A Day At The Fair

     Summer is a fun time to enjoy the sunshine, sunny day's, carnival rides hot dogs, demo derby's, and the concert;s. My favorite thing to do is go to a concert.  What a treat that is. This year for the first time since I was a child I went to the state fair.  it was hot and humid that day. But oh so much fun. Seeing all those people going in, searching for parking spaces is often a real hassle. I thought it was a pain hunting for spaces in the shopping mall. The fair, that is something you had to really do to see what it does to you. Even with them guiding you to the only spot in the whole lot, there is always someone to come along and snatch it up ahead of you.
     The concert was the most fun I've had in along time. Seeing such a wonderful singer sure is an experience I will not forget. Such a wonderful, warm person as Crystal Gayle is an honor to meet.  Her music is so pleasant to listen to no matter what time of day or how you feel. She has that rear gift that can lift your spirits from any place your at. Her hair is beautiful. I had long hair myself. In this heat it really does get so hot when it's down. And so heavy. I was so relieved when I got it cut. Mine was not that long. But still it was a lot of trouble to keep it combed all the time. worse when it was hot.
     She makes her concerts so much fun. One of the band members was from Wales. The instrument he played was something new. I don't remember what it was called. I found out later her band is the first to use it. Which is really cool. My only regret is that we didn't get the chance to meet her.
     The fair had some animals from the zoo. They had rides on camels. A petting zoo exhibit as well. So many things to see. That is the fun part of being at the fair. All week concerts is a blast. It was truly fun. I didn't plan on going this year but after going I am now glad I went. It was SOO worth it.
