Cliff and I were up bright and early yesterday morning; instead of taking our walk, we got in the car at 6 AM and went to Kansas City to the City Market. I enjoyed the little getaway, although it was already hot. We bought some corn on the cob and bell peppers, and a nice head of cabbage. Oh, and some sweet cherries at what I thought were a bargain at $1.50 a pound, until we went into WalMart later and found them for $1 a pound. I hate when that happens.
I bought the tickets for mine and the girls' unlimited rides wristbands at the state fair; Lowe's is the only place you can get them, and they're $20. $2 of that goes to the Red Cross The best you can do once you are at the fair is a 15-ride wristband for $18, and I'd still have to pay $8 admission to get in; so it's a bargain. Even though we'll be paying $15 a day for camping on fairground property, I still have to pay to get in when we walk through to the actual fairgrounds. Thursday, because it's dollar day, my admission will be $1. Then Friday I'll get in when I get my wrisband, so Saturday will be the only time I have to pay the full price. Kids under 12 years old get in free at all times.
It's still unmercifully hot. Don't even ask how I fared yesterday when I decided to take my walk at noon, with the temperature at 98 degrees. Suffice to say, I won't be that stupid again.
Oh, someone asked in a previous comment, "What's a 'haint?'"
It's just a hillbilly word for "ghost". And I don't believe in them, by the way.
