“Be ready at 11:30,” said the hubby, “I’m taking you to a special place for lunch.”
Well, that set my heart to racing. Had he found a new restaurant? Were we going on a boat adventure? Just what was in store? The answer came after about a half hour’s drive.
As we wandered into the food area, there were all kinds of tempting offerings from the best fried Maine seafood to Italian sausage to fried dough to burgers and hot dogs or whatever else could give you a big stomachache. Nothing here that Jamie Oliver would be proud to have you eat!
While there was lots of excitement on the midway, we settled for the livestock exhibits where the Texas longhorn was getting a lot of attention. Evidently, that’s not a common breed in these parts, and it took a Texan to explain that yes, those horns are real!
Finally, it was time for the harness races, something I’d been wishing to see for several years. Those little buggies flat move around the track, and it looked like it took a lot more skill than I’d thought about to keep them upright.
After a long afternoon in the sun, it was time to go. As we wandered out we heard the sound of country music and smiled as two couples got up to click their heels. Don’t some people just know how to have fun!
