So, I just found out that some family (a set of in-laws), are going to visit us for the fourth of July holiday…..yea!
It just so happens that this father-in-law, (I have two sets….divorced parents on my husband’s side…..ooh twice the fun), is quite the gambler and since he lives in the “sticks”, and doesn’t get to experience the joy of going to either the horse races or dog races……guess what? we get to take him when they visit!
My husband was looking up the schedule for the horse races on their web-site, and during the summer they have much more than just racing. They have all kinds of live bands, etc., in order to attract more people, plus they add cheap beer to seal the deal (50 cent draft).
Well we have a real treat for the Fourth of July this year……as he reads aloud, “Post-race fireworks extravaganza, face painters and balloon artists, and…….what? Performance by Team Ghost Riders featuring 4 monkeys riding dogs and herding sheep”.
Needless to say I’m dying laughing….and confirming by asking (to make sure I heard right)….”What are the monkeys doing?”
To show that I am not making this up, you may check out their web-site:
Wow, I can’t wait!
