A town's Centenial Affair and a GrandGirl's Award

Hello, all, 

Some friends of ours live in a small town about 30 miles from us and their town was having it's
 100 year CENTENNIAL.
 We went over to help celebrate....eat....and listen to some pretty good music.



and, speaking of MUSIC...






Many of you may not have ever heard of the country and western singer,
WAYLON JENNINGS

but he was well known around here.



The food vendors were selling everything from 
roasted corn ...
nachos...
snow cones...
tacos...

I really, REALLY wanted to support their fire department but....
TURKEY LEGS are sure not one of my favorite things to eat...
no sir.....not at all.
sooo....we just gave them a little donation.


People brought folding lawn chairs and sit up in front of the large stage
where the bands would be performing...

The wind was blowing, at times pretty hard,
but it wasn't so hot as it has been lately..

"Mr. Sweet...you are looking cute in your straw hat...."
:)



"...hey...don't 'cha know you can't get TOO close to an olden woman with a camera....????"
...wrinkles, ya know.

I didn't get a good photo of the stage with the band...
see it in the background...?

The young man singing is on his way to NASHVILLE to sing and write songs..
GOOD LUCK to him.

 
 They had a large building just full of all kinds of cuteness...
 pants
tops
purses
hats.........

lots of jewelry and I came home with this pretty wire-wrapped turquoise colored cross.

The heavy silver chain belonged to my mama and I wear it just about any time I walk out of my house.

We had a really good time and didn't get home until pretty late.

It was about 2 p.m. before we got to bed...I was up at 7 and Mr. Sweet didn't come alive until about 9.......:))

We had a great time....

         LOVE, bj



 This is BRYNNA ASHLEIGH, one of my beautiful granddaughters...

We are so proud of her and the Ropes Varsity Cheerleaders!

They won the SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE AWARD. 

YAY....way to go, Brynna....
We love you !!

I love fairs and outdoor events. Look like you had a cute time. Both of you look cute. Congrats to your grand. Our senior grandson was mentioned in U of K's high school senior football "Players to look out for." He has been promised a partial scholarship and maybe a full one based on this senior year of play. I love being a grand. In Jan. we will be great grands. Woot Woot

Are you having a daily change my blog header/style thing going on? I hope we are not supposed to have a fav?....I love the one right now, but then again, by the time you read this, it could be different!!

W. Latane Barton said...

That Brynna is beautiful. So proud of her for her cheerleading abilities.

You and Mr. Sweet sure had a good time... I am so with you about not finding turkey legs something you'd want to eat. yuck.

Have a great weekend.

Shelia Williamson said...

Hi BJness! Oh, another beautiful grand daughter. Like I said, the apple didn't fall too far from the tree. You spread your beautiful looks to all of your children and grands! :) I love these little small town happenings! Looks like fun and the cross is so lovely. What a delicate chain too. There you've gone and changed your header. You're the header queen. That doesn't sound right, does it? :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Beverly said...

I know you are proud of her. She gets her good looks from her grandma. In fact, you and Mr. Sweet are both looking good.

Not heard of Waylon??? I'm from Bakersfield CA.. :) Every heard of the song "The Streets of Bakersfield?" I can hear Waylon singing in my head!
Your Granddaughter is adorable!

Lulu said...

It looks like you had one of those outings that is easy to enjoy, and I do hope Waylon' music was playing at every turn!

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

I can just feel the pride bursting from you! Nothing could warm a grandmother's heart more than a granddaughter's stellar performance!

Theresa said...

Congrats to your Brynna on the award! She sure is pretty:) Sounds like you two youngsters had a wonderful time! Thanks for taking me along! Have a blessed day dear BJ, HUGS!

Debbie said...

And yet another gorgeous granddaughter. Your family really is a good looking bunch. Do you know that?

I would have loved the Centennial because that's the kind of thing that jazzes me. (And I DO know Waylon. I am a country music lover from wayyyyyy back._)

Kara said...

What a wonderful time. I just love festivals like that. I also love Waylon Jennings even though I am from New England and don't listen to a lot of country music. He's an exception. I will follow you back on blog lovn...I don't really use google+ because it's such a pain in the neck. I find it very indirect.

Ann said...

My hubby would have headed straight for the turkey legs but I'm like you not so much! OH yes we know who Waylon Jennings is, used to listen to his music quite a bit. I do enjoy fairs like this one also. Darling granddaughter and great accomplishment. One of our grands just got back from cheerleading camp at Kansas University taught by the KU cheerleaders-what a treat for her.

SmilingSally said...

You stayed out until 2AM . . . ! Wow, I'm impressed! AND, you woke up at 7AM . . . more impressed.

What a fun time you and Mr. had. I'm glad he keeps on a hat in that nasty sun. I nag (ahem) remind Johnny to put on his hat when taking his morning walk.

Now, I have seen some gorgeous grandchildren, and you certainly have a bunch of them. Just darling.

Carol L McKenna said...

Fun post and grand daughter is beautiful ~ Congrats to her and great photos ~ ^_^

Maureen Wyatt said...

Congratulations to that cutie pie Brynna! Of course we know Waylon all the way up here in Canada. Love the cross but I'd pass on the turkey legs, too!

Luna Miranda said...

Huldra said...

Stacy said...
