    Our day at the County Fair

    ZG, her son, his friend, and I went to the County Fair this afternoon. It was ugly....it was butt ugly. And Stan was there!!!!

















    The Dark Side was represented.


    And of course, Stan.


    Can you top this County Fair?

    The woman in black had so many moles, RJ said I should scratch 3 and see if I won the lottery.

    I know, we're bad.

    But the boys had a really good time!

    Posted above are the TOP 10 REASONS NOT to move to the Florida Panhandle.

    Wow, what an assortment of freaks. You couldn't even get that in Sanford (and that is sayin' somethin')...

    Yea, no freaks in central FL....no couples getting married on the beach, no very odd group of people watching the FSU/UF football game on a big screen TV in a carport....

    the free fair!

    I love the fair! My self image always gets a boost.

    the freaks the animals the rides, I bet your panhandle fair cant beat a lower mid michigan fair in assortment of most unusual patrons.

    Did yours have a freak show that you had to pay to see? Lil Linda of Haiti (primordial dwarf) or the Snake WOman?

    What no comment/talk about the lawn tractor pull ?
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    We must have missed that one. (That county fair was soooo small, they only had chickens and rabbits in the livestock barn....)

    We would have stayed longer but when RJ kept muttering "Beer, beer....." I knew it was time to leave....

    One in the panhandle. They had a tent selling "margaritas" and "pina coladas" but had a big sign that they were all non-alcoholic. Sigh....

    Why were you guys following her around? Trying to ask her if she was interested in a 3-way .........................................................................................................................................

    A guy once told me, "Do not have any attachments, do not have anything in your life you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner."

    I'm surprised the carnies didn't get all upset you were taking their pictures. They musta thought you were going to make them famous.....
    Cameras shouldn't be allowed at those places, it's like watching people at the mall, but 10x worse. It's not a zoo for pete's sake..............
    What do I get for 4 tickets?????
    Who's gonna re-invent the wheel today?
