So, guess where I was last Friday night? O.K., so I sort of gave it away a little bit, but I wasn't just at the fair. I was with old friends, at the Pat Benetar concert, at the fair!
Last year was the first time I had gone to my home town fair in at least a decade. I ran into countless folks I hadn't seen in ages. So this year, my friend Todd thought it would be a good idea to organize when we would all go, so that it would coincide with a concert. Unfortunately, The Beach Boys landed in the middle of the week, and planning for a weekend night, we scored with Pat Benetar! (Who at 58, is still rockin' it and sounds amazing!)
We got there early and did strange things that you do at the fair ... like watching little kids in helmets ride sheep and eating deep fried foods that should be illegal in 50 states. It was awesome. ;)
My dear friend Shannon's daughter Makena enjoying the fair!
mmmm ... nothing is better than deep fried dough!
And yes, that is a very small child riding a sheep.
My friend Dan said, "Where's p.e.t.a.?!" Of course, there are worse things in store for this poor sheep than being ridden by a 4 year old.
My friends and I took note of what looks very much like a deep fried thumb, in this nicely lit up sign for deep fried zucchini. Do you see it?
Shannon and I have been Friends for 36 years!

Classic 1980s Pat Benetar video! Love the crazy 80s wardrobe! Especially about 2/3 the way through!
We're running with the Shadows of the Night
So baby take my hand, you'll be all right
Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
They'll come true in the end

Hope if you are having some 80s flashbacks, they're all good! ;)
Blessings and light!
