Still riding the Crazy Mouse at the State Fair of Texas. (My second favorite State Fair tradition)
We always buy the picture….The one they take just as the car is about to drop.
Sometimes we ride it alone;
Sometimes a friend or 2 will join us; like the Pecks…
Or our friend, Leslie…..
Or even my brother Ben,
But this year…..
…..the carney insisted on shoving a lonely little boy in between us,
Don’t think he enjoyed it as much as we did.
(Interesting way to see how much weight we have each gained/lost over the years……I’m down about 25 pounds, and Jamie has lost just over 50. Zoom up to the fourth and fifth pictures. It doesn’t look like anyone else would fit in that cart with us)
Looks like fun. You both look great. I hate battling the bulge, but I keep trying. What are you doing that is making the scale go down?
Hi Carole, honestly, we’ve been eating healthier. No more carbs, sugar and salt. It boils down to Cokes, beer, icecream, sausage breakfast sandwiches, and flavored coffee creamer………..it’s been a really hard summer. Especially on vacation……..but it’s nice to actually see the results in pictures.
Those are great pictures! We thought that ride looked like only astronauts would like it. So we carefully stepped away before the grandkids started clamoring for it. Y’all look svelte.
Thanks Nikki, there are certainly more “vomit-inducing” rides to choose from. ……and we feel svelte.
You two look mahvelous!!!
Awe thanks Jean, hope we’re able to keep it off ( you’ve seen how we eat at the Fair)
Love the photos thru the years. Congrats on losing some pounds. I’m trying to do that too-soooo hard.
Thanks Leslie. It was easy. Just stop eating carbs, sugar, salt, Cokes, beer, coffee creamer , sausage breakfast sandwiches, and ice cream. The pounds just melt off…😩
