WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.
What a Difference a Day Makes!!
Well, what a difference a day or two makes.
Here is the garden that was ripped asunder by the city:
Then I broke up with artsyguy (who was in my house when I came home today from walking the dog, and had put $50 on my computer keyboard and a stickynote saying "merci pour le camping" on my computer screen), and went off to the country fair with my old college friend and her kids. Had a blast. So here are lots of photos. Sorry for y'all with dialup.
There were rides and stands:
I saw funny chickens and tiny ponies (can you believe that some asshat watching this pair said "oooooh, sexual behaviour!!"]
I saw tiny kids racing and big kids racing:
And green eggs but no green ham:
The little girl we were with was asked to ride on a HUGE HORSE in the "under 8 yr old" class:
And I won a purple monkey doing the "squirt" game... the first time I've done that since I'm about 16. Yes, that was TWENTYSEVEN YEARS AGO!! (and I don't think I won anything then). I was thrilled. Spent only $2 on one game, and won it. Let's just say I was concentrated and determined! SQUIRT SQUIRT SQUIRT! VICTORY!!!
Amazingly I didn't get sick from having ONLY shitty food and being out in the sun the entire day. I had a huge blast as well as a huge blast from the past. And got to sleep in the poptop of a new Westfalia under a canopy of incredible stars, picked blackberries and then came home.
Now I am dead tired.
btw this is the fair we went to. Funnily enough, my pics look just like theirs!!
5 People have left cute, callous or caring comments on the wench's wordiness!!
