The Pigeon Falls Lion's Club wishes to announce a story writing contest for anybody interested in writing short stories. The Story can be anywhere between one hundred and six hundred words. 'The title must be " I remember when ........"
The story should be obviously false but with a ring of possible truth. ( Figure that out)
There are no real prizes but your story will become part of the ongoing Pigeon Falls story.
More information is available HERE
Yesterday Betty and I went to the County Fair.
It was a great day to go with a nice cool breeze.
Going to a Fait, for me, is like a trip back into my past.
Memories flow in from every direction
When I was a kid we never went to amusement parks but every year my dad took us to the UP State Fair.
There were rides and games and excitement.
It was Paradise for a kid.
I always bet on which hole the mouse would go in. I always lost.
When I got older I took my chickens and pigeons to the fair. I never got a blue ribbon but it was still fun.
All those memories.
Then there are memories of grandma going with us and bringing a picnic basket full of pasties.
So many memories.
This County Fair was not bad. The crowd was small. The exhibits were good.
Even the food was reasonable. You could get a hot dog for $1.00.
And even though it wasn’t “my fair” the memories were there.
It was a wonderful day.
So here are some pictures from the day. I decided against putting them in a slide show because this way if you see something you like you can click on it and make it large.
On the bottom is a movie of the rides. Wouldn’t be a fair without them.
