Might as well go ahead and say it, "I did not ride the hobby horses at the state fair"!
Shelby and I walked and walked. We ate fair food. We talked and laughed. We visited all our favorite places, like the village of yesteryear. Why, we must have walked past the merry-go-round a dozen times.
The best excuse I can offer for not getting on the merry-go-round is being worn out at the end of the day. There were two empty seats here...
so we decided to sit and listen to the bluegrass music for a while. Sometimes you don't realize how tired you are until you sit down. The music was good. We sat there probably 45 minutes. It was late afternoon, so we decided to start on that long walk back to the car, instead of around the fair grounds again.
Shelby checked her Fit Bit and friends, we had walked nine miles. Nine miles!!
Had to get a picture of this tall lovely lady passing by.
Tuesday was the fair. Wednesday we packed. Thursday morning at 5:00 we left for Missouri...but will post about that later. I've bored you enough for today.
Hope you haven't totally given up on me. I've got lots of catching up to do. Aren't the days busy! This morning the car has to be taken in to be serviced and inspected. Yesterday, it was a trip to Henderson for Poppy...always something! :)
Neither did we ride this newest, tallest Ferris wheel! Next year, I am riding the hobby horses...right after we eat the plate of fried dough with powdered sugar!
