Smells Like The Fair

Yesterday we made a visit to the LA County Fair.  We do have one closer to where we live now, but I guess I am loyal to the one I grew up going to.  Had fun taking in the sights & smells of the fair experience...crowds of peeps, farm animals, people chowing down giant Turkey legs(sorry,they kind of gross me out). Saw many interesting edible things for sale, like deep fried chocolate covered bacon & deep fried Kool-aid balls.

A few shots from the day:

So I have finally stepped into modern times & got an updated cell phone.  See my new toy?  Yesterday, at the fair, was my first day using it & I must say I am mentally challenged with the thing.  I had 2 friends texting me while I was there & it took me forever to be able to press the right letters...I felt like I had huge sausage fingers.

All the time I was preoccupied trying to respond to texts, my daughter India really wanted to show me these miniature trains & I kept telling her "in a minute".  I was thinking afterward about those days(not so long ago),  when you'd go somewhere for the day & if someone wanted to get ahold of you they called your home phone & left a message, or they just waited until the next time they saw you to tell you what they needed to say.  Anyway, not trying to sound like an old Grandma here...but I wonder what this sense of urgency is all about in alot of us, that we feel like we have to get back to everyone right away & we have to always be accessable.  Ok, done with my ponderings.  So really the whole reason I wanted an iPhone anyways, was for this very cool case :) that I just ordered.


  1. Saw your new case. Love it! :)

  2. Very nice blog, Aimie
    I like your style of dolls and how you paint your creations.
    And I do remember going to the L.A. County Fair many times and now live in Central California so I haven't been there for years. It is one of the best with so many things to do and see. Thank you for sharing about it as it brings back many good memories. I linked here from your Etsy site. Come see my blog too!
