The colors of the Midway

Come see what we saw as part of the Stock show :

Some of you may need some Courage to face it

With the crazy upside down rides

and people

and all the games

But just "keep swimming"

And you will find some slower,

These are terrific, colorful shots, Marcia! Sure did take me back! Like Sandy, I love the different angles you got shots from! Does look like fun! Have a great week!

The rubies cover the rides, making them attractive to the fair goers, beckoning thrill seekers. Of course, even though sporty in style, I never warmed up to things that go round and round. So I enjoy the tubies while staying safely on the ground...
