013Not much time for a YAAN this morning. Ready to go to Town for the Show.  Last year was my first year back in Bello for a long time.

Well, let’s sit down after all. Things seemed to have changed for the day and I might be leaving the Show until tomorrow. That means sitting down time. The eBENCH calls.

Night time now. It was a day that went from plan to plan and turned out pretty well. I tend to turn up at places and events early and am gone early. Today I went in the afternoon. It worked well.  I was going to use a photo from 2010 to tell the story of the Show but now I have today’s ones so I can pull out a random shot and let the story tell you about it.

THE YAAN.

The dodg em cars were round the far side of the Show today. The last of the rides and there were very few people at them. Maybe they are now out of fashion. There were at least 3 truly wild rides. The Ghost House still exists and a Mirror Maze.  Not much for tiny kids but a good range of others including a bungee jumping kind of rig out. They had Clowns there and a shooting range with real slug games and blue gorillas as prizes.

The Bellingen Show is held in Autumn and the leaves today were red and yellow. For the first time in ages, it was held in dry weather without mud. All in all, it made it a Chocolate box kind of perfect day.

I hope dodg em cars don’t vanish before I find the courage to go on them.
