Howard, it was nice to meet you in person today. For those that would care to put a face to a name, I am in the top pic, the guy with the beard. The little guy in green is my boy Trey. Next to me is my nephew Craig, and his dad Art. Great fathers day tradition to spend the day at the Stafford carnival.

Howard, great pictures. My husband and I go every year on Sunday, buy our corvette tickets for us and my dad, grab a beer in the tent, play the "rat game" & pull tabs. It's just such nice, clean fun. Next year, the Leroy firemen start off around 1pm or so, would need to call them for their start time, they walk down Rt 5 to Stafford, pulling their hand pump. I watch for them every year. I know you missed them this year, but next year(or even this year for a follow up interest story) you can get the story of how long they have done this etc and get a picture.

Howard, Great pic's. Few sounds bring back childhood memories better than the phrase "All ready now. Toss ball #1..." Glad to see "I Got it" has still "got it". Tom

I was thrilled that Fowler Taffy was there. It isn't a carnival without one stick, each, of cinnamon and spearmint.
