I grabbed this pic during one of McMurtry’s warm ups before the concert. Even before the concert, the stands begin to fill, and I’m sure it’s because people like to see McMurtry’s warm up as well.

I know it sounds crazy, but, growing up, I never went to a fair, not one—at least not that I can remember. We just weren’t that kind of family.

So, when my husband and I moved to Maine and I discovered all the fairs every summer, I was insistent. I had to go to one.

But the first fair we went to—the first fair of my life—didn’t go well. This fair shall remain nameless, as I don’t want my bad experience to bias others, but, yeah, it didn’t go well for me.
