    I'm with you Barb - once a year we head out to the Carp (Ontario) Fair at
    the end of September. It's a celebration for us - my oldest daughter was
    born the morning after I had coffee and cinnamon buns there in '93.....we
    take in the big horses, the not-so-hot mid-way, spend way too much trying to
    win a stuffed somethingorother, check to see if my Uncle Blair placed in the
    maple syrup entries (he usually does), fill out a ballot to win a quilt from
    the church ladies, and eat mini donuts and Beavertails, donairs, and drink
    lemonade....and eat candy floss, and fruit dipped in chocolate
    sauce.....and......get a henna tattoo....and check out the 'artisan' booths
    ....and it's almost not a coutry fair anymore. But we go anyway. We look
    forward to it.

    can't wait, actually.

    I have my regular faves, but perhaps I'll look for something different this
    year, since your fair fare seems so bizarre....

    Goomba's gonna get you for that attribution.

    No Venturi that I know of. Hotel National dining room, twas. Thing is,
    cookery clothing is not revealing nor sexy. You have to drop things and
    hope they'll pick it up, you know.

    around here that gets a person in trouble.
    if i pinch anyone's butt it has to be someone
    i know quite well who won't file charges.

    but otherwise, yay for liberated women!
    i wish there were 2-3 billion more my age,
    all of them wanted me, i was immortal
    and physically fit. then reality intrudes
    and i wake up from my daydream, haha.

    Check the Yellow Pages. I'm pretty sure that trollop lessons are
    offered in just about any city of any size.
