This is always a good show with plenty of other attractions all in the same area.

:flag: A lot of years ago I took a McCartney Produce 48' reefer trailer up to the park where the festival was going to be, with the order of banana's. My orders were to put it where ever they wanted it, and drop it for them to store the ingredients to make this huge banana pie. Needless to say where they wanted it was impossible to get in without tearing the mud flaps off and having to jump a curb while jackknifing the trailer. The spot could be accessed from the next street over but involved driving across the freshly mowed park grounds. They didn't want tracks and I wasn't about to tear up one of our new trailers. I made 3 calls to my boss and he didn't respond to them and by now I was 3 1/2 hours in a hour job. So I got in the truck and drove around the block and made a left turn and spotted the trailer. All the time I was setting it down I caught hell from the top to the bottom of the powers that be. When I finished I got in the truck and left. I got a "warm" reception when I got back to Paris. I tried to explain but they weren't hearing it. I went out on the yard and went to work and tried not to go anywhere near the office the rest of the week. When I went to work the next Monday I got called back to the office and I thought I was going to get fired. The same 3 guys were there and I walked in thinking this is it , when to my surprise my boss said you did a good job putting that trailer in. We have always dropped it along the curb in the street, not in the park by the pavilion. He said I would have been pissed if you had tore the flaps off trying to jump that curb. I said well, what about all the ones in Fulton that was raising cane with me. He laughed and said we told them we fired you on the spot when you got back and you don't work here anymore. We'll send somebody else to pick up the trailer, now go to work. :exit:

Sorry about the novel. This is the condensed version.

It is a good show. The best local show around here. And the trophies are awsome!

I would love to go and see the show, but I can't leave Naomi here alone. Maybe next year.

If you're talking about the rat rod wrecker, I'll be there if I can walk at all.
