After that last post I needed something more positive to report. I went to a little traveling carnival that landed here for a few days. I was wary of being asked to leave, but I was so wrong. The carnies were wonderful and eager to talk about their new ferris wheel, which they had just recently bought used.
I asked them where they found a used ferris wheel. Online. Silly me.
I took lots of photos with my new camera, which I've just posted on Flickr, here.
