Demolition Baby!

Last night we went to the fair. And to the demolition derby.

First, the fair. Joe and I don't ride rides. I hate them. He does too. We walked around to see what was going on.

Your choice, fried snickers, oreos, how about just a heart attack on a stick? Or lemonade.

This was when I wished we had Abby with us. Look at the kiddie rides!

The little boy in the blue shirt was scared to death on this ride. He kept looking at his Mama to make sure she was still there rooting him on.

Try your luck Joe. You might win a quipie doll!

Then there was this strange character. He kept dancing and acting like he was marching. See that boy looking at him? It was just downright odd.

Speaking of odd

This one is one of those gravity items. You couldn't pay me enough money to get in that one.

Plus we had just eaten dinner and that would have been ugly.

I tried to get a picture of some of Steph's friends but this contraption was going way too fast.

We ran into Greg, Steph's boyfriend.

Young love, first love..................................

Then we finally settled in for some action baby.

This was my favorite. I named her "The Headed One."

They made quite a mess

Finally it was time to head home. I took one last time down the midway for some more pictures

They look a lot better at night.

IMG_2942

This makes me dizzy just looking at it!

IMG_2944

This old man had a great time with the kids. I told him that he'd better be or else I'd get Barney Fife to take care of it.

IMG_2946

I tried to get Joe to win me a Barney prize but he refused. How rude!

IMG_2956

IMG_2957

Stephanie and her friends rode this! She said she didn't think she would ride it again.....EVER!

I guess short shorts are back in this year. We saw a lot at the fair. And some of those gals should have been arrested. You know what I mean?

We finally got home and I went straight to bed. I dreamed all night long.

IMG_2970

I kept dreaming that these things were laughing at me. Pig things.

IMG_2971

And clown things.

IMG_2972

Oh MY! And green things. They were all laughing at me and wouldn't stop.

Then I woke up.

Corn dogs! It wouldn't be the fair without corn dogs - and here in New Mexico we can get them with green chile - yummm!

I'm with you on the rides.

Whew! Lots of scary stuff at the carnival! I am not afraid of clowns, but those are scary!

So, when we were sitting in the bleachers I told Joe that if you had been there you would have been so very scared. Prolly to the point of leaving! You kwim.

I love going to fairs. It brings back so many memories of when I showed my horse at the fair. We had to live there for a week and it was so much fun.
I have been on the gravity ride, and the one you said Steph would never go on again. That was back in my teen years. I haven't been on a ride since, they freak me out now!
And those clowns, I would have had nightmares too!

I've never been to a demolition derby. The fair looks cool. Glad that you had a good time.

Karen said...

This is a great post. Fantastic pictures! Clowns scare and those heads would have definitely given me nightmares.

Gin said...

Great pics! Looks like you had a great time!

I can't do rides that spin anymore. Puke city. I've finally reached the age where I've decided I don't have to prove anything to anyone by riding the Gravitron.
