Steve made a difficult choice this weekend: stay in town for the 29th Annual Striped Bass Festival
or run a marathon in Madrid, Spain
. For the first time ever, the festival will feature carnival rides
. Who cares if Pamela (our autistic sweetie pie) is the only member of the family who can stomach them! Local beauty queens
grace the parade as well as dancers, marching bands, motorcycles, and politicians. Everyone turned out, including a few, lone Republicans
who thought entering a parade in yellow-dog Democrat country
might earn a few votes. This festival is so popular another blogger
beat us to the blogpost! Even a few lone Republicans running for office in yellow-dog Democrat country entered in the parade.
Did Steve stay home for all of the fun and festival? No! Tomorrow, he will be sweating it out in Madrid for 26.2 long-hot-weary miles. Tammy put together this short video clip, so that Steve can see what he missed! And, say a prayer for him, folks!
