Sweet Fare from the Summer Fair...


The fishy said with a stern eye,"Bring us home," he said, he said. "Bring us home," he said.

"We will float you home on a cloud," he said, he said.


"We will float you home on a cloud," he said. "If you bring us home..." he said, he said, "just bring us home," he said.



So, my daughter, she brought them home she said, she said. She brought them home she said, she said, "I brought them home," she said. She floated down with Summer joys and a cotton candy grin, where she let only the best thoughts in. As she laid on the blanket in the yard, "I am happy," is all she said, "I am happy," is what she said.
Thanks to my Dad for taking the kids to the Fair! Summer is not Summer without Cotton Candy Clouds, Carnival rides, and Grandpa! Don't worry tomorrow we are off to get three, good, bubbly tanks for our ten, (yes, ten) gorgeous, new Koi Fair Fish! for now they are scattered all over the house in sweet "apartments." Ahh... Summer...

Dearest, dearest faerie friend...I have missed you and all my dear pals so much; your magic is an integral part of my inspiration and nourishment....this was magical as always. Only a few can take an ordinary object like cotton candy, and capture it through the light of the lens and create a story. Thank you, and it feels great to be back in the saddle! Anita

I like how if you put a lil' old goldfish in a pond, it will get really big! Those parti-colored ones are my favorites!

Oh, how I long for those days at the fair :-) I haven't had cotton candy in so many years. And those fabulous pics have me craving it now. I'm so happy your children had such a lovely time. I would bring the fish home too! Hope all is well for you and THANK YOU! for being such a wonderful and thoughtful blog friend. You are a rainbow!

Amy I think you dad is a wonderful man, first in rasing you, and now being such an amazing Grandpa to all your children, that is such an incredible treasure.
