9 © Florence,s Crner "Fairs" Boy, times have changed. I can remember when the Lincoln churches served deli- cious fried chicken and other dinners under the bleachers at the Logan County Fair grounds. I used to take a basket lunch with all of the" fixings to the State Fair. Not any more. Too many vendors. Time does pass on. Kenneth and I used to spend the whole week at the State Fair. We always rented a small trailer. I'd get up early, sit on one of the benches, and watch the world go by. I It was fun also, watching the rides be put up or . taken down. It was good past time for me while Kenneth sold his wares. * €,,,4 On the Lighter Side - We were spending an eve- ning with friends Jan and Jean and we all decided to watch TV. Jean was reading us our viewing ; choices, and one was the movie Fun with Dick : and Jane, starring Jane Fonda and George Segal. Hearing this, Jean's six-year-old daughter leaped over to the bookshelf exclaiming, "Forget it. You won't like it." Then she showed her first grade reader, Fun with Dick and Jane. "I read the" book," she said. "It was lousy." Food for Thought - Isaiah 41:1o Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed for I am your God.
