"Art does not reproduce the visible, it makes things visible in the first place."

Well, guess where the 5 of us went on Sunday??  We all had such a good time!


This guy was GREAT!  ..."Sweet Home Alabama..." lalala...


Gee, pretty much what all of East County has in their yards...We don't have eggs or a tractor, though...but quite a few people around here do...




Mmmmmm! And a skyride!




I had a few goals of things I "had" to see: a jar of pickles, a jar of jam, and a pie.  Well, I got two out of three.  I saw no pie, but we did happen upon the home arts building just after cheesecake judging and scored ourselves a big piece of the blue ribbon winner! It was a delicious and very rich lemon cheesecake made by a most enthusiastic expert =-) 

Everywhere we looked there were people up in the sky...on the Skyride, on the Bungee Jump, swinging around in seats hanging by chains from that pole you can barely see in front of the Ferris Wheel, on the Ferris Wheel,  and on one of those awful sling shot "rides" just to name a few... I, personally, keep my feet planted on the ground unless I'm on a plane or a ship...

Oh! And we watched a bit of the finals in the Roller Derby match, a first for all of us! And it was fun!

And finally:


 I did not partake...after all, I was on my way to the funnel cake stand...otherwise...well, except for that whole vegetarian thing...

Chocolate covered bacon must have come from the same mindset that brought deep-fried butter to the Texas State Fair. Pretty crazy. It looks like you had a great time, feet on the ground and all.

Do I recognize the Del Mar Fairgrounds? I love the fair. I must send a picture of the chocolate bacon tent to my friend Cheryl--she is the bacon queen.

Wow, I've never heard of chocolate covered bacon before!!!
Although I knew someone once who put maple syrup on theirs...!
Looks like you had a good time!

Funnel cake with strawberries and whipped cream at the fair! My favorite Del Mar meal!

Love the one-man band! He reminds me of Dick van Dyke in Chitty-Chitty Bang Bang.

I see summer has arrived!
