Happy National Pony Express Day!

national pony express dayHello!

I know that technically the pony express was the beginning of a transcontinental communication system but how am I supposed to celebrate that today? Obviously this mail delivery system is a little bit archaic in the modern world and equally obsolete so there’s no way I could just hop on over to the pony post and snap a photo with a delivery steed. Tricky, huh? Well, that’s the nature of this blog – there are just a few wacky holidays that throw themselves in here and, in turn, throw me for a loop. That’s when I find myself a loophole. So I may not be able to celebrate with the pony express but I can celebrate with some plain old ponies! The annual trip to the fair with G&G always ensures a visit to the horse barn where we snack on some majorly greasy curly fries and enjoy some really talented horse riding and showmanship. Ponies – check, express? – not quite. Oh, well – that will work for today. See you tomorrow for more holiday fun!

Happy National Neither Rhyme Nor Reason Day!


Today did have a little bit of rhyme and reason (who am I to go off the deep end) but I did go as crazy as I could allow myself. It’s been more than 15 years of tradition to visit the state fair on the Sunday before Labor Day with our dear friends Gary and Genoa. There have been lots of fun memories over the years: being carried on Gary’s shoulders when my flipflops disintegrated, riding the giant Slingshot ride, all of us huddled around a giant curly fry brick, and this year riding the Buena Vista ferry on the way home for fun. It’s always a good time when we go to the fair and this time I tried to spunk it up a little bit. Good thing these fun face-fill-in-props were everywhere! I hope that everyone goes just a little batty and acted with neither rhyme nor reason!
