Speech Notebook September 12, 2006
Here's this week's speech notebook. I wrote about going to the Yellow Daisy Festival craft fair this weekend, which, if you believe their PR people, is the "largest craft fair in the nation!"
And it was big. And many, many, many people were there. But it was pretty well managed for its size. I'll let my lovely drawings speak for themselves.
What I didn't draw a picture of was the blue stuff on the ground that Hattie picked up outside a bank of porta-potties, resulting in the staining of her hands and then mine, as I frantically tried to clean her up, for the next two days. Try eating a sandwich with hands stained blue from some mysteriously vivid porta-potty stuff (hopefully unused) when you've only had access to spray-on "sanitary liquid" to wash your hands with. It's enough to make you gag. But we're all still here, so it can't have been too toxic.
I also didn't draw a picture of us paying $37 for 2 hot dogs, a hamburger, some chicken fingers, and a gyro.
But we had a pretty good time there. Next year, if we go, we plan to get there the minute the gates open.
