Wednesday, September 11: Mt. Morris, IL-4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Lot: Moose Lodge grounds
Since our planned route out of town was blocked off by construction, Danny found an alternate path to get us on the right track.
Today's lot set up was a little strange. There was a little road splitting the lot into two parts. The tent and semis were on one side, and most of the trailers were on the other side.
It wasn't too much of an issue though, because I was able to move my truck to the back yard for easier prop loading and unloading.
Danny and Ryan spent some time this morning working on some new wooden props. I kept managing to show up to help just as they were finishing up.
What can I say, it's a gift!
The people we met during the Intermissions tonight were nice, and a couple of them had very funny things to say.
One grizzled gentleman told us that we could make a lot of money at Walmart. I'm not sure what exactly he was referring to, but in a few years I might look into that advice!
One frazzled mother with a small army of children had me, Ryan, and Peter in stitches the whole time we were around her.
She came over initially to ask how much the books were, and then she wrangled her brood to fetch some money.
Upon returning, one of her boys yelled, "We've got the money!", to which his mother replied, "Shut up!"
One little boy kept poking Ryan's face, so the woman admonished him, "Stop touching his face! If he wanted you to touch his face, he'd say, 'Please, touch my face'!"
When we went to take a photo with all the kids, one of the boys started to climb on the seat wagon so he wouldn't be covered up. His mom stormed over, pulled him down, and yelled, "God **** it! Do you want to be put in the circus!?"
It was an exciting meeting, to say the least....
