The Fourth of July is the beginning of Fair Season
in my part of the world.
Today I was at the right place to watch the midway
get set up in a nearby town.
I used to love these rides. I'd go on any of them.
A couple of years ago I went on some
and shortly thereafter lost my lunch.
(How father time has forsaken me!!)
But I still like the excitement of the set-up,
the 'carneys' and their followers,
the wires, generators, pieces coming together--
and the kids wheeling by on their bikes,
so excited they can hardly stay on the ground.
Here's the scene from a local waterfront.
The midway opens tomorrow at 5pm,
and shuts down after the fireworks on the 4th.
Happy 4th, everyone!
