“Yes … it’s always fun to go through to see the different crafts and people. We’ve been to it at least a half-dozen times of more.”

I have to say that any local "festival" would be immeasurably more entertaining with some of that "free liquor" stuff. Hey, let's just have a "Free (State) Liquor festival" as I'm guessing that would draw a good crowd.

[ I do not go to any of the "quaint little towns" near Lawrence. These places are not like Mayberry. They are creepy. Lots of incest and inbreeding. 100% racist white people. I once had an acquaintance who lived in Eudora about 10 or so years ago. One afternoon a young black kid was going door to door selling encyclopedias ore something. This acquaintance told the kid he would be wise not to be in town after sundown. I no longer acknowledge knowing this person. ]

Wow...honestly. This has to be one of the most ignorant posts I've ever read. There are racist individuals in (I would bet to say) EVERY city. As far as the incest and inbreeding comment, I'm not even going to waste my time responding. Tongie Days is definitely not the place for "boozing" it up. Its a family event that hundreds of kids, teens, adults, and even seniors enjoy. And, as a resident of this "creepy, quaint" town, I have to say....I'm find comfort in knowing you are NOT a resident, too.

I'm planning Spacehog Day on June 21, Summer Solstice, The Longest Day, my favorite day of the year. The Feds are thick here in town it seems, so I'll have to divulge the details after they're gone. I will say that I'll be handing out free K2 and Ben Wa, or whatever that stuff is called, to the first 100 people that show up. Stay tuned.

Anyone going to Saturday’s Symphony in the Flint Hills in Chase County? You can keep busy all weekend long with the 12th Annual FlintHills Folklife Festival in Cottonwood Falls. For those familiar..Capt Drinkwater's just changed hands I see..it's now Chelie's. You may want to get on your bikes and head down..or maybe not. No idea, but it's a good excuse for a ride, right? For those in need of a smaller crowd, head on down to Matfield Green, stop in at the bar for lunch or dinner. It's really more like the local's restaurant..since it's the only one there. You can't miss it, take the marked exit. XD Oh, if you eat in Strong City at the Longhorn Cafe..do not order the 'home fries'. Those will not be what you expect. Nor will you like them. Soggy fresh cut thin fries, no crisp too them, soaked in grease, limp as spaghetti, cooked just long enough to be brown, but not cooked enough to be..anything but grease. God awful nasty artery clogging slime sponges. The other things I've had are good. I have no idea why they think those fries are acceptable, but oddly, the locals I asked about them say, 'Oh, it's because they are fresh cut' like that's reasonable and their a good thing. (but they almost/sorta mention they used to be better) Heck, I've cooked fresh cut and they don't turn out like that goo. To each their own.

Once, in HS, after a football game I think, I ended up alone in a car with some gal from Perry-Lecompton. She kept looking at me like I was a rock star. Every time she tried to kiss me I had to grab the radio knob and act like I was changing stations, just to divert her advances. She also asked me if I like moon pies and parkin' on the ridge. I had no idea what that meant but it scared the hell out of me.

Spacehot, we have a-holes like that in Lawrence, too. I have been to Tonganoxie Days in the past, but not for a long time. I'm going to be enjoying my high school reunion in Neodesha this weekend, though, so I can't make it this year.
