Just Another Saturday

I was talking to my neighbor and she told me there was a Home and Garden Expo at the fairgrounds today. Being a sucker for anything with the word 'garden' in the title I knew I had to go.

Unfortunately we didn't have this conversation until 3:00pm so by the time I got to the fairgrounds it was 3:30 and they closed at 4:00pm. It was pretty obvious most of the vendors were not going to wait that long as they were tearing down when I got there.

Yup, almost everything was gone. Except this,

Of course. There are two types of animals I severely dislike; monkeys and llamas. I don't run into too many monkeys in most of my travels but I seem to draw these doggone llama/alpaca things like flies. These two mean tempered things were the last creatures left from the petting zoo. My lucky day.

And I know that somewhere on the fairgrounds their evil little monkey jockeys were just waiting for me. My nightmares will have material for months.

LLamas spit and monkeys bite!

It's the flung monkey poop that frightens me.
