Yowza...Yowza...Yowza!

Hurry, hurry, hurry...step right up ladies and gentlemen...boys and girls of all ages to the Greatest Show on Earth...or at least in Warrenton Texas. The big top is up at Zapp Hall and the show will be starting in less than the shake of an elephant's tail.

Come see the vendors walk a tight rope of sanity...do a balancing act while perched precariously on a ladder....turn cartwheels...do backflips and land in the splits...all performed without the aid of a safety net and all just to please you. Don't blink and miss all the twists and turns of setting up shops in the middle of a cow pasture.
Listen to the barker as he beckons you to enter and be amazed. Watch with wonder as money, beer and inhibitions seem to disappear into thin air right before your very eyes! Smell the aromas coming from Royer's and hear the cacophony of sounds of laughter and music floating in the air from the Beer Garden. See the death defying trapeze artists fly through the air with the greatest of ease from the top of tents while hanging chandeliers. Delight in the Bubble Lounge...search for Little Egypt disguised as a shopper only to be unveiled at a moment's notice after several glasses of champagne.

Prepare to be dazzled at the array of goods gathered and brought from exotic locales to be purchased as souvenirs. Watch as tents full of merchandise are suddenly empty and the back of trucks just as suddenly full...all as if by magic! See and be amazed at how many women can fit in a suburban packed to the hilt with one of a kind treasures.

Laugh as the clowns and monkeys run amuck. Watch the ringmistress keep order and control of the wild animals roaming the grounds. See the lion tamer turn a roaring beast into a cat daddy with only a whip and two wheel dolly to protect her.
The three ring circus will kick off Friday March 26 with a melee of shoppers hurrying to be the first to see their favorite vendors followed by the Hoochy Koochy dancer enticing you into her tent for a Blog Party on Sunday March 28, until finally...culminating in the Junk Gypsy Prom Thursday April 1 and twilight shopping with complimentary Bellinis.

We only come to town twice a year so follow the parade of cars and trucks to join in the merriment of The Greatest Show on Earth before it...and all the good seats...are gone!

You never knew so much fun could be had in the dirt!

You make the world around you come alive with your wonderous description of your upcoming event. Wish I could be there...too far for a day drive...I be too pooped to putter after 28 hrs of driving...this chic does not fly...chicken, I guess. Have a grand time at your 'party' and have a sip for me. Only have fun, Fun, FUN...
Bless your Weekend of Hoopla

David said...

Whew! I was so relieved to see there are thunderstorms in the forecast for Wednesday and Thursday. I just wouldn't know how to load or unload a trailer without water dripping off my cap or pouring over my boots!

Sue said...

This IS the week I have to live my life through pictures. One day, I keep telling myself, one day I will be out to visit. Got my Country Roads family out there so that is second best. Hope the show is great for you Debbie, and I LOVE how Bella looks in the little dress. She is so cute!
Take care and wait, "can you do better on that price, I was thinking more like, say, HALF off"?

Oh I want to go! I have been there one time, it's a bit overwhelming, wish I knew what was the best day to go, where to start!

Know your too busy to give me any details, any one out there have any advice for this Austin lady?

Good luck, know you'll have a ball!

Don't let the show start without me!!!! I'm coming up on Friday...oh my gosh...less than 100 hours away! Yee Haw!
I want a drink, a hug, and a place to rest out of the sun for a while so I'll be trying to find you!!!! (which I don't think that will be a problem at all as you are always the center of the entertainment)
I'm so excited Debbie...I cannot wait!
What do I wear?
oh I need to go to the bank!
Tank up the Suburban and there ain't NO ladies riding with me...I need room for my new found goodies!!!
I can't forget my sunglasses...
and sunscreen...

Jodie (everything vintage) said...

I must NOT forget my camera and plenty battery life!

Jodie (everything vintage) said...

I mean like, who cares if I forget my underwear right? Just as long as I have my toothbrush!
;)

okay...I'll quit bothering you so you can pack your stuff and get on out there!!!!!

Malisa said...

Oh, I love FUN IN THE DIRT...except when it gets in your crack...you know, that crack between your toes! :)

I am beginning to think that Lurch would do ANYTHING to keep me from the Biggest Show On Earth! We can't seem to get past the freak show tent here at the hospital! Hope to see you, but if not, take lots of pictures and drink some cold beer for me!

I'm back home now, but we sure did have a good time hangin' out in your tent with that motley assortment of characters, didn't we? And I'm the motliest of all, so don't nobody get offended!

I love you, I love Cat Daddy, and I love my musical chair I got from y'all.

See ya again in the Fall if not sooner, my spelling kindred spirit! ;-)

XOXO,
Anne

What a delightful story! I've been avoiding all blogs that might mention Warrenton because I was so sad I could not be there with y'all. Now I get to look back and see all the wonderful stories and I'm not sad anymore. Thanks!
