Can you sort of see Beatrix JAR gearing up here?
Can you kind of imagine Julie Doxsee and her knives?
Can you work with me and see the fabulous Frances Gumm here? Furthermore, can you imagine the inimitable Laura Brandenburg performing a piece with them?
here, Julie's got some much better photos.

Right now, I ask you to please note the new reading listed on the right sidebar, for Ms. Julie Doxsee is coming to town. Please join us at the Bedlam Theater at 9:30 on August 20th to celebrate her newest book, Undersleep, when Ms. Laura Brandenburg, Mr. Paul Dickinson and I will be joining Julie in reading. Not only that, but Frances Gumm and Beatrix Jar will play!

Here is Erin, my fellow reader who organized the event, as a bunny, and Patti as a duck.
These photos are from the Beltrami County Fair. I forgot to take any poetry pictures.
This photo is from the chicken dressing competition. This girl crocheted that little outfit for her chicken. When I heard there'd be a chicken dressing competition, I was skeptical and a little apprehensive. What a relief to find out that it's just a bunch of kids who love their chickens so much. My other favorite was a boy who dressed as a fireman and had his chicken in a little yellow rain poncho. He placed third. Though I wanted him to win, I begrudgingly accepted the argument that his costume was perhaps doing more work than his chicken's.
This is my only photo from "Crazy Days." All the stores put a bunch of stuff on sale out on the sidewalk. The Ben Franklin has grab bags for five bucks.
Here are Paul and Babe and me doing my "I can't stand still for a picture" dance.
