My mind was was a bit foggy this past weekend
with so much going on,
that I missed lots of opportunities to capture street art.
The first two photos are from last year's Pumpkin Festival Parade.
This year I concentrated on the heavy machinery and tractor
entries to use for a slide show card for my grandson in Texas,
who LOVES such things especially backhoes.
So I had to go hunting in last year's pics for this post.
My son's fatherly responsibility was tested when his 9-yr.-old daughter
very much wanted to go on this ride, but not alone.
He could not let her down--she was being quite careful on how she spent her tickets
and this was one she saw looming above the festivities,
as they drove to our house,
and instantly liked.
She looked at others as we perused the offerings,
but this won out.
The riders are strapped in as they stand.
Their heads are protected by buffers on each side.
Peyton was glowing after the ride.
Her dad's face was perhaps a slight shade of green---and he was a bit queasy,
but also happy he could do this for his little girl.
