Alaska State Fair Harmony


My son, his girlfriend, Ellie and I did the Alaska State Fair once more yesterday.

From giant pumpkins to prize pigs . . . 4H steers to human slingshots . . . Ferris wheels to cabbage fairies . . . corn-dogs to concerts . . . an endless Fun-4-All collection of crafts, cuisine, creatures, amusements and vendors throngs of friends and family delighted in sharing together.


Driving home it struck me . . .  during the hours we spent there yesterday, not once did I observe a harsh word exchanged or an unhappy face . . . smiles, laughter, and pleasantness were the order of the day. It was as though everyone had checked their personal agendas at the gate to enjoy sharing life together . . . a welcome respite from the argumentative, divisive social genre all to prevalent today. Wish everyone could purchase a season’s pass to such fleeting harmonious humanity.

Here’s a few pics of the fun and frolic we participated in. Wish y’all coulda’ joined us.

Keep Looking Up . . . His Best is Yet to Come!

  1. Now that you mention it, I didn’t witness any contention at our county fair, which I visited yesterday, either. There was competition, and I couldn’t see behind the scenes, but I would like to think it was all friendly and good fun!
