I Like Boll Weevils

I sure did have fun. I talked to one of the Simpson boys. He was trying to remember Sam Pechecko's name. I remembered it which surprised him because it's been a long time. He said Sam told him one time that Boll Weevil has "we" and "evil" in it. Sam sold Fords in Marshville where Heritage Propane is now. I bought a pickup from him. We got to talking about families that used to be movers and shakers around Marshville. Bryant and Maude Griffin's family, The Creech family, the Stegalls etc.

The music at the festival was good. The food was real good. The kids were plentiful and generally very well behaved.

I saw Sam and Mac. They have made themselves scarce around town lately. I see Sam more often in restaurants in Monroe than in Marshville these days. I saw Linda (not the embezzler) she was looking hot (not temperature). We had a nice but clumsy conversation. She and I had a "thing" a long time ago when we were both fresh behind the ears. It was a long and exciting romance which ended with an unpleasant "thud". She moved away and was married within 6 months. I moved away too but returned within a year. I didn't marry for another 2+ years. It's funny when you see someone you once had feelings for.

I left before dark. I wanted to watch a football game on TV.

I would like to say this was the WORSE Boll Weevel I have been to in years and I go every year-There was less vendors-less Booths-and right around dark-I had to round up my kids-there were so many fights with blacks gathering everywhere to watch the fights- I had to get my kids out of the line of fire-fortunately no shots fired-but the police was so busy keeping the fights and crowds contained it was unreal-go look at the roped off area at the laundrymat-I didn't witness but was told by a near by stander-that the fight caused that when 2 girls were going at it and one got throwed into the glass-this is a perfect example of Marshvagas-needless to say I will not be attending another Boll Weevel especially at night-I hope the Chamber Of Commerce decides to do something different with there money next year or shut it down when the rides close at six. It was awful!!!!

I am not prejudice all I am saying is no blacks or mexicans or very few were there all day and then when the band started-all races were there and the blacks were in groups watching and instigating the fights-Last year we were able to let our kids just go the the vendors get food kinda be free-not this year-

Dude, just bustin balls. Doing a little Sunday afternoon ribben. I agree. Why can't people just have a good time? Would not think Village Greene would draw such a diverse crowd! Going to see Widespread Panic next month and EVERYONE, all 20,000, will be enjoying and having a grand ol time.
