Its fair time in East Texas (again) As many of you know, Rudy's mother has a food booth at the fair so we spend lots of hours there helping them. The food is really good and its actually fun to work there and get to see all the people. This year is weird. The exhibit buildings are near empty. There used to be 3 exhibit buildings with people advertising their wares.: My daddy used to have a booth for Crawford Hollywood Doors, featuring the "Genie" automatic door opener,Insurance companies giving quotes and free pencils and balloons, siding companys with their drawing a day (good way to get your # so they could call you at a later date to try to sell you siding ect...), make-up (Mary Kay, Avon anyone?),new storm windows, COFFEE (I used to work in that one) samples of bread (little loafs) the sheriffs department, the radio stations, the fire department, The 3 exhibit buildings are EMPTY! The mayfair building where they judge art work, arts and crafts, quilts ect...is 1/2 empty. Harvey Hall is about 3/4 full, but nothing like it was in days gone by... There used to be no space for any vendors. This year there are about as many empty slots as their are taken ones. Some of the vendors that came have already left. The rides are just walk up and get on, no waiting.Noah was the only one riding the train! Rudy's mom is barely selling enough to stay open. So many vehicles being vandalized and broken into in the last couple years, people just dont want to take a chance. I feel like this "era" is ending. I think the fair is dying. I am sad...
Mic 7:5 Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom. Mic 7:6 For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man's enemies [are] the men of his own house. Mic 7:7 Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. Mic 7:8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD [shall be] a light unto me. Mic 7:9 I will bear the indignation of the LORD, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, [and] I shall behold his righteousness.
