Why I go broke every year at the Brazoria County Fair…

Hi Friends!

Fall must be on its way because the Brazoria County Fair and Halloween are right around the corner! I’m still a kid when it comes to both. If you’ve had a peek at my pictures from previous Halloween parties on my personal Facebook page (please feel free to ‘friend’ me)you can imagine how outrageous this year is going to be if I’m having difficulty talking George into a new ‘outfit!  In the past he’s willingly gone as: a hooker, a nun, Glenda the Good Witch from the Wizard of Oz and Endora (me as Darren) so you can imagine how outrageous my request is this year if I’m having a bit of difficulty convincing him! FYI: he’s a damn good sport and he loves the attention so I usually don’t have to beg too much.

It’s that fun, frisky time of year – ready for firey colors and crackling wood in the fireplace…I don’t actually have a fireplace but sometimes I turn on the stove to warm up the kitchen and the sound of crackling ceiling paint sounds just like a crackling log in the ol’ fireplace (don’t tell George I do that…it drives him bonkers)!

Let’s get warmed up for the Fair!! Can’t wait to take the g’kids and spend my hard-earned cash on $7cotton candy, $10 soft drinks, $15 dollar rides and $20 sparkley/glowing/blinking/sqishy thingees they can wear on various body parts and are tossed from memory the instant they’re purchased…until the next night when they demand another! I’m warm and fuzzy just thinking about it.

Who do I think I’m kidding! If either of these kids want anything at the fair…I’m making George buy it for them :-)

I could never say “No” to these 2! She actually slept with that bow in her hair.
