Did you enjoy the holidays? It seems to me that most people weren't as frantic and where enjoying the season more than usual. Maybe we are appreciating the nicer things in life more. I took part of the family up to Spokane to visit relatives on Christmas Day and came back the following Tuesday. The drive up took 12-13 hours, the drive back, due to weather and detours, took 23-24 hours. That's the kind of trip that makes you just want to stay where you are! Beautiful scenery, not many gas stations. And what's with Oregon people making fun of us Californians? At least we know how to pump our own gas! Anyway, it gave me a long time to conjure up some pretty cool ideas for the Fair.
Our offer to a national act in our grandstands has been accepted. Who is it? Can't say. Yet. I can tell you it's a country act with several top 40 hits on the country charts. We are waiting for the "Release to Promote" contract. To which we will send a "Release to Release the Release to Promote Contract". Just kidding, these acts do bring a lot of goofy paperwork and rules, but anything for our customers.... you!
Oh yeah. After my trip, I thought of where my entry for the Favorite Places Display would be. Home. There's no place like home.
