More Fair Pictures


Hello, My People!

I had to let my County Fair Freak Flag fly just one more day.


I am thinking of getting a sign just like this for our house.


Who you callin' a turkey?


The slide of many colors.


I think this sign is just as clear as it needs to be.


However, what would the fair be without a dangerous criminal element?
That's my friend, Lori, who climbed over a chain to touch, enter and otherwise interact with the display.


Our fair is right by the ocean.

The scene is made complete with these palm trees at the exit.


Hope you are having happy days!

I just can't get over the fact that y'all can wear long pants and jackets this time of year. I'm moving out there. Today. LOL

You girls are such rebels!

Good for the interacter!
Gotta say that turkey is magnificent.

Flartus said...

Gee, I was kind of hoping to see a picture of Lori smiling and waving as she was bundled off by Fair Security.

Good luck getting that sign on the house...maybe you can convince HOB it will attract crows. (Of course, then your Youngest may move out prematurely...)

Old Kitty said...

Oh you're friend is such a rebel!! Yay!!!

LOL!!!

The turkey is gorgeous!! Take care

Laura said...

See! My husband would step over that chain and I'd be stressing out and begging him to get out of there. I am a rule follower! :-)

Eva Gallant said...

That turkey shot was amazing! And the turkey on the tractor was pretty good too! lol

What fun, wish they had these fairs here !

Sara said...

Do you stop by the Oyster-Pearl booths? That used to be my tradition at the San Diego fair. I still have all those pearls in their baggies. Maybe I should do something with those!

jenny_o said...

So how long did it take to spring Lori from the hoosegow after the fair? Or did you have "connections"?

Madi and Mom said...

You and Lori were having way too much fun!! Fairs are so much more fun with you can share the experience.
Hugs Madi and Mom

I like that "Do Not" is underlined. A lot of thought went into that sign.

Country fairs are the best. We have many of them here in the South.

And I have the best turkey story. We have a farm in the area that hosts schoolchildren all the time. They're more of a learning experience for children than they are a working farm. Because of the constant field trips, the animals are very friendly and comfortable around children. When my daughter was small, I chaperoned a field trip there. Our bus pulled up and the children came piling out of the bus. A lot of the animals are in an open area in the front of the farm, just milling about. When the animals saw the kids, they came charging up to greet the kids. Amongst the sheep and goats were turkeys, running and gobbling towards the children. The children all took one look at those hideous creatures and shrieked, "THE TURKEYS! THE TURKEYS!" and went running back onto the bus. We had to coax them back out.

I always think of that story when I see an ugly ole' turkey.

Great pics and post. You have to love an adult who breaks the rules once in awhile. I like your friend!

Baby Sister said...

I need one of those signs for my house and for work!! It's perfect!!

Marg said...

That would make a great sign for anyone's house. Love the turkey picture.He looks like quite the character. Fairs really are a lot of fun, that is for sure. I used to love to go to them. Take care and have a terrific day.

Daisy said...

I think Lori likes to live life on the edge! haha! :)

floweringmama said...

Yes, yes, but did you get any of the wonderful fair food???

Sarah said...

Lori must be your partner in crime!

Bob Bushell said...

Looks like you had a nice day, wonderful snaps.

Gigi said...

I'm so jealous! I love fairs, the rides, the food, etc. But somehow have found myself married to a man who doesn't AND have a child (hush, he is TOO still a child) with no real care for it either. So I haven't been in YEARS. I need to find me a Lori to go with me.

Ms. A said...

If you add "Not" to that Fun House sign, I could totally use it!

Mamma has spoken said...

Your friend is such a dare devil getting on that tractor but I have just one question: how much did you have to beg her to do it?

julie fedderson said...

Other than touching or entering, how else do you interact with a display? And now I'm craving those giant turkey legs that they serve at county fairs.

Ann said...

and what a good friend you are to be right there to get photographic proof of Lori's crime :)

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

What kind of fair doesn't want you to sit on the tractors? I have pictures of all my kids on the tractors.

Powdered Toast Man said...

can I touch or interact with the sign of the display?

Marlene said...

I would LOVE to be at that fair right now! I am so envious. I am going to have to hunt around here for a decent country fair to visit. You've totally put that idea in my head! (And I love it!)

Catherine said...

Oh you naughty naughty girls ~ clearly the sign was not big enough to read. ;)

And look at all the yummy food below!! Somehow my green beans and skinless chicken breast I had for supper tonight just isn't cutting it. :(

Stupid rules just need to be broken! Nice pics from the fair!

Susan in the Boonies said...

STEP AWAY FROM THE DISPLAY!!!
