This is our new Sonic...sits on the ground of the old Dairy Queen. The consensus is the cooks need a little more practice. Although I'm perfectly happy with the corn dog and the ice cream cone which is all I've had so far.
The new Filly's and Phish restaurant is open now too. I ran in and got a couple of menu's and we weren't too impressed. Pretty high dollar for West. I have already been to the new Auto Parts store. They had Freon on sale for $4.59 so I got one. Now all I need to do is catch Vincent before it's beer thirty and have him put in it.
There is a new business in town too. Called Wish Upon A Tea Cup. They come to your home or any place you choose and provide princess dresses, fairy dresses, tiaras, jewelry, boas, wings, wands, fairy dust, vanity, throne, glamours session, princess coronation, crafts, games, real china, candelabras, etiquette, chair covers, tea cakes, favors and more. Hot damn...I want one of them parties when I turn 66. I want to wear a tiara and wings and maybe a boa. Bucky's Bargain Barn has a 25% off sale going on. I love saying Bucky's Bargain Barn..... a lot.
They're having a BBQ Dinner, Auction and Raffle for Colton Taylor who is a 16- year old West High student and is facing open heart surgery.It's going to be this Saturday. I'm thinking about donating some books for the auction. I have some great sports books that might bring some money in for him.
St. Mary's cheerleaders won several awards at the National Cheerleaders Association Cheery Camp. They were the most improved, and the Jr. High Champion Chant team. They also received a bid to compete at the national competition.
Fifty years ago the average motor vehicle travelled 9,571 miles in 1957, almost 1/2 of it in cities and got 12.47 miles per gallon of fuel. Also 50 years ago the Evangelical Unity of the Czech-Moravian Brethren In North America changed its name to the Unity of the Brethren. Gee..wonder why?

The West Shilling Pipe and Steel Junior Girls softball team took 1st place in the District 5 Tournament. The Mobile Auto Glass won first at District T-Ball Tourney. We rock.
The 63rd Annual West Championship Rodeo is set for August 14th and 15th at the West Rodeo Grounds. The parade is going to be at 4:30 p.m. on August the 14th. It used to be in the morning and it was so short that by the time I was focusing the camera for the second photo, it was over with ..remember last year?...One picture ..ha.. They will have the Mutton Bustin', Kids Calf Scramble and this year a new event. Rodeo Clown Dress Up Contest for children 10 and under.
That should traumatize some kids for life. Arghghghghg, Billy Bob's dressed like a killer clown ma!
Well, West News comes out tomorrow again. But it's pretty slow, so unless something earth shattering happens...I'll skip the news.
I've been stopping in at Family Dollar a lot lately (allergy meds) and Inky misses hearing all the news about you guys and I'm thinking about having him come over some day and have him do a 'a day in the life of Inky.'....he'd love that.
The Yorkie Poo got groomed and looks like a $1,000 dog. He's so sweet...but he and Annie are getting to be buddies so I am sleeping with the lights on now. I have some pictures of before and after, but also want to take some other pictures so when I'm done I'll post them. I think I'm getting addicted to Zyrtec...that stuff makes me sleep like a baby. But just in case your interested the Family Dollar generic Zyrtec works just like speed. I took one and stayed up till 6:30 a. m...Gritting my teeth and twitching all the while...shit's nasty.
Oh by the way..happy birthday mr. president.
