The Texas State Fair was cancelled this year for the first time since WWII. My daughter attended last year, but I haven't been since I was a baby, and of course, I don't remember it. I don't like crowds, but I would like to see it. They had about 2.5 million visitors last year over the 3-4 weeks it was open. It wasn't supposed to start until September this year, but alas, it's not going to happen.
On another note:
I was looking through some articles on a news site the other day, and I came across an article that said, "Take your tractor to school" day, so I had to click on it. I had never heard of this! Seems like many rural communities have this tradition, and it is often associated with FFA (Future Farmers of America). My son was in FFA, but not many people around here actually live on real farms or have real tractors. I did see that a little town in Texas has this tradition, but it mostly occurs in the Midwest. How cool is that?
Today is Bastille Day in France. I wonder how they are celebrating this year. Normally, there would be military parades, concerts, dances, and fireworks. This holiday commemorates the storming of the Bastille (where political prisoners were held) and is seen as the beginning of the French Revolution. I never knew that they stormed the Bastille on a search for gun powder and ammunition for the weapons they had looted. I learn something new every day!

And changing gears a little bit, this puppy was too cute!

And if I have a dog funny, I have to have a cat funny...
Have a great week!
