A Coupla Thangs…..

I went to the Grange Fair last night.  While I was watching my granddaughter and her mother ride one of the rides, the ride operator came over to me and asked me what was the most number of children I’d ever heard of one woman having.  Anywhere else, this might have been a weird question, but not at the Grange Fair.  So I guessed 12.  He then proceeded to tell me about his mother who gave birth to 30, count ’em, 30 children.  He had 4 sisters and 25 brothers.  He went on to talk about grandkids (80) and more, but my mind was already blown by the thought of this poor woman having THIRTY kids.  Just stop and think about every ramification this entails….conception (possibly the only time this woman had any fun in her life…..or not), morning sickness, delivery, feeding, clothing…if this woman is not nominated for sainthood…who could be?

Cowboy Monkey Rodeo is coming back to Medlar Field at Lubrano Park this Thursday night when the Spikes take on the Batavia Muckdogs.  If you’ve never seen little monkeys in little cowboy outfits riding on dogs and herding goats….well, you’ve got to see it to believe it.
