Good Fences, December 11, 2014

I've been scanning old photos...its an on-going project.  I found these this past week.  They're from the last year we went to the county fair while living in Ohio....maybe 4 years ago.

along the race track Lancaster Fairgrounds, Lancastter, Ohio
This picture is of the race track looking toward the back where the horses were housed for the Fair.
 
The bottom picture reminds me so much of Mom.  She always called this the Old Grandstand....the one she remembered growing up with.  It's an old wooden structure, and she and I would always watch the "buggy" races there each year.  Then we'd part ways ... her and Dad, me and my friends, then meet here in the evening to stroll around the Grounds together for a bite to eat, before parting ways again.

  1. Hi Karen. Pretty pictures! I also have a pile of pictures that I need to scan before I lose them. But like you I get into all the memories! And I forget I was going to scan them so the scanning never gets done!

  3. I loved the country fairs at age 6 and then they sort of teetered off in many locations.
