music, dancing. All I want is a fuzzy cat at pound a mole. So I play and
lose. Spencer plays and wins but they give the fuzzy cat to the other guy
anyway. This Fair isn't Fair! So Spencer's looking for models and we see
4 people at the fair who may be interested - 2 couples. They both would

This already is a much more relaxed place and the first place we go is
Betty's Bad Clothes...totally relaxed coffee shops, used clothes, book
hangout, where Virginia presides. She is so relaxed hanging out listening
to music and talking-- she gives me a PBR. I buy a dress and a purse and
we find 2 models at the bar. I love them!!! They're from Athens, Ohio,
and travelling, hanging.
Explorers- very cool. The guy is big and will
