Louisville's Pagan Pride Day


Me at Louisville's Pagan Pride Day
on the Waterfront Park.

Dragon Bob (Once Upon a Dragon Time) invited Candy and me to Pagan Pride Day.  Candy and I headed down there armed with Google directions.  They were very good, until they said to turn right onto third street.  I thought sure we needed to turn left (which we did).  We finally found this big crowd near the Belle of Louisville, so we asked the guy on the parking gate.  He said he didn't know what the crowd was, but they were all Japanese.  Another lady said she thought we needed to go way down River Road.  With her assistance we headed (finally in the right direction).

We spotted Captain Amos (Bob Watters) and his parnter Dieter Zimmerman - Drunk N Sailor.  You cannot miss Captain Amos' red feathered Pirate hat!!!  I told her we should follow them as they were likely heading to the festival, too!  I rolled down the window and yellow at them, only to have Captain Amos yelling back, "Where the Hell is this Pagan Thing?"  Well, blind leading the blind I guess.

We finally made it!!  Found Dragon Bob (in the middle) with Captain Amos and Dieter not far behind.
Sort of like old Renny Home Week...lol.  Captain Amos and Dieter were passing out flyers for Talk Like a Pirate Day.  Dragon Bob was performing at the festival

Candy looked lovely sitting by the river

 She took a nifty picture of me.

 Dragon Bob (Robert Barker) was glad to see Candy made it.

 The River is so lovely here, hard to see how big the Ohio River is from this little branch

Competition in the Dragon Taming Department!!!

Perfect way to enjoy the River Front

Kentucky State Fair -- What a Day




Candy and I decided to tackle the Kentucky State Fair this year.  She really enjoyed the Oldham County Fair, but couldn't believe when I told her how huge the state fair was.  Well, she learned! :-)




There were so many beautiful quilts




We checked out the arts and crafts first, because two of her dolls were entered.  They had won blue at the County Fair, but we didn't get the notice for entry timeline soon enough, so she could only enter the two from the County Fair that won blue.




Her Knight & Lady, which she made for me using a special crochet stitch, won third place.  These dolls were not meant for competition, so we were delighted with the win.






got some great shots of the two carousels they had






Candy in her rainbow cap I bought her.  Think she looks adorable!!!




Me in the East Wing food court enjoying a lemonade.



All in all, we had a great time.  Spent 8 hours looking at everything, eating pulled pork BBQ, and riding the merry go round.  Candy is already planning what she will enter in the fair come next year.
