time for more free stuff
State Fair tickets you shall get
for witty entries


What is a haiku?
five-seven-five syllables
Haikus need not rhyme

Haven't Been to Fair
Since was a young lass; Tickets
Too much. John, kick down!

State Fair memories
Include lots of rides, midway
games, Cotton Candy

Pink throw-up is not
A memory I'd like to
Relive in Oh-Nine

No cotton candy
For me, just the exhibits
Rides for the kiddies

John, help with tickets?
Bought a house and car repairs
Wiped us clean, sadly.

No free tickets means
No fair for the Lavine crew
How sad we would be.
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING MY GIRL.
We could not be doing this without you.
Much love and gratitude.

Ok, three for your perusal:

1)
Smell of food wafting
All that yummy stuff on sticks
Diet gone awry

2)
Squeals of kids on rides,
Guilty pleasures eating junk
Vibrating foot pads

3)
Tickets, parking, rides...
Wallets thin at end of day
Tired and happy grins

Tossing of a ring
It's another miss, no prize
I must get that bear!

That's funny 'roscoe,
I did the opposite thing.
Folsom to 'Jose.

I want some tickets
I think I would deep fry them
Tasty fried tickets

Pondering just how
Many tickets John plans to
Give away this year.

Also pondering
Untimely death of fellow
Folsomite... Needed?

Won't stoop to murder
But hope we're in the running
To win some tickets!

(Also, I agree
Mylo's deep-fried ticket is
A top-notch idea.)
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING MY GIRL.
We could not be doing this without you.

For days. Does quantity count
For nothing with you?
