Well, in true McGilly style, I'm stretching this one to suit myself, but I think you'll enjoy it anyway.
Last Saturday I volunteered to go to Mule Day in Calvary GA to sell cookbook for the Junior Service League, that's where the link ends... dish... cookbooks... get it???? I had been told this was some kind of artsy crafty big kinda horse/mule show thingy and I'd be able to take the kids and make it a day out, and that they usually have about 60 thousand people there... ok... 60 thousand people are not flocking to South GA to look at mules... or are they????
We set out in what we thought was good time to make the trip, as we get closer to the Mule Grounds the traffic begins to slow down and then stop... people start walking past the truck in the direction of the "thing", we were still a good ways off. Surely to God we're not parking here and walking????? Hell no... hell yeah!!!
Then as we got closer to the "thing" it gradually opened out before my eyes and the only work to describe my feelings was GOBSMACKED!!!!! What in the wide wide world of Sports do we have here???? The annual coming out of every country boy and girl on the planet.... and we had to find our little booth, among ten thousand booths... of course we couldn't call the our girl because we were in the BOONIES and there's no cell phone reception!!!!!!!!!!
So to sum up... we drove a long way, we walked a long way, and then the kids rode a short way in circles...
Ashley is always dressed and ready for any occasion, she's a true Southern Belle.
Then we all held hands and went home to some super chili waiting for us in the crock pot... which again links back to my favorite dish!!!!!
