Today my husband Steve and I went out in our hot rod to the Orange County fairgrounds. For 10 years now the fairground hosts a hot rod show that benefits prostate cancer. It is a good cause and kind of fun. I think the car enthusiasts like it much more than I do. Personally I like to go just to have a chance to hang out with Steve in a different setting than our family room couch!
The people that attend this fair are a treat to watch. There were parents pulling children in wagons, dogs in wagons, wheelchairs, young and fit, young and tattooed, old and tattooed, old and fat, one woman was holding a baby that wasn't even a month old! I saw one lady that I call over-done. Picture a woman, very tan, bleached blonde hair, about 55, short shorts, tank top and high heals showing off a perfect tattoo on her ankle. People, this is a noisy, dirty, walking event! Then there was a girl maybe 18 who was beautiful with a slim body. She had stringy black hair down to her waist that I thought was a wig, jeans that were as low as a bikini bottom. The jeans were made so it looked like black panties were pinking through the top and they had more holes than material. These pants with a short tank top and to top it all off was her belly tattoo. I couldn't make out what exactly the design was but it went from side to side and was right below her belly button. I ask you, what will that tottoo look like when she is 9 months pregnant? It is a scary thought. And here she was with her boyfriend in a mostly man event. More than anything I was concerned for her safety and wondering what her mother thought. I am not judging, to be honest I didn't dress much different when I was a kid. The less clothing the better was my motto. My mother must of had nightmares every night. Today I see everything from a "mom" perspective!
Right now I am enjoying the quiet sound of my fingers hitting the keys and the soft breeze of the fan overhead. Life is good. Enjoy your day!
