Get Your Happy On

I got my Happy on at the Western Washington Fair today. ("Get Your Happy On" is this year's theme...) Man, it was hot and crowded.


These two flowers were getting alot of attention. Their movements were alien like. Very cool but a little on the creepy side.
The main reason I went, of course, was to get some bunny pictures. They are only there for 3 or 4 days.  I took about 350 pics, several of this character.  He was my favorite of the day.
After about three hours I started losing my Happy so I got my $8 beef and cheese peroshki and headed for home.

Fair Season

Fall is here. I am sorry to see Summer go; I think it is my favorite season. I like the transition of one season to the next too. Winter to Spring - the early flowers, things greening up and brighter skies. Spring to Summer - longer, warm days and open windows. The flowers! Summer to Fall - crickets in late August, cool foggy mornings and warm, sunny afternoons and the turning of leaves. Fall to Winter - stormy skies and rain, (that's right, I do like stormy skies and rain...) and cozying up inside.
Fall means the art show at the Fair.  This year I entered two miniatures, an acrylic painting of a cat named Gracie, and a colored pencil of my favorite subject. Gracie is about 3" x 4.5". Clovis is matted to a size of 2.5" x 3.5". 

What's your favorite season and why?

Push and Pull

Each night when it is time to let Clovie out of his room I move the fencing away so he can go upstairs to play. Lately I've noticed I have a little helper. I pull the fencing out while Clovis insists on (impatiently) pushing.  Am I not fast enough or what?
Free at last...
