Cars and Macs.

House of scarlet.

For the last several years, we have visited the town of Somerset for its annual antique fair. Although we didn't buy anything (again), I still consider it one of the better shows, as the dealers as a whole sell quality collectibles, and not stuff they found lying by the side of the road on the way there. Plus, the local church sets up a tent and sell hot dogs for a buck and homemade slices of any kind of pie that you want. Well, at least they used to - this year they didn't sell any pie but instead set up a Fudgie Wudgie tent. I don't know what focus group they consulted to determine that fudge would be a better seller than homemade pecan pie because, in my opinion, they were sorely mistaken.

There is also a car show with both antique and kit cars in all the colors of the rainbow. They were so shiny that you could see the clouds and the sun reflecting from their hoods!

On the way back, I suggested that we eat at the Big Mac museum on Route 30. We rarely eat at McDonald's (We are a Wendy's family), but I thought that it would be fun to see. It turned out that it's just a regular McDonald's with some extra memorabilia. My Big Mac was good, though.

Lastly, if you didn't watch the opening ceremonies of the Summer Olympics in Beijing, you really missed something. I don't follow the games, but for laughs, I try to catch the opening ceremonies because the host countries come up with the oddest presentations. Not the Chinese. While their government may have ugly policies, the people of China clearly have mastered the concept of beauty, as they put on a breathtaking, goose-pimple inducing spectacle. It seriously made the Super Bowl half time show look like a high school musical.
