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!
