Default ever go to a funeral AND carnival on the same day?

even took my worse half out for lunch.

small towns suck. so much for saturday entertainment. the funeral service was nice, with a gospel flavor, and only an hour long (although 9:00 is a bit early) as was taking my niece and daughter out for some fun.

unfortunately my podunk towns idea of a carnival is bringing in the exact same lame ass rides they have for the county fair in august.

how the hell can a tilt a whirl, ferris wheel, merry go round, zipper, and salt 'n pepper shaker not run its course in the past 25 years. dont these things ever break down?

these are the exact same rides ran by the exact same carnies, in the exact same leather trenchcoats, smoking the exact same brand of GPC cigs, since i was a kid.

(atleast having the same "mall santa" for pictures holds a bit of nostalgia.)

seriously, you know youre at a ghetto carnival when people can smoke on the merry-go-round as they hold their 3 year old child on the plastic horse.

damn, i miss football. how many weeks til pre-season?

Tony, when I lived there, the nearest mall was in El Paso - - Cruces didn't even have one!!!!! We even made a couple of trips to Albuquerque to hit a mall at Xmas time.....

Went to a going away party at the club on base one time, and one of the wives made a statement that still cracks me up..... She took the mike and said, "You know that you have been in XXXXX too long, when there is a dress at KMart that you just CAN:T live without!!!!" Oh, so true.....

I haven't been there since 1980, but I can just imagine how the place has grown..... I kinda liked the town......

you would be amazed how its grown.

while the old k-mart has now evolved into a [s]mall that we like to call the "hall", we actually have a Home Depot and Lowes (across the street).

i am sure you remember the otero county fair, then.

it is EXACTLY the same. absolutely nothing has changed. the lion burgers are still the same, the corn on the cob is just as good and i swear its still the same animals in the livestock and rodeo.

with all that being said, i kinda like it too. i wouldnt mind moving out of "town" though, away from all the "hustle and bustle".

I've been to a funeral that the family treated like a carnival. . .

Including when they (the family) all got up and got behind one another, hands on hips, and did the train dance through the aisles . . .
