I’ve been drawing a bit…

Jane likes to make drawing difficult by sleeping on me. She'd prefer to sleep on my paper, of course, but my lap is acceptable.

  1. You rock. Cats, artistic, state fair and lantern festival enthusiast…counselor. Awesome. <3—<<< I have never been to a lantern festival. I get giddy about just about anything Asian culture-related. I've never been to a laser show, either. Your state fair looks a bit more artsy than the one I know. But, the food looks the same. I prefer Greek and pizza treats. And, I adore cats.

    1. Gee thanks! Our State Fair is huge, so we only did a few things yesterday. We’ll see the rest of it next week (animals, horticulture,and more food of course). Stay tuned!

  2. Who’s we? You actually go twice and see the whole fair? Gee, I wish I had company like that. Everyone I ever go with can only tolerate so much and waste time on the stupid marketplaces selling “swag”, hot tubs, cleaning supplies and windows. I like to see the animal exhibits, try a few new foods and maybe catch a few shows on free stages. My biggest complaints are usually the crowds, the heat and the price of most things.
