Reporting, live (kind of), from the Hometown Fest

July 2nd.

The party goes on…

Happy Birthday to Lindsay Lohan and Larry David. They should hang out together more.

Happy birthday to Hermann Hesse. To this day I am sometimes still Emil Sinclair looking/waiting for my (inner) Max Demian. Thanks a lot, man.



The following is my entry for this year’s Pulitzer Prize. As Bob “Elvis” West says, Thank you. Thank you very much.

    I LOVE your pics! Nice work, birthday girl! They make me nostalgic for a hometown fair I’ve never had. I’ve been waiting all summer for our fair because . . . let me tell you . . . it ain’t nearly as pretty. The tooth-to-tattoo ratio is pretty much 1:1 I think.

      LOL. “The tooth-to-tattoo ratio is pretty much 1:1”

      You kill me.

      My next post is going to be for you. For this awesome comment of yours. xxoo

    I love the pictures.

    Also Herman Hesse? I keep thinking of Howard Hessman from WKRP in Cincinatti…I am OLD.

    Yikes… No. 1 son is fearless, isn’t he?!! Was the bear a prize? What feat won him?

    Great job with the picture mosiac. You get my vote for presentation, content, and participation. You did ride too, didn’t you?

    Happy, happy birthday week!

    Happy Birthday!

    Great pictures! Wish I had the stomach for these rides. Glad I have a daughter who will go in my place with her daddy in the future.

      Exactly! In my case though, my oldest is fearless and thank goodness my husband takes one for the team when roller coasters are involved!
