The Long Way Home

A Day at the Fair

Things I learned at the Butler County fair: Hot waffle ice cream sandwiches are an amazing invention. Alpacas are addictive. Sword swallowing produces a white foam that coats the edge of a blade. Rastafarian bananas are a popular children’s toy in rural Pennsylvania. It takes at least 500 ring tosses to win a pocket knife. Jeff is pretty sexy in a pink cowboy hat. Corn dogs are best topped with sriracha. Dark rides do not scare children. An eye is a mirror.

I didn’t realize I was so far behind on reading your posts – and I totally missed this wonderful one…with a reflection in a horse’s eye (what coincidence!). You really capture the feeling of a summer fair.

When I saw your photo of horse looking into the camera too, I was surprised at the coincidence too!

What lush, lovely pics! I’m sad I missed the fair yet again, but this post was the next best thing to standing in the sawdust.
