrified glee was priceless) and then they rode the big swings which I couldn't even watch. I was sure S was going to fly right off . . . they said it was scary but they loved it!

While we were there, H had her first experience with a port-a-potty, and I'm now grateful for two things: (1) having that little bottle of Purell in my purse, and (2) that I remembered to holler through the door: "Don't wash your hands! That's not soap in the little sink!"

That sure reminds me of many fun trips to Opryland!! We did love that roller coaster, especially in the rain. Remember riding the Grizzly River Rampage with the dressed up couple who were apparently illiterate and couldn't read "YOU WILL GET WET ON THIS RIDE." Boy were they wet and boy were they mad.

Love, Pop

Oh, I miss Opryland! I believe that's the only time in my life I've ever been sorry to see a new mall, when they replaced Opryland with Opry Mills.
