this weekend i'm scooping ice cream at the GP Stompede. think Calgary Stampede, only a lot smaller and not nearly as polished. the parade for this thing had a total of 10 vehicles and 5 horses (the 10 vehicles includes the 2 street sweepers following the horses). so far, it's been fun. right out of our little ice cream trailer window is stan the psychic. he's an interesting guy. maybe i'll get a chance to chat with him a bit. and the community of 'carny's' is an interesting one. it's got its stereotypes (which are obvious) but there's a definite community and family mentality out there too. its great watching the different games and rides and food stand workers interact with eachother. in a strange way, i wonder what effect Jesus could have in a place that obviously needs Him. i've never pictured Jesus as the guy running the ferris wheel.
i'll give some updates as the weekend 'rolls' on.
