More people watching and clicking.

This year's fashion statement seems to be these umbrella hats.

The gentleman below asked me to pay him $50 for taking his photo.

Do you think he was worth it?

Happy Hollow at one time was where one would find all the rides. It was actually a perfect place until someone decided to move the rides to the other side of the fairgrounds.

Couple of years ago Happy Hollow was used as a parking lot for trailers, this year it was set up for this AMAZING show.

Notice the huge crowd gathering?

Bet Texas Tommy takes his road show somewhere else .

John???

John???

Nothing like having a personalized golf cart.

Don't ask about the next one......still trying to figure out.

John I actually put a caption under the photo for you to see about jello, but Pb being what it is....apparently captions are definitely not working at all.

Please say you were not wearing an umbrella hat. 
I think in closed sessions of the Chinese Communist Party gatherings they probably show pictures like these and are given lectures on how we in the west will just buy whatever crazy they can come up with.smile

No hats for me!!!! of any kind...they act as blinders...can't see, can't hear, can't walk, can't click 😁

#10 I think every time you came out and had to perform to one person, a small part of you would die.

1 month, 3 weeks ago Edited
Camellia Staab Replied to Gethin Thomas 1 month, 3 weeks ago

Agreed. Hence, I will never perform anywhere smile
