She's Got A Tapedeck in Her Tractor
The plan was to spend a week around a swimming pool in Palm Springs for the Fourth of July Week but when the weather predictions started calling for 120-degree temperatures, we changed our minds fast and stayed in town.
At the Lone Star Saloon on Saturday afternoon, the weekly $9 beer bust had been commandeered by a gay rodeo association trying to raise funds with auctions of weird items such as a monster Scooby-Doo plush toy that was literally falling apart.
The crowd was also subjected to a couple of handsome young men in cowboy drag pretending they were country-western singers...
...and a drag queen lipsyncing to Lorretta Lynn...
...though she looked more like Ronee Blakley in Altman's masterpiece, "Nashville," after Barbara Jean goes insane.
