Spindletop Spin 2008

Saturday was the 3rd Annual Spindletop Spin which raises money for the Jefferson County Bar Association Pro Bono Program. Each year, our law firm mans a rest stop and directs traffic at several intersections.

The first year, I was an intersection person. However, last year I was given the task of organizing the rest stop. We shall all assume that my management of the previously mentioned intersection (click the links above) had nothing at all to do with my being moved to the position of Rest Stop Czar. This year we had a winter wonderland theme with a snow cone machine and everything. Several people have told me we were a hit which makes me very happy.

With the exception of trying to remove the snowman decoration from one of the portable potty doors WHILE SOMEONE WAS STILL IN THERE, I think I did a pretty good job as Czar-ina. As I was noisily tearing tape and pulling on the potty's door, I felt something pull from the other side. The guy told me, as he carefully opened the door to leave the porta-outhouse, "I thought Santa Clause was coming to town."

Here's a slideshow...

Notes to Friends:

  • My friend Dick played at Antone's for the free spaghetti dinner and we got there so late, we only got to hear a couple of songs. Here's a link to Dick's band's MySpace page.
  • Jen and Becca! Sorry I missed you guys Saturday night. I kept falling asleep on the couch. Next time, for sure.

Ok, I have never seen pickles or snow cones at a rest stop. Fabulous! And maybe I've been living here to long, but DANG those are some really big packages of Nutter Butters and Oreos!

Baby Sis - As we discussed, there should be big mirrors by the drive-thru speaker. That would make me order a salad more often.

Jen - ;)

Just - The pickles were one of the first things to go. We'll definitely get more pickles next year.
