COUSIN CAMP goes bowling. . . .

After an insanely hot day of fighting flies on the Redneck Riviera, we decided to make our way to "The Strike Zone" in nearby Nicholasville. Yep-- the bowling alley. Now Nicholasville is no ordinary town. It's a virtual NASCARville. In other words there is a 95% chance you ARE a redneck if you live in Nicholasville. Now, before you locals take offense, consider my prior posts where I am beginning to reckon with the reality of my own progeny succumbing to red-neck-hood. That's Erica (sister #2) with quite the form. Below is Chase (1) her son. And also Allie (Missie's oldest). Lets just say it would have been better if I had my vlog going. There's a little strike zone celebration going on in the other pic. That's Eliza in the foreground.

But the best moment came when Eliza, like a bull coming out of the chute-- only a few rolls into the first frame, barrelled down the lane. And then we all held our collective breath as Missie (sister #1) went after her. Anyone remember how slick those bowling lanes are? Let's just say it was one of those moments we wish we had the video rolling. A moment of painful hilarity.

Speaking of Redneck. . . .Consider this next photo. You'll have to upend your monitor to make it out. But those are deck stairs. On the end of the string are tied milk bone dog biscuits. Look carefully and you can make out David between the steps. While I'd like to attribute this trick to the influence of the Arkansas cousins, I'm afraid it's David's genius. I caption it "Deck Fishing for Dog."

Cap this all off with a visit to the emergency room tonight. Just after supper Tiffani noticed a large swelling growth on Samuel's neck (8 months). it was shocking. We spent the rest of the night in the ER in Lexington. He's going to be fine. It's some kind of cyst that will likely require surgery. We'll know more later this week. So remember us-- esp. Samuel in your prayers. Cousin Camp must go on!

First, the Walt Family Vacation, and now Cousin Camp at the Redneck Riviera. Ah, what will summer be like without these high peaks of anticipation?
What's in store for the Fall? As a one-time resident of the Riviera in question, I attest to it's "NASCARville."
JD, if your progeny are succumbing to it, they probably got it genetically, and not from The Tiff.
