Country Fair ~ Feast for the Senses

I hadn't been to a real country fair in years & felt as if I'd taken a step back in time. If nothing else, a country fair is a real feast for the senses. The aroma of fried dough and bushels of apples, combined with the scents of farm animals & trampled hay brought back memories in a rush, for this was the fair I grew up going to as a kid.

Every where I turned was a treat for the eyes. The people watching alone was worth the visit. Yes, there were plenty of campy trinkets and over-priced foods. But the special place these scenes hold in my memory raise them up to a place that bring smiles and satisfaction to a beautiful end of summer day.

The song for today is Keb Mo's cover of "Family Affair" from his album "Big Wide Grin".
