This past Saturday, my friend Jen and I went to the Lee County Fair for an evening of the sort of fun that can only be found at a fair. It was a drizzly, muggy evening, but the rain held off enough for us to enjoy snapping pics of the colorful rides, swinging up in the air, eating entirely unhealthy food and feeling like a kid again. We both enjoy taking pictures, and there was so much to see that I had a bit of field day.
(Jen’s pic of me on the carousel. Great photographer, that lady!)

What is that amorphous fried thing, you ask? Oh, just fried banana pudding. Yep, that’s right.
And this? Fried brownie bites, of course.
First place tobacco.
Here’s the very fun portion of our fair festivities when my friend Jen got hypnotized on stage. Here she is amused and calm.
…and here she is slightly more calm, ha. It worked pretty quickly on her.
All in all, no harm was done, and the results were amusing. The girl on the end is trying to tie her shoes, which unfortunately she lost the ability to do, thanks to the hypnotist’s instruction. Later on, he fixed it. She was elated.
And now for a few nighttime fair shots…
What a delightful, whimsical evening. Full of fried food and relaxed by the sort of laughter that only flying through the air and watching a friend get hypnotized can produce, I left the fair a happy gal. Can’t wait ’til next year.
