One Day At the Fair

How pissed would you be if you were this sheep? Poor little wrinkly, vulnerable thing. I wish they'd shaved the entire animal, rather than leave just that undignified hint of Lucy Ricardo up on top. The more I look at this picture, the more questions I have. Is it difficult to see when your eyes are that far apart? What, exactly, does this sheep do for fun? Does it have a favorite song?


Here, now, is one tired sow. Even she knows that you might as well catch up on your sleep while nursing. Either that, or read People magazine.


People were surprisingly willing to have their picture taken by a complete stranger. The spousal unit easily received permission from this woman—let's call her...I don't know...Tish—who was about to dig her cherry-red talons into this here funnel cake:


And this kid—let's call him...I don't know...Arthur—was happy to offer Nesting Ground readers a look at his lunch. Please note that he'd already taken several bites of this one hundred and seventy-five foot corndog. Later, he used the stick in a jousting match at the Renaissance Fair near Casa de Fruta:


The prize for Best Hair at Fair goes to...


There was also a prize for Best Fancy Caballero Wearing Shiny Boots, Shiny Gold Chains, and Stunning Black Cowboy Hat Emblazoned with Gold Embroidered "Montes" on the Right Side, but, alas, no picture. Instead, I offer a photo of a vaguely (or perhaps explicitly) embarrassing squash:


And behold! The zany fingered citron:


Oh, but that's not all. Here, Risa and Lea shower their affection on a 270-lb. pumpkin:


And, finally, the requisite photo booth picture in which it is now virtually impossible to fit all our children:



'Til next year, Big Fresno Fair...

That sheep is like that cartoon short that they showed before "The Incredibles" movie. Extremely feel good but addictingly catchy.

Hi gura & weez! I just clicked on the sheep for a larger image and oh, dear. Super icky. Had to click on the funnel cake to take my mind off of it...
