Just yesterday, I was lamenting to JWS
that I don't know where summer has gone.
We have been busy at work
we have worked some long days
Regretting that we have not been to the zoo,
an amusement park,
not ridden our motorcycles,
I was looking at the cup half empty.
It has been a bit of a rough time lately in several areas,
all uncontrollable factors at this point in our lives.
And then he pointed out...
a different kind of entertainment.
We have been to these.
Horse races at the fairgrounds next door.
Grandchildren and simple entertainment.
Kendall was totally entertained playing in the sink while I cooked supper.
The boys at work....
have found ALL the settings on my phone camera.
(Hence the black and whites at the top of this post, but I kind of liked those!)
And golf ball/tee bowling.
Papa built them the lane for it and they have had tons of fun with that.
And county fairs.
As a fair manager, JWS, with me in tow,
now has full access to any county fair.
What a great perk.
Last night was the Clarion County Fair.
I loved how they displayed their
Best of Show.
A suggestion I will be bringing back to our fair.
A bit of a redneck sport.
But it actually wasn't a bad evening.
There have been a few times that I have questioned life's direction this summer.
Two gun raffles,
that would/could/should be my quota for life.
And now there will be
Two tractor pulls this summer.
Another quota met.
A lot of work at the fairgrounds,
but new friends made,
and close to home
the boys found some entertainment in clothespins the other day.
Today I am the DD for the day.
as we have come to call it.
I will drop the patient
spend the day with my two favorite little girls in the world.
Gracelyn and Kendall.
that adorable little
Just a different kind of entertainment this year.
Time to look a the cup half full!
