A little bit late in the day with this post (I’m still awful at scheduling so I do them by hand – life gets in the way!) and I’m getting it in barely under the wire but here’s the tail end of my journey. Home again to the NW Missouri State Fair – at least I think that’s what it was – well, it was a fair at any rate! I’m trying a different photo style, let me know if you like this better or worse than the slideshows!
And there was racing, if you can call it that! They over-watered the track and it took two hours to dry it out! Bit feeble, if you ask me. The announcer spent the whole two hours yelling at the drivers to get out on the track as if they were children. Sheesh!
And not a vegan snack in sight. Makes a girl want to set up her own concession stand!
After that, the Renaissance Festival! My second time, ever, attending. I feel more out of place there than I do on the street in my 1940s clothes but it was a lot of fun! And the location is Lovely, with a lot of permanent structures to make it all more believable! I wasn’t too thrilled with the animal rides, though. I don’t remember that from last time, I might be firm about not doing RenFest again now that I know it’s going on but the animals did seem to be treated well and the weather was nice, so that’s something. Still not a fan but I’m trying desperately to look on the bright side! Grrr.
Well, that’s some of my crazy adventures in the past few weeks. I’ve spent a lot of time on the road and will continue to do so until this crazy year is over. I decided to not include local trips (which are too many, in Missouri every day trip takes hours each way!) or our trip to Arkansas to get Cowboy’s 36 Plymouth – that last one will be a bit later. I hope your summer has been eventful and outrageously fun!
Have you been anywhere neat this summer? Leave me a comment, I’d love to hear about it!
