Oh Boy!...

Tomorrow starts the beginning of the annual Boyne City Mushroom Festival.

I'm marching in the parade dressed as a spore.




Actually, there is no parade. I will probably avoid the whole thing altogether unless I have a hankering for funnel cake, which is likely.

I don't know if you remember, but Berwyn,the Chicago suburb that was the town of my birth, has the annual Hoby festival, honoring mushrooms.
Maybe you can walk around in the costume anyway. Until you get arrested.

Hey, JY, Mr. Ex was born in Berwyn.

Chris, you would make a beautiful spore. You should reconsider attending the festival!

Boy, I've had mushrooms at a few festivals in my time.

Germans can't resist funnel cake. It's in our DNA.

Spooney said...

Where I grew up in Massachusetts we didn't have funnel cake we had what they call fried dough. I think they are almost the same thing.

I only stayed there long enough to be born, at MacNeal Memorial, then left.

dude, I think you've got to be ON mushrooms to wanna dress like that.

BALD GURU KID: "don't try to attend the parade, that's impossible. Instead, try to realize the truth of the situation"

SOME GUY: "what's that?"

BALD GURU KID: "there is no parade."

Sorry Some Guy... JY and I have this conversation going....

JY
Same hospital... different year (1960)

He also moved on down the road to Westchester...

big move.

Uh, what was this post about again?

Let's ignore the spore. Was anyone born in Dayton, Ohio? 'Cuz I was.

Johnny Yen said...

With apologies to Chris...

Anon Blogger-
I think that was one of the only hospitals in the area back then. We lived in Lagrange when I was born. Funny, because I ended up back there for high school.

Huh-- my incompetent principal lives in Westchester. Maybe there's something in the water there...

Chris - I just love these little get-together's you have!

Thanks a million! Stop by my place any time.

Oh, and thanks for not serving any Westchester water. I hear it turns people into great big wrinkly assholes.
