Welcome Back!

OK. I have been a very bad blogger. I have left you guys high and dry for a while. I am so very sorry. But, I do have a good excuse, if that is any consolation?

I was out covering our local county fair for my job at the newspaper. I was in the trenches of pig races, diaper derbies and senior citizens contests. (Not to mention fresh squeezed lemonade and corn dogs, too. ;) )

But, I am now back and ready to roll.

Today Kev, and my parents and myself are packing up the car and heading out to the eastern part of the state because Kev has a conference and we are going to make a little vacation out of it. My wonderful parents are coming along to keep me company while Kev is working.

Anyway, I will keep you guys updated while I am on the road. I just wanted to make sure that you knew I didn't forget about you!

I will leave you with this news story about an incident that happened at our fair. (Yes ladies and gentlemen, this made CBS news.):

Dirty Diaper Deployed by Angry Mother in Driving Dispute, Vehicle Gets Smeared Say Pa. Cops



A woman involved in a traffic dispute apparently decided to play dirty by smearing the contents of her child's soiled diaper all over the rear window of the vehicle in front of her.

Twenty-three-year-old Jessica Hollis is facing harassment charges after she reportedly got into the dispute Saturday night while leaving the Fayette County Fair, reports CBS affiliate KDKA.

Pennsylvania state troopers arrived on the scene after Melanie Campbell, the 36-year-old driver of the other vehicle, notified police she and Hollis had gotten into an argument exiting the fairgrounds around 10:50 p.m.

It allegedly escalated when Hollis got out of her car and rubbed the diaper all over Campbell's rear window, taking road rage to a messy new low.

Campbell felt it was her duty to notify police.

I kept my eyes open for you this year, but I didn't see you! Fair traffic was horrible. I ended up turning around and going through Dunbar to get home. I just wish we could get into the news for better things :-/
