Every week I can't wait till this time of the week, Friday! No matter how busy or stressful a Friday is I always have the thought of the weekend in the back of my head to push me through the storm.

The day that I always look forward to most is Monday of the fair because it's the derby day! Most of the out of towner's are gone back home and the locals crowd around the ring and watch cars crash into each other for 4 hours. It's great! This year was especially exciting because we had two friends in the derby; Adam and Kyle.
The guys with their derby cars! Loved the Mountainview colors!
I was so excited seeing their cars drive into the ring to go head to head with 6 other cars. When the cars got going I started to get mad at the other participants hitting the boys. Eventually their cars had enough crashing and quit. First Kyle was out at the far end and Adam right in the middle of the action getting continuously hit even with his white flag out the window.
When I try to describe my feelings for the fair to "city" friends they just don't understand the excitement I feel. They think it's silly and a waste of time to be standing around a dirty area, shivering because of the fall dampness. To me however I couldn't love it more. Country music, great food and chatting with new and old friends! What else could a small town girl ask for?
