Yesterday morning Bob asked me if I wanted to go to the Fair again...oh sure, what the heck....so I gathered my camera, etc and away we went to the mall to catch the bus (after stopping at Safeway for our discount tickets). This time we could tell, once we got to the bus that there were going to be more people attending on this Saturday than last Tuesday. Sunday morning's paper told me that was true...last Tuesday there were a little over 30,000 ....yesterday over 118,000. Quite a difference and it was noticed in the various lines waiting for food, bathrooms, etc. I didn't even get any scones this time...every time I checked the lines were blocks long. I guess I'll have to make my own here at home....I have the recipe, plus you can buy Fisher's Scone mix in the grocery stores and other locations.
But we had a good time....we watched Travis Fox, the hypnotist's show two different times. I got some more CD's from Gary Jess who also happens to work for the health system I worked for, and I went back to a booth, where a nice lady from Alaska was selling these beautiful dishwasher & microwave proof commuter coffee mugs.
We saw Darlene (of Dennis & Darlene that went on the Alaska cruise)...she was working out there in one of the official Fair souvenir booths.
The forecast was for sun & rain but I never saw or felt one single drop of rain. It was cool....probably in the low 60's but actually perfect for surviving walking thru the crowded show buildings and fair grounds.
Enjoy the pictures (enlarge them and they will be more clear).......the Fair is officially over at 10pm tonight. Next will be the Spring Fair April 17th thru the 20th.
On another note, I mentioned eBay the other day in one of my entries and I had several emails asking what so I sell. Well, the answer to that is; a little bit of everything. I do shop the thrift shops for items to sell on eBay and also I list things of my own that I will give to the thrift stores if they don't sell. Years ago, I decided since there were no Barbies when I was young I wanted to collect Barbies...so I did. Then I realized one day I would have to downsize, so I sold over 150 Barbies that I had purchased. I still have 4 left...that were given to me as gifts and I'm not ready to sell them as yet. One thing I love to sell is postcards....easy & cheap to ship and they are great sellers. I once sold a 25 cent postcard for $8.50. I buy books, DVD's & VHS videos on eBay, read or watch them and then re-sell them. So that's the story about my eBay experience. I've been doing it now since January of 1999 and thoroughly enjoy it.
Until next time..........Linda
