Not the Roman Variety/Thursday Doors

Last August, I snapped a photo of The Coliseum located on the Missouri State Fairgrounds. It has a long history and makes a pretty grand presence next to all the concession tents, parked vehicles and trailers.

But it’s hard to really appreciate it with all that overcrowded parking.

Yesterday evening, before sunset and before the clouds in the distance rolled in, I was able to dash over and get this opportunity at a picture. You see, there’ll be another crowd here this weekend with a “Tough Mudder Mud Run” event. It’s quite a big deal to some and I wish them well, but not my cup of tea.

My husband tells me at the time of this writing that he has a newspaper of the Reagan visit and a coin in our ‘safe place’. Nice to know now when it’s so safe, I can’t get to it until later.  (chuckle)

Here’s the back view. Fence in the middle left is leading to the cattle barns that I’ll show you some other time. Keeps the run-away steers a little less life-threatening 😉

For the ‘Doors’ section of this post, I present some barn doors. Locked for now. Saving a view from inside another day.

My favorite is something you see now-a-days on home improvement channels. I love those sliding doors. I have an idea I could use this for as we speak.

gonna add it to my Honey-Do list. have to say these things softly.

    • Last time we were in Ft Worth we considered going to the state fair but it rained so much we decided to pass. Huge regret now. We are about to cool down significantly starting tomorrow the weather man says.
