Well heck I gotta admit it's a mixed bag with the way the Psyhigh Fair and Rodeo turned out. On the one hand, it was such a barn buster I've been offered a position at the Psychic Rodeo Commission! That's right, they've made me a sheriff. And, as I get to pick my own deputy, I'm bringing along Fumbles the Clown. It'll do us both a world of good to have steady jobs. Fumbles is especially excited about the mental health benefits.

On the other hand, The Big Ropers turned out to be a big sham! When they said all they wanted in return for their appearance were the eternal souls of 10% off our students, well, I just thought it was a figure of speech. Like, "it would be a really great show." But now @Les Noable and the rest have been spirited away by those holographic hucksters, and it looks like my first job as a sheriff of the Psychic Rodeo Commission is to chase down those spectral varmints and rescue the hostages before they have time to complete the ritual.

Which means I've got to be moseying along, little psychic buckaroos. And uh, if you've got one of them vouchers for your fair prize, like @Cairo Ostracon or @Julia Nye or @Abigail C, you just check with @Ms. Hazeltine and she'll take care of everything.

PSYippytiyiyo little doggies!

I haven't been part of the rodeo but during an inspection of some stables (for ritual materials of course) a de-fleshed horse appears to be regrowing its organs. Not only is it grotesque, it may be dangerous to the horse. I'd suggest you investigate. I'm not sure about its actual name, but when I attempted to commune with the horse, it telepathically introduced itself as Marcus.

We took first prize in Big Cat Flying! Lula the Battle Panther is an ace. Fastest through the fire hoops, the weaving spears, Triangulon, and the wombat catch and release. We got a big blue ribbon and a notarized certificate to claim our prize.

But what is our big prize, @Lasso Larry? By the time we left the flying pavilion it was like the fair was over. All the rides were taken down and the booths were packed up. Everybody was gone--including a big bunch of students, I hear. Nothing but a hot dog wrapper, floating in the breeze.

We watched about all of the empathy clowns we could take, seeing them squirm and moan and jerk with the occasional spasm, and then we decided we had to leave. The Elks or the Masons or whoever the old guys were in their suits tried to keep us inside the arena gate but Maisie knew how to climb up under the bleachers and walk out over the top of the chutes for the animals.

We hopped down off the fence into the fairgrounds, and tried to mix in with the crowd, but that's when the giant holographic cowboys appeared. "Ladies and gentlemen and OTHER please welcome THE BIG ROPERS!"

At first it was fun, like a big square dance, and they seemed to win stars up in the sky for each formation they moved us into. But then we found ourselves locked in a container and loaded up on to a truck or something because there's vibration and it's dark and the air is close.

Is this part of a ride, @Lasso Larry?

Well don't get your chaps in a bunch, @Meigle 7. We know how to treat our rodeo creatures fair & square. We have dedicated wranglers and safety protocols we follow for all our stock, be they of the overly cute mammal, ferocious insect, ravenous reptile, or completely mythical variety. Plus, each featured species of critter has an assigned empath, who remains completely in touch with their herd throughout the event. These empaths feel everything that each animal feels, and you can observe these empaths in their cages suspended over the arena. We call these empaths "psychic rodeo clowns," and are recognizable by their traditional face paint and red noses and colorful attire.

And there's still time to sign up for these rip roarin' events! And enter the Rose Pie Eating Contest to boot. Drop on by the Old Corral in the morning! Fair events open at high noon, various activities in the corral all afternoon, and the rodeo starts at 8.

Lookin' forward to seein' y'all there!

Rodeos are cruel to animals, even imaginary ones, @Lasso Larry. You and the school should be ashamed.

SAY NO PSYCHIC RODEO!

Well heck @Julia Nye I think you better get your Dihydrogen Monoxide concoction entered into the Industrial Psychic Chemistry competition coming up at the Psychic High School Psychic Fair and Rodeo, this Saturday, August 22nd, in the Old Corral. Did you know you can have a booth and give away free samples and win fabulous prizes?

Well ‘ya can!

Along with Industrial Psychic Chemistry, there’ll be prizes awarded for the best Honey & Products of the Hive (giant division), best flaming bouffant, a judging contest (not for the easily offended), who makes the best Rose Pie, and a whole lot more!

Special guests: The Big Ropers

Don't forget to sign up today!

See ya' in the tack room.

Well heck yeah, @Cairo Ostracon there'll be a cat flying room. One for the small cats and one for the big cats. There'll also be a butterfly tying room, mind baking contest, worm pulling tournament (weather permitting), a corn-mile jump, and an antique doctor pull. This is a proper psychic fair and rodeo.

You might have noticed the Great Horned Beetles that arrived in the semi-trucks recently--looks like the team roping event is on. The Brontos are due to be airlifted in this weekend, the ghosts are beginning to arrive by mail for the wrangling contest, and those Giant Poisonous Centipedes are looking pretty surly in their pens. They'll be in quite a mood when the barrel racing starts.

Plus! Surprise special guests this year: The Big Ropers! You just won't believe what they will do to you. Stay tuned on that one!

It all happens Saturday, August 22nd, in the Old Corral, located behind the gym right near them great big piles of sentient compost. Don't forget to sign up today!

Will there be a cat flying room at the psychic fair, @Lasso Larry?

And in the summer, we would wear cowboy hats.

I’m in!
