Just some thoughts:
COUNTY FAIRS AND TEDDY BEARS
If you have some country roots you get this picture. The other night after an afternoon and evening of harnessing racing as I pulled from the parking field looking back and I could hear the sounds and see the sites of a county fair.
Quoting a paragraph from a friend of mine (Larry Vandeventer)
“I often say that there are few things that look as bedraggled as a carnival in the noon day sun or as magical as a carnival after dark. I used to envy those who walked about a fair with a yardstick or cane they had either won or received as a promotion.” (We all did envy)
Now here is the really great quote from my friend. No truer words have ever been spoken:
“Rare is the young teenage girl whose eyes carry more sparkle and shine as when she is walking about the carnival with a huge stuffed teddy bear or something her date has won for her. Magic.”
“Or the young man’s pride that just won that bear for her.” Folks that is the Abe Lincoln gospel truth.
