Friday Fences # 2
This is @ Camp Alta Mons in Shawsville. I took this photo in the fall when we went hiking past this place to see the falls. Not too far from here is where we saw those cute baby bear cubs which if you don't remember you can read about it right here!
You can rent this old farmhouse for large groups to camp in.

Last night Nick and I went to see the Cirque Du Soleil show here in Roanoke. What a fabulous show! Before the show they ask you to please turn off all your cell phones because it could be dangerous to the performers as they work on light cues. Almost everyone obliged except for one rude woman who sat 2 rows in front of us. Every 5 minutes, not exaggerating here either, she would turn her phone on and scan through facebook. It was easy for us all to see what she was looking at. And she wasn't even a young kid, she was a grown woman, 50 years old easily, so she definitely should have known better. She'd stay on her phone for a couple of minutes, enough time to check all her "important" notifications, then turn it off, watch a couple of minutes of the show, then turn her phone back on and check facebook again, over and over. She finally left with her partner a little before the show ended and the man sitting behind me yelled at her "thank you", of course she was too stupid to know that he was talking to her. I turned around and said "I know, she was so annoying with her phone" and he replied that he had been wishing all through the show that he had a water balloon to throw at her!
Really, what is wrong with people that they can't even follow simple directions and show a little courtesy? This cell phone epidemic is so out of control. I think when we go to a public show where they say "no cell phones" and a person still refuses to follow the rules, we need a laser light or something that we can call them out, silently, not to be disruptive, and the people that work there can go get them and tell them to leave the show. So aggravating isn't it?
