Hey DFW Friends Who want to go to Canton

To all my friends and acquaintances who live the DFW area:

I am tentatively planning a trip to Canton on Labor Day weekend, Saturday to be exact, ONLY IF THE WEATHER IS BELOW 95 DEGREES. If you watch the weather and it says it's going to be over 95, I will wait to go in Oct or Nov because I hate to sweat when I shop.

Please understand I am no expert on Canton (no idea where certain booths are), but mentioned I am wanting to go and had some people say they might want to go, too. So how fun would it be to all go there on the same day and meet somewhere? Friends AND junk. I can think of nothing better.

If you are wanting to go, just let me know and if you need to follow me, I only live about an hour and a half away from Canton. We can meet in Ennis and convoy our happy junky butts over there. If you can't make it Labor Day weekend, I am definitely going back in Oct or Nov.

I am crossing my fingers that it will be somewhat cool on the 30th.

Seeing as how I don't think I could get much further away from DFW area, I won't be able to attend your fun get together! I wish I could!

Jill,
Lets just say Victoria's Secret is out of the bag - when the bras off they drag the floor (LOL) Hooters dont want that - hell, I dont want that.
I cant plan for that weekend cause the anniversary with the freakin husband (dammit) and its 24 years - whatever. gotta be with him.

Georgie,
I will meet ya - just say the time and place. Heck if y'all decide to come to the beach you can even stay here. I should be done with ALL THE FREAKIN HOME IMPROVEMENT CRAP by then.

IM-Canton is in east Tx. If your sister lives in dallas, she will probably know. You can mapquest dallas to canton and see exactly.
Gdog- so come the fri night before, spend the night and leave sun am. Also, Mapquest your house to Ennis. You won't get lost...much
Amy- it's the weekend before the first monday of the month. Monday happens to be the 1st and the first monda, so it's labor day weekend.
3D- ok i love you again since you sag and damn that husband of yours! There is always the next month tho.

I really want to go to Canton, but I'm not sure about this Labor Day weekend. I will call you if I can make it. Right now it looks as if I will spend this weekend and maybe some of next up at the lovely school, as I get ready for my class. It doesn't help to get you teaching materials the Friday before the Monday school starts. But I can wing it pretty good, since I've done it so long. I still have your phone number so I'm going to try and text you. I may go to Waxahachie this afternoon. Need to get a few things. If I can't make canton the 30th, I would love to go in Nov. I guess you saw that comment before.

I just tried to send you a text AND I must have screwed up putting your phone number in my phone , because it has toooo many numbers. Imagine that, me screwin something up. Anyway, I'm going to try again. I'll try to e-mail you my phone number.

I would go in October. But, it's still WAY too hot to go now.

Sidney said...

OK, I haven't been around for a while, what with school startin' and all, and I REALLY wanna go, but since my money tree is about to up and croak on me, I think maybe I should wait. Hopefully, in October, it will have revived enough to stop my phone from ringing off the hook with everybody wanting mine (and TWO ex-husband's) money.....
