I think they may even have some kind of riding lawn mower competition...
Our fair is pretty much the same as it was 30 years ago. Farm animals, Vegetables and flowers. Fair food, wild animal exhibit... Bear, cougar, racoon, beaver, elk, and deer. A big fish pond with Rainbow trout, you know the small town fair.
The fair does signify the official ending of summer.
So, maybe some pictures tomorrow, i am on the slow computer today so pictures take way too long.
Thank you all for the comments on the last post, I really do love that!

Flowing TranquilityAries Daily Horoscope
You may be feeling laid back which could make it easier for you to go with the flow and take things as they come today. Perhaps this sense of serenity might be due to your recognition that there is really little in life that you have to worry about if you allow yourself to put your trust in the hands of the universe. Being able to simply let go and let life take you where it will may not be easy, but if you can give yourself gentle reminders throughout the day should any fearful or doubtful thoughts arise such as “I feel relaxed” or “Life flows easily through me”. As you do this, you could notice that this gives you both greater peace of mind through a more permissive and accepting attitude of whatever may happen to you today. Trying not to control things but instead to simply let them take their course brings more tranquility into our lives. Our ability to release into whatever might occur may not be something that comes to us easily – even when we are the most relaxed, negative and worried thoughts may crop up. Once we know this however, we can easily come back to our state of peacefulness by using simple affirmations or prompts to gently help our minds release any thoughts that we are holding onto which also hold us back. By letting yourself go wherever life takes you, you will find tranquility in the quiet acceptance of the way things are today.
Talk about a day of getting what I need....Thank YOU

It seems like if I could only do this I would be so happy. How do you stop all the nonsense in your head. There is always so much going on in there, mostly worry, worry about all the stuff that I have no control over…I tell myself this and I still have the worst anxiety.
Is there special tricks that you do to help calm your mind from all the needless worry? To me it isn’t needless and that seems to be my problem.

I think there is so much excitement just getting ready and getting in line and trying to find the perfect spot on the grass, that I forgot my favorite camera. We did try to use the cell phone camera but that is not that great.
So, there we were on this wonderful August night, the sky was blue, some puffy clouds going by, friends everywhere, wine flowing, good food, good music, great spot. The ospreys were flying overhead giving us a spectacular show, catching fish and then flying them back to the babies in the nests above us. It was beautiful.
I had to get up to use the restroom, so as I am standing in the line visiting with my daughter and my neighbor, I feel something wet land on my forhead, I thought, "oh no, not rain", I said "what was that?" We look around and I see something white on my shirt, and so did Marty, He said, " Hey, I think the osprey just shit on us" It was true, can you believe that... then my friend Jay said "oh, Ithink that is good luck, you need to make a wish"... So that was our laugh for the night.
But we really did have such a fun night, and we are off to one more concert tonight. Josh Ritter and Madeline Peryoux. I have to make a cous cous salad and maybe a chocolate cake to take.
I will be wearing a hat tonight!!
