             I am a lighthearted gal


You know me, I like to make people smile.
So naturally, when I got to the front desk at my doctor’s office I thought it would  make people smile to see a nice message on the desk calendar.  You know what they look like.  A mini 3 ring binder. It is open, and one side has the month and the other side has the day. 
So, I just wrote   Happy day.  In nice cursive.  The pen was great, fine point, my favorite.
I am pretty sure it will make many  people smile
I am pretty sure it will make someone smile
It made me smile.
I was sort of smiling for almost an hour.  That was when the PA  ( Physician’s Assistant ) came into the examining room. 
“sorry I’m late” he said
“really?”  I said
He paused and looked puzzled and sort of like he never heard me.
“ You said you were sorry, and I just said really” ?  I said.
At that point I realized that this PA is not very lighthearted.

And when I had to pay $5.00 for being 10 minutes over the one free hour, I had to remind myself that I am lighthearted.
I was off to run several errands. An Avon customer who gave me a $20 for a $16.14 order, and told me to keep the change.  I didn’t, but it was so sweet. I am sure she is lighthearted . 
Then I stopped at Bartell’s where I found several things I needed 
( not on my list, but I will need them some day ) and I took my blood pressure and it is normal.  I am very lighthearted ..  Then I got to my car with a full basket and started to load Sabrina’s trunk 
( not MY trunk )  and this gentleman asked if he could help me .  I said yes, and thank you. Thank you very much.  
 I am sure he is a lighthearted man.

I hope you are feeling lighthearted too.

               Minnesota State Fair
                                                      they say it is the largest in the world
                                        well, the greatest anyway.

We got  to the fairgrounds about 10:30.  Hungry.
A good place to be hungry.
The theme for the fair  is food on a stick.
 And most of the time, it is .

There is a large education building and they have a booth that offers a school year calendar with your photo on it.
They take your photo for free
For three years we have had our picture taken with the grandkids     . ( you will have to trust me on this one, no digital, only on a wonderful calendar )

also in that building.
                                  the robotic ball challenge.

                                           keeping up with The Guard

                                      First food...
Beef Jerky....also, a cup of Norwegian coffee

                          the kind made with a raw egg.

                                     Next stop......
                                   this is the house that Steve built ↑ 
       The company is Cocoon.


                                               button making  ↑

                                               Look who came  to the fair !
                                 and who is driving a tractor !!

                                      Did Grampy cut this pile of wood ?

Chicken fried bacon, french fries and a burger

                                            Let's take a ride....
 Fresh strawberries and real whipped cream
                       good to the last drop
                            the very last drop.

  When you need a Pepsi,
               you will stop anywhere ( but 3 times ? )
             the crowd. but found   friends 

                            Cheese curds , don't leave the fair without them
                        or corn on the cob, or lemonade
  Prizes, kindness of the strongest Dad
                                       One more treat    Freshest peach
                            Is she trying to hide something?
                                 in her not too subtle shirt? 

Only at the fair ( or maybe your local airport )
