a) a cage full of mutant rabbits
b) 2 big bulls
c) a bag or two of mini donuts
d) a near death experience on The Inverter
e) hot buttered scones
f) the military
g) the best doggone hot dogs in the world!
i) All of the above
If you picked i (all of the above) you are correct! It's PNE time. Here are Wee Sarah and Donimo now, having just stepped through the gates. Note the anticipation in the air and on their faces! (Paul is anticipating too. He just stepped out of the frame before I pressed the shutter release. So he is anticipating about 2 inches to the right of the frame.)
The first order of business is to have a snicky snack. Sarah and Donimo showed restraint. Paul and I did not. In fact, I would be outright LYING if I denied having spent the day thinking about this:This:And this:Paul had a burger and I had a dog. With fried onions. Delicious.
And am I EVER glad I said yes.
So is Donimo. These scones were hot and buttered and slathered in jam.
This next photo begs the question: What would an UNfair scone taste like?
From here, we went to the Superdogs. The photos weren't stellar, so I won't post them. Let me tell you though that the dogs were fantastic. And the guy who danced with his dog to "Thank You For Being a Friend" brought Wee Sarah and I to tears.
This photo says it all. In the moments leading up to the ride, Wee Sarah was tense, Paul was a tad crazed (in denial I think) and Donimo? WHAT is that look on her face? THAT is joy. And peace. And love. (That is crazy is WHAT).
This is more my speed. It is not actually a ride.
Or THIS. This is what the PNE is all about isn't it?
I would have happily gone on the little Ferris wheel. But they REMOVED IT! And in its place, they left a really high Ferris wheel. Due to the fear of heights and such, I decided to stay on the ground and document the adventure. Note Donimo waving!
