We moved on to the fairgrounds in Missoula, Montana, and couldn't wait to check out the famous carousel downtown. All the horses are hand carved, each unique and with its own story. Shoving aside all the little kids, we climbed aboard.
Austin and Nancy are ready to go, while Margarite is adjusting her seat belt.
Richard is at the starting gate.
As are Herb, Donna, Gene, and Joanne. I'm not sure what Marvin is doing.
Karen looks excited unlike the little girl next to her.
I think I caught Carolyn unaware.
But I think Bertie gets the prize for being the most enthusiastic. Just look at that smile.
I took all these pictures while the carousel was still, but Ron actually got a picture of me while it was moving at a million miles an hour.
If you don't believe me about the speed, check out this video. I don't even recognize anybody, they're just a blur.
As further proof, look at Maynard trying to hang on!
We were all horrified by this poor dog who was there for some kind of a dog contest. I can just see how embarrassed she is.
