Between keeping up with a 2 year old, trying to clean out the garage and the fact that, Cherry Festival is going on this week, I haven’t had much time to think of anything to blog, so, I’m gonna re-post one from last year at this time… It’s still true! BIG HUGS, Steph

Oh the joy of binges!
The past 4 days have been busy, hectic and filled with me binging. Yes, I admit it, I have a "habit"… one that costs me between 8.00 and 12.00 a day.
Once a year, for 4 days, I throw caution to the wind, I let go of all inhibitions, and I binge… seriously binge!
My addiction… fresh, real Lemonade!
I know, I know, I could make it myself, but, I’m too dang lazy. LOL Once a year our little town has the Cherry Festival, which means carnival rides, vendors, music, dancing, antique cars, parades, and FOOD, yes that wonderful, slam those arteries closed just looking at it, cost you an arm and a leg for one good buffalo burger, county, country and state Fair kinda food.
This means that my favorite older couple who have a traveling food booth will be there, they specialize in fresh squeezed lemonade, and are my choice of "dealers". They didn’t even have to get me hooked by giving me free samples! I willingly gave in, gave all, and will continue to do so.
OH how I love that sweet, tangy blend in a big glass…. even if it is 4.00 for a large!
Last night was the final night of the Cherry Festival, everything was closing down at 11pm. I found myself feeling panicked and anxious at 10:30pm…. I couldn’t stand it, I had to go back for my one last "hit".
I got there at 10:45pm, and ordered, "I need one more large before you leave," I said. She shakes her head and says, "Honey, don’t you see the sign?" It said,… OUT of Lemonade!
She said they ran out about an hour before I had got there!
Now, did I take that bit of info calmly and go home? HECK no, true addict that I am, I tried to remember what other booth I had seen that was selling lemonade…
I had come to get lemonade and I wasn’t going home without some!
I wanted it, I NEEDED it, and I was gonna get it!
It wasn’t as good, the glass wasn’t as big, and it cost about the same, but damn it, I had one more glass!
With shaking hands I paid the Man. Glancing around to make sure no one I knew saw me, I ran to my car to enjoy my ‘fix’ in private… (OK so I made that part up, about shaking hands and the car, but it adds to the story) LOL
Ahhhhh sweet mystery of life, I have found you…. LOL BIG HUGS, Steph
