 Fun girls....
I love girls that aren't worried about what people think...
 
 Our new Big Tex....
he caught fire last year at the end of the Fair...
a electrical problem..
now he is back....big and strong....
 
 everyone has their photo taken with him....
cameras are flashing all around...
 
 we love hats....
a little too pricey though....
 
 there is a lot at the fair..
not just food....animals....rides...
 
 there is art work....shows....
exhibits....
 
The bird show is one of my favorite shows to watch...
this is the last year they will be at our Fair....
I'm glad I got to see it...
We have been raining all day here in Texas....
the temps have dropped...
we need the rain...but it sure causes problems...
I wish we could have rain at night while we sleep....
 sun shine during the day....
but Mother Nature has her own way of doing things...

Love your idea about raining only at night. Great shots. I am trying to imagine the tall guy on fire.

I think Tex's head is too small, but maybe that is the angle...
I love the sculptures!!
