Cause I’m Happy (State Fair Of Texas)

My day at the State Fair of Texas was something that made me happy.  It was drama free.  The weather was perfect. We parked our car at a parking lot across from the TRE (Trinity Railroad Express) downtown Ft. Worth (at the Intermodal Center) and caught the train.  We enjoyed our ride along with others going to the fair on a very clean and comfortable train.  The train let us off at Victory Center @ American Airlines Center where we caught another train that dropped us off at entrance to the fair.  At the gate we presented the attendants with our Coke product, got our discount coupon for entrance to the fair for $6 and we were off to say hello to Big Tex who does look a bit younger.  The fairway was clean, not too many people, and everything looked new.  Most importantly the grease was new for all the fried foods.

As the pictures will show, I found what makes me really happy–Fletcher’s Corny Dogs (hint, hint, don’t stop at the one at the entrance, it is too crowded.  There are several more inside the fair, and the one in the children’s area seems to be the least busiest.

After riding one ride, walking many miles and enjoying the sights, we boarded our train back to Victory Center @ American Airlines Center, caught our train back to Fort Worth and made it back home in time for the evening new, and I was happy!!

Remember, “thisisyourbestyear”.  Enjoy and be happy.

This is my best year ever, and it can be yours too. When I turned 40, I thought it was the end of life as I knew it. When I turned 50, I knew it was the end. It was the end, the end of that year--nothing more and nothing less. I've retired, gone to another career, started a business, and have kept writing. I've taken classes including glass blowing, swing dancing and so much more. I'm making each year, my best year.
