This old creaky house

I'll tell you what... if you are skittish, being in an old house at night is not for you.
I have been redoing an old house built 100 years ago and working alone into the wee hours of the night.

This house makes more groans, creaks, and bangs - every couple of minutes, I hear a noise.

To make matters worse, I go to load up my work van and forget I put one of those dang blasted heads on my seat. I open the door, and there it is, staring at me.
Talk about a sudden bad case of the heebie-jeebies.
I guess I got myself back for the time we worked late, and I placed a large rubber rat on the passenger seat of my work van. My nephew went to get in and just about killed himself, jumping back and slamming the door.
OH well, that's entertainment Carey style.

Metal Detecting

 One day I will hit the mother lode until then anyone lose a eyeglass case?

My detector was going nuts, dug and dug and dug
And there it was an eyeglass case.
If anyone around 1980 or so lost an eyeglass case at Featherstone Park and can tell me what was in it, you can rightfully claim it.
Amazes me how items dropped on the ground get buried so deep.
There is a lesson there about no global warming and how the earth heals itself but for now anyone lose an eyeglass case?
The rest of the items, one large bolt and who knows what the others were.

Hartford Fair in Croton, Ohio.

 Hey Gang,

Every year I try to attend a different fair. This summer, I ventured out to The Biggest Little Fair in the World  - Hartford Fair in Croton, Ohio.

So why is it called the Hartford Fair if it's in Croton? I don't know if you find out, please let me know. 

It's hidden away and hard to find; even with Mapquest, I got lost. It's in the middle of nowhere and farms. 

The fairgrounds are enormous, and food stands are everywhere. So we walked and walked and checked out all of them before settling on the Northridge Athletic Boosters Food Stand. We ordered the Viking burger, and it was great!

Still, I wasn't overly impressed with this fair. I thought it lacked merchant buildings and things to do. Though I really enjoyed the Fravel Museum on the grounds. Yeah - Fravel as in travel. I've been to travel museums before but never a Fravel Museum but now I can say I have.

You can spend a lot of time in it just looking at all the artifacts and reading the old newspaper clipping.

 The best part of this fair is that the grandstands are free to view the events. We watched the tractor pull. Watching these mechanical beasts lumber down the track, spewing smoke and the ear-numbing nose is impressive. 

                                                    Whoops this cow was camera shy. 

The price to get in was very reasonable - $8 per person. 

The Hartford Fair may not have been my favorite fair, but it was still a fun time.

So that's this summer 2022 fair review. 

Gotta Go-Go!

Nice Restroom

 One of the restrooms I used on my trip to WV

Very homey, clean and it reminded me of the GoGo Bus
It was at a mini gas station in Maryland
Should have made notes of exact location in case you ever wanted to use it

Gotta Go-Go!

Always follow your inner voice

 Always follow your inner voice, always!

Tonight while coming home, I had a choice of two roads to take.

The usual one or the other side street

My inner voice said "Take the other side street"!

So glad I listened. 

Laying in the middle of the street was a sack of potatoes, and only one was mashed.

I surveyed the scene; it is 2 am, no one is laying claim, they weren't infested, so into my car they go.

So remember, follow the road your inner voice tells you to travel.

It may not lead to a pot of gold, but it could lead to a sack of Idaho Gold.

What you be saying?

The problem with owning a Korean car and joining a group is that I need an interpreter.
Unlike the American car and van clubs I belong to, I can understand what they are trying to say.
Here is an example:
Hyundai Accent i hatchback 1994
In 1994, hyundai accent i hatchback looks good, and you cannot dispute about it. In this 1994 accent could brag good technical specs. Looking at these images of hyundai accent i hatchback version of 1994 year it is hard to said that you do not want to have this car. Friends, as you know, our authors leaving in different countries, that is why we good knows, how in 1994 hyundai accent i hatchback looks.
Sounds to me like a Biden speech.
