I was trapped.

I had planned a nice trip to London for Friday and Saturday but you know what I couldn’t leave my small Buckingham town. The fair had closed down the center of the town for 48 hours, which turned out to mean that the bus would skip the town completely.

I’m not sure about everywhere else but in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the fair affects two things, traffic, and your attitude when you have to pay 20 dollars for parking.

Not only did the bus not come but every cab and taxi were either not picking up or their line was busy. There is no Uber in Buckingham! Like where have I landed where Uber is not a thing.

But alls cool that ends cool, I saved a ton of money by staying in my small room that they call a dorm room. However, I did get out to see what this 15 hour fair was all about.

It was cute, the kids had fun and almost everyone in the town seemed to be out and about. Walking through the crown I could hear parents trying to keep up with their kids and kids moving as fast as they can to make it in time for the ride.

Although not my scene, I give it a 4.5 out of 5 for the fairness of the games. They were yelling the same thing no matter where you went, “EVERYONE’S A WINNER”, which turned out to be true.

I didn’t stay for the fair because I was going to what turned out to be a beautiful concert on the outskirts of town in this little bar. A very talented singer named Gemma Doyle performed and I believe that woman gave her soul to angels in exchange for her voice. It was amazing.

The crown was very happy to have her there and she also sang happy birthday to one of the members of the staff. She is a survivor of a terminal illness and found that singing was the one thing that lifted her spirits while she was fighting.

She was the sweetest person and was a lovely end to the day.

Even those I wasn’t able to go to London it was still a nice time and I didn’t have to travel far. But I’m trying again for London this week, I need to get out of here. 🙂
