Round-up seems to have been a great success again this year. I heard several residents comment that parts of it were “the best we’ve ever seen” and it seems that the parade, arts and crafts fair, the Queen’s Court, the Rodeo and the music and dancing were all enjoyed by everyone who was out at the events.

Sometimes things aren’t as they appear. “Mare-zee-dotes An-dozey-dotes An-liddle-lamzey-divey. A-kiddley-divey-too Wouldn’t you?” That’s an actual song with real words for lyrics.
