......until one of my favorite events begins. The Puyallup Fair starts this Friday and runs thru 10pm Sunday September 21st. I don't know which day we're going...since I've retired we just go when we feel like it and depending on the weather in the morning. I know that this year there will only be one trip out there...what with my sore knee and trying to save $$ for the upcoming vacation...one trip will be enough.
I have not missed a Fair since I was a little kid. Even pregnancy and a new baby didn't keep me away. When I was in high school, we'd report to our home rooms, attendance would be taken, they'd hand out our free tickets and then we'd be loaded on our regular school bus and taken to the Fair. At a certain time, we'd go back to where the busses were parked, climb on and they'd take us home, along the regular route.

By the way, for those of you new to my journal;
Puyallup, is a lovely little town very near to me, about a 15 minute drive~it's a farming community known for the growing of tulips & daffodils, among many other crops. Puyallup was named after the Puyallup Tribe and means "the generous people." It's pronounced; Pew-all-up
