An evening at the Fair

I am too tired to write much tonight as we spent the late afternoon and evening at a local fair put on by the Sons of Italy. It was a family affair that had something for all ages. I really enjoyed the entertainment by a local singing group who seem to have been together for quite some time. They were really good and put on a terrific show featuring the songs of the late 50's. For a bunch of old guys they could still sing and bring back the memories.

I am really worn out from being outside and standing most of the time except for when we ate and the short time I sat and listened to the music. I haven't been to anything like this for a long time and was sort of wondering how I would take several hours of it, but it turned out to be a fine evening. I think the fair runs again tomorrow, with fireworks in the evening. I probably will beg out though.

Wouldn't you know it, I spent $80 on the laptop charger Friday morning. Of course, my original charger arrived in the mail on Friday afternoon, so I repackaged the new one as best I could and will return it tomorrow. Best Buy will likely charge me a restocking fee, but maybe I'll get lucky. The motel didn't charge me for the mailing.

The boys are still constantly wanting to be in the truck, especially since they discovered the fun of honking the horn - loud and long. I'll have to be careful when I drive it again as I know some of the buttons on the dashboard have been pushed. My granddaughters really wear me out, but the boys do it more quickly. They are physical and intense, and do everything with gusto!

Maybe I'll get around to writing about the last part of my trip tomorrow. I still feel like sleeping most of the day, which is not at all natural. I just hope some good days are ahead.

I've decided I want to go into the city and will ride the train in one of these days. I have never been to the art museum and also want to visit the NYC Public Library. Maybe I can have lunch with my niece - no shortage of good eateries in New York. I hope both she and my granddaughter (Ara) will be here for Joshua's birthday party next weekend. It will be so good to see them again as being around them has always seemed to energize me.


  1. Boys definitely very physical. And when you're not used to all that energy, it can wear you out. The fair sounds like fun. I love those local kinds of things. Especially in the smaller towns. And you should be wore out from all that driving. We only cover about 150 to 200 miles a day and then we try to stay a few days so Jim can rest before we head on again.

  2. Oh - and one other thing. Those time zone changes really do me in for a week or so.

  3. Hard traveling can sure knock the stuffings out of a person alright & I find it takes a few days for the mind & body to settle down into a normal relaxing routine again.

  4. I don't often attend fairs, but when I do, I'm sure to find where the entertainment is so I can sit down! :)

  5. Glad you got a charger. Boy, you are so much braver than I am, I would never venture into a big city, unless my life depended on it. Just gives me chills thinking about going into NYC!! Good luck.

  6. You might enjoy reading the blog of a lady who is just starting out RV'ing in a short Class C unit that seems like it might suit your needs. She also has a dog, albeit a much smaller one than Lady!
