We learned that Wheeler County has a population of 1500 -- the whole county! It is not urban, suburban nor rural. It is classified as frontier. Who even knew there was such a classification? We are then, frontier women!
Every fourth of July weekend (since twelve yearS ago) Fossil hosts a Bluegrass festival. We attended most of the performances and had a great time.
This festival is a huge economic boost for the relatively poor town of Fossil, and some of the booths, meals, runs, and fun are provided by 4H, school, or other local organizations. Susan and I, being the frontier women we are, ran (Susan) and walked (me) the 5K race on Saturday morning and she was first in our age group (she ran) and I came in second (I walked). I don't know how many were in our age group (not many), but the age was 56 and over which put us in the same age group, otherwise I could have been first in my age group! We had fun, then went to the all you can eat breakfast!!! So much for the morning calorie burn.
