While I wait for Tree Guy, lookit!
A wide shot from the Ferris Wheel, looking NNE:I have been known to claim that you can live (almost) like the 1937 well-to-do on a less-than-average 21st-Century paycheck; that Old Time Summer Kitchen lacks only an automatic clothes dryer, a dishwasher (assuming that's a washing machine at the far right) and air-conditioning to have everything a person could want in her kitchen, and has a few things mine lacks, like a proper Hoosier baking cabinet (no room in my galley kitchen!) and a wall-mounted coffee grinder. ...Hotter'n the hammers of Hades, baking in even a summer kitchen in August, though. Speaking of appliances, there's a nice gasoline-engine Maytag washer in this set-up. Oh, laugh --but does yours have a throttle and clutch? The little engines on these appear to be a foundation of Maytag's runs-forever reputation.A first glimpse of the miniature donkeys (and baby!) Tam is so taken with. They are cute!Mascots! Fellow in the foreground is sure he's seen them before, somewhere:
And I'll close with another Ferris wheel photo, this one looking due East. See the big tan-brick Coliseum just right of center? There'll be an architectural detail from it in the next batch.
