A Darn Good Time
We are pictured here at the Clackamas County Fair, a fair I attended in my early teen days when we lived in Canby. Good times. This time, we went as a family and dined on GREEZY corndogs, pork sandwiches, funnel cakes, and for Jooge, ice cream. (Poor Avery had "cack-oh's"). Jooge rode on her first ride, the one that my brothers and I always tried to imitate the noise of....(can't you just hear it from your youth, it was either cars or motor cycles and they went "EH EH EH EH EH" in punchy little syllabic sounds). Also, we watched a dance troup from Lake Oswego, "beautiful ballerinas," played in the big box of corn, and made "dirt babies."
These are nylons stuffed with grass seed and dirt, then adorned with faces. You soak them in water for two minutes, then let their "tails" soak in water and eventually they grow hair (sprouts) which you can cut. Pretty fun.
Oh and the animals. We loved seeing the animals. Check out this goat that totally posed for the picture with Jooge....
