Ok. Now there I’ve gone and gotten myself in trouble for suggesting politicians resemble a cow’s butt. Sorry. You know me well now. There are no sacred cows in my world.

We had a blast at the Eastern Nova Scotia Exhibition. We took our granddaughter and did all the mandatory stops. She went on a few of the rides and I went on the Ferris Wheel with her, the first time I’ve done that in at least 25 years. I think the operator was the same guy that was there back in the 1950’s when I was a kid. He won’t win the congeniality award.  She played a few games of chance ( the ones that guarantee a prize to children! ) and we visited all the barns. She got to sit on the biggest horse at the Ex – a 2100 pound Clydesdale. And on our way out, we couldn’t quite get past the cotton candy stand and we settled on a candy apple. Coming up next week, I will have a story called “Fall Fare” which sums up all that is good and evil at the Fair.

When is the last time you thought about your ears? Unless you are getting an ear pierced or you wear glasses, you probably don’t pay much attention to them. A little while back I had some surgery on my ear, performed by my brother. There are some interesting twists and turns in the story and I am seriously pondering humiliating myself once and for all by posting a picture that was taken at the time. What do you think Connie? If enough people clamor to see it, I may post it. Coming Saturday, “Getting an Earful”.

One of the librarians at People’s Place library told me a funny story the other day and I rushed home and put pen to paper. I have asked her to proof read and edit it before I publish it. The story is 100% true but I have embellished it somewhat. I’ll let you know if it passes her scrutiny.

I hope everyone has a great long weekend and be careful if you are playing washer toss while drinking. I am aware of someone who was injured playing this game. Is it possible to play washer toss sober?
