Spencerville Fair last weekend

It was a cool, but perfect day. Unfortunately, there was an 80-year-old man who disappeared this past weekend. The OPP were searching. I hope he was found.

But, the highlights?
Scarey crows, scarey clowns, biting camels ($6 for a 30-sec. ride), not-so-hoppy kangaroo, cheeky horses, and lots of rides.

My favourite shot!

And on the way home, via Prescott, the marina and some
interesting garden sculptures!

Great that the senior was found before he came to any harm.
As always, lots of interesting things at the local fairs.

This looks very interesting, but the animals do not look happy.

Fun pictures - sorry about the elder who got lost. Hopefully they will find him soon. Once my wife befriended a teenage camel who later got loose on an airport runway (long story). The owner could not get the camel to come to him and would just run away risking airport operations. Amazingly my wife wrangled that camel without incident and he really seemed to 'love' her. I wanted to take him home as a pet, but then I would have been in the doghouse with the city for having 'farm animals' in the neighborhood.
All true and thanks to you for making me remember the story. W.C.C.

I'm going to miss our fair again this year. They are so much fun. And I'm glad they found the man. That is so scary. - Margy
