State Fair

I am feeling great relief now that I dropped off all of my items to the Great State Fair of Nebraska. I finished the socks last night. They are gorgeous. I used the Hederas pattern from Knitty. I didn't forget to enter Snowdrop, either. I have a good feeling about her. I didn't even wear my optimistic deodorant today! I did, however, wear some that smells like violets. I don't know how that is supposed to make me feel, maybe lucky. Here's what happened to me on my way to the fairgrounds.

My car was on empty. Lucky? We'll see. I went to the station down the street because it was a "cheap" $2.83. The tanker was there so I couldn't fill up. Then, I remembered the station at 48th and Randolph. It was $2.89. Oh well. I was about to run out of gas. I pulled in. I started to fill up. I read a little flier on the pump. "Customer Appreciation Day! 5 cents off each gallon! Free hotdogs! Free ice cream! Free drinks!" Are you kidding me? This IS my lucky day! I filled up in every way that I could and drove off feeling might glad that I chose the violet deodorant today.
