Chicks dig me

Baby chicks, that is.

Besides riding in a bike rally this weekend, I went to an old-fashioned county fair. My son wanted to go; he wanted to meet friends and ride the rides. If he didn't have friends to ride the rides with, he'd want me to ride with him. I don't do rides, thank you. I have an occasional, unpredictable problem with motion sickness. I'm sure people are still talking about the time, two years ago, when I barfed on the Tilt-A-Whirl at the Texas State Fair. And an hour after that, in an ostrich's feed bucket. And an hour after that, in front of Starbucks. Anyway, I'd had a long day, so I mostly held back and walked around.

One of my favorite parts of the fair is looking at the farm animals. That barnyard smell is the make-or-break quality of the fair for a lot of people; they either love it or hate it. I figure if I'm at the fair in the first place, I may as well enjoy what makes it unique. (I draw the line at fried Twinkies, though.)

About nine or ten baby chicks escaped from their pen and were following me around. I had to corral them (I was picking up chicks, get it?) and put them back in. I never did figure out what the attraction was. Must be my animal magnetism.

Happy to hear you was able to pick up some chicks and enjoyed the fair.

Off topic! Check your post in the Health Journal about bloating. I found some information about bloating and what to do about it.

Best Wishes.
Take care.
Keep On Blogging!!!! Have a great day.

The first time we took our kids to Disneyland (Paris) my ex fell about laughing at me feeling sick on the teacups. The tamest ride in the place and it made me sick as a dog! All morning he was laughing about mum being sick in the teacups.

Then we did the Star Wars ride, which, as you probably know, isn't really a ride, they run a film and jiggle the seats a bit. When we came out the other side he was actually green. Imagine getting motion sickness without motion! He stopped laughing after that.

The chicks just picked up on your nature. You're very gentle and caring with animals. They could just tell.

pootle, I'm glad it's not just me who has problems with motion sickness. I thought I'd ruined my family's vacation to Hawaii last year when I got sick on a boat taking us to a reef to go snorkeling. As I was throwing up over the side, a woman came along from the other direction with a big plate of food. We both looked at each other with expressions of, "I paid good money for this?!" I learned some valuable lessons before going on anything that might make me sick: don't drink coffee, eat as little as possible, take Bromine, and--most important--don't get on the damn thing if I don't have to!
