#000000;">i want to take a moment and welcome, with arms wide open, all the carnival workers who have invaded our little community… it is such a pleasure to have you all here… and i have great confidence that you will all leave us with wonderful parting gifts that we will have to out and gather in an effort to restore our community back to some level of normalcy…. but hey, that’s besides the point….
#000000;">it’s rodeo time again in austin… and that means my life for the next two weeks will be chaos… nope, not going… but we live a mile from the expo center… this means that the carnie’s, cowboys, hookers, and goat ropers will be here, in our park…. and talk about some trashy folks….ok, not all of them…. but most of them! sheesh
#000000;">they tend to be up really really late into the night…. every night… they have some special juice or something that allows them to just rock on all day and all night…. they are loud, obnoxious… and they leave so much filth behind in the showers….
#000000;">they tend to forget that the rest of us LIVE HERE… this park is our home…. not a waste station for them… but that’s pretty much how it’s treated…. sad…..many folks complain about the biker rally’s… shit, bikers are so much more respectful, they watch out for our stuff, they clean up after themselves… yes they can get loud, and some have that same special juice that provides the “rock on” all night long stuff… but if go out and ask them to turn the music down a notch well, they apologize and promptly turn it down….
#000000;">not the carnie’s and goat ropers though
#000000;">i’m thinking i might have to check out the #000000;">swifty swine pig races…. (no, i did not make that up)
#000000;">#000000;">but i think i’d have more fun at the#000000;"> medicine man show…. maybe he might have some snake oil to help out with this MS crap…. (speaking of that… let me just say that ms is kicking my ass right now….in a big way)
#000000;">#000000;">we get our life back, and our community back on the 25th…. that seems so far away….
#000000;">sarcasm aside…. there are some performers that i would really like to go see… but…. alas… the crowds are too big, the people to mean/rude, parking is horrible…. so i’ll have to forego the adventure…. but check out performer list…. not too shabby!
