Richmond Good Old Days...

Are a major fail. I think it has to be the worst fair I have ever gone too. All there is are maybe 12 or so crappy rides, carnival food(which I LOVE), a really small demo derby and figure 8, the beer tent, A small stage that plays local bands and a few local business stands. Now you may be saying, "That doesn't sound so bad." but it is. It's crowded with ignorant people and nothing is fun at all. The only reason I go up there is for something to do rather then sitting at home. But yesterday was kinda awesome and for one reason. We were walking back up to the fair and an old man walked past us with what looked to be his wife and said, "I feel like a salmon......drifting down the river." It was so awesome. I don't think I could have been any happier. We do have fireworks too. There actually pretty good. They got so loud at one point a car alarm went off. The thing that makes me mad about the fair is that I would LOVE to go on the rides if it wasn't that they were so expensive. A wrist band is $20 but it only last until 6pm. Then a sheet of 25 tickets is $22. Each ride takes 2,3 or 4 tickets. That's maybe 6 rides. Although the food is pretty expensive too. But I think I'm going to have to buy a funnel cake or cotton candy today. Or they have this stand and they sell amazing smelling food. It's like hot dogs, sausages and other real food. I wanted some so badly yesterday. It smells amazing. But not as amazing as Willoughby's food of course!!!!!

Yes, it was a disappointing fair this year.

Thank you for the compliment on my cooking! Of course, we had hot dogs and sausages last night, and Mr. Willoughby cooked, but you didn't have to pay for it!

We like to go to out local fair and check out all the 4-h stuff, animals and such. And of course the food, we have only done the rides once with the kids it really is too pricey for what you get out of it.
I love the Salmon comment, that is too funny :)
