The REST of the FAIR

Hubby and I went to the Puyallup Fair on Monday, our day off. We walked around and did NOT ride any rides this year. We were able to take in some of the sights that children are not interested in. I did not get photos of the quilts this year, but they were beautiful and intricate, as always. The quilts are a "MUST SEE" every year for me. At lunch time we shared the HUGE half-pound "Earth Quake" burger with fries again. [We did not need another meal all day!]

The first stop, however, was the Floral Hall...WOW! Check this out! The landscape would "work" in my yard, but would require too much "work" to get it, I am thinking!

OOH, the Dahlias of all colors in a panorama of "eye candy". [Why don't we have dahlias in our yard? Oh, yeah... "work" required!]

After the floral exhibit, we headed to the hobby hall for my yearly cribbage challenge. I started this three years ago just to see how well I would do against the "club members" of our area. For three years straight I have won the game... I am amazed, myself! [I don't feel I am that great a player!]

We try to see a few "free shows" every year. This year we caught the "Doggies of the Wild West" and "Roberto the Magnificent" a comedy/magic act. (No picture of Roberto this year.)

I was one of the "audience participants" in the "Jest in Time" act, too. (see below)

All in all, it was a great day... mild, sunshiny kind of day! The Lord is GOOD!
