Topsfield Fair

People: me with plumtreeblossom May 2007
One of plumtreeblossom’s and my traditions is Topsfield Fair. This fall is extremely densely packed (among other things with a trip to North Carolina to see my niece and nephew, whom we remembered at the Midway!), and often when we go to Topsfield it’s very crowded, so this year we decided to take a day off work and go on a weekday. By chance, the day that worked for us was today, opening day. The rain made it even less crowded than it otherwise would have been; we got to park right by an entrance. (We’re used to getting satellite parking and having to take a shuttlebus.)

We had a predictably fabulous time. Sheep and goats and cows and vegetables and bees and honey and baby chicks and piglets and oh so much fair food! And I was enjoying it all with my darling honeywuzzle.

Life is good.

Oh, unrelatedly, last night was our first full-cast rehearsal of the one-act play we’re in. This was the first time we’d seen/performed the entire play (as opposed to individual scenes with just the people in them) since the original run-through. It was lots of fun, and I think it was going to be great!

It’s another festival of one-act radio dramas. This one is original pieces, and Hallowe’en-themed. We’re both in “The Crasher”, about a bestselling author (and recovering addict) who moves to a sleepy little town in Maryland to get her life back together and focus on her next book. My part is small (but nifty), but plumtreeblossom’s got the lead!

I love fairs, but I haven't been well enough to go to one for several years now. I miss them.

I'm glad you and Plum got to go. Keep having lots of fun!
