The BEARS Are Back In Town!


Now Hook is on...I tell you...

Hmmm...first you see the major news channel vans heading south toward us....then among the pick up trucks and farm equipment you begin to see corvettes, cadillacs, mercedes, and lexuses. Then a few days later stop signs begin sprouting up, gas lines are longer than usual, and though we certainly have our fair share of residents who could really use a retest on their driving skills, there just seemed to be a whole new level of driving recklessness. Then there was the sudden color change in town! Someone has sprayed it Orange & Blue. Everywhere you go that is all you see! Of course the sure give away is when you run out to your Super WalMart at midnight to just grab something you can't wait until morning for, looking so incredibly attractive with no make-up on of course and wearing your SouthPark pants and a big t-shirt and you turn the corner of the aisle with you cart & run into the "Testosterone Zone"...well Jose Canesco may not have named him but you & your cart actually bounces backwards down the aisle! HA! Men like this are just not grown down here, even with all the pesticides used.  

Oh no...didn't I put it on my Calendar? Why didn't someone remind me? Sigh....Ok, Ok, don't get me wrong it is great to have the Chicago Bears stomping all over my camp ground. It is great for our businesses here and the kids just love it...ok, the big kids too (I seem to recall meeting Chris Zorich last time with the beau so...). We also seem to have benefitted with new growth in housing & hey we now have 2 new Super WalMarts, another McDonalds, a Buffalo Wild Wings, a 2nd Jimmy Johns, a PetsMart, and I hear Culvers is opening in Nov, Linens N Things & Dick's Sporting Goods is coming. This is just a bit much in a small period of time for us. If we would just get a Portillos...oh no...that might not be a good idea! YIPES!

I better take the highway to school for my last week...going through town will be a nightmare! Besides apparently I can roll over my own SUV I don't need any crazy driver helping me out! HA! I know, I can laugh about it now but...

Well, I'll keep you updated on this year's unique craziness along the way.
