Don't Fence Me In

Still making use of my fair visit a week later. 


A fence with a horse in front of it.

Not quite a fence, but fenced in none-the-less.

Wednesday Odds and Ends

I don't have a bird to post today and Wednesday Hodge Podge is taking a break, so I'm at a loss as to what to post. So, I went back to the State Fair and found some odds and ends which might be of interest.

I like to people watch. As a writer, I'm always looking for interesting characters. I found a few at the fair but only took a couple of pics—secretly. 


Does anyone really think this is an attractive look? I know I'm getting old but I don't  understand gaudy hair colors. And then there is the purse. I love green, but alongside the hair color—oh my! 


This I like. Do you suppose this guy is a patriotic train engineer?


And speaking of patriotic...


Ending with Scott's Law. Do you have a Scott's Law in your state? This officer lived, but he was seriously injured.

No linking today. Happy Wednesday!

Rubbish Tuesday #16

All of the permanent structures at the fair are old. 



Including this section of stables. I think they will need new roofs soon.


This is the grand stand entrance. Built in 1927.


This is the entrance to one of the horse barns. Old doors freshly painted.


These are even older stables. Not too many were occupied. Most selected the newer old models.


This building housed merchants. We went in to look at the western jewelry, but we didn't find anything we couldn't live without. It is in very good condition. I like the architecture.





This is the arched doorway we went through as we were leaving. That's JD walking ahead. I'm always lagging behind taking pictures. He says he fits perfectly in a post about all things old.


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will join in the fun.

My idea was to have a place to post 'old things'.  Anything old and/or deteriorating such as old houses, barns, outbuildings, old cars, rusty things, antiques, interesting junk, or it can be something in pristine condition, but just old.
