The Festival of Books
Hello my Possum's! And welcome to another episode of Bubba's Sock Drawer! Lots been goin on this year for my Sock Drawer staff and crew. The story that unfolds here is as follows. Now I didn't know this Book Festival was happenin this paticular day in question. I was layin in bed that mornin about 7:00 A.M. I was havin my mornin coffee and watchin the early mornin news. They brought this story to the screen and it made me sit up and take note. The fall air was nice and cool and the sun was out! All in all a perfect day to go Book festivalin! The ladies you see in the picture above, first met us on our arrival. The very words out of one of the ladies mouths....and I quote..."It's the travelin Monkey!" I invited them to photo with me and be shown on my Sock Drawer blog!
I had never been to this festival before or for that matter had never heard of. It was across the street from the capital. All the white tents ya'll see house books for the festival. Many authors were present for book signins.
Oh yeah! Some more capital footage! Like ya'll have never seen it here in The Sock Drawer! (giggle out loud)
I decided to take a sit down for a moment to think this through. I happen to look across the street in the opposite direction from the capital and spotted T-Pac! I'm thinkin a night out at the theatre would be nice. Haven't been to see a broadway play in ages!
That's what I'm talkin about! Wicked is in town!
I step right up to the ticket booth and ask for two of the best seats ya got! I don't give and rats $%*^ what night it falls on! I'm aimin to see this play I've heard so much about and have heard it got four stars! I lay out The Sock Drawer Visa card and take home my two tickets!
NOW BACK ACROSS THE STREET to the Book festival and celebration of the written word.
The cameras follow me everywhere! Well I am a big Mega Star of 5 star proportions. I have to make appearances everywherey.
Mean Mary was there to sang us a song! Mean Mary is what she calls herself. I wasn't tryin to be mean by sayin that. She performs on a local channel 19. Music is always in the air here in Nashville.
A quick stop by the Farmers market on the way home brought homemade cheesecake and a chocolate moucha latte to my table top! I really enjoyed the Book Festival. Time to close The Sock drawer on another adventure. Bubba
