Dispatch From The Ex



Friday, Sept. 3 โ€“ Canadian National Exhibition, Toronto



I've been attending the CNE (or the 'Ex') annually since 1837. Last night, Karen and I helped keep my streak alive. Below are some of the various sites and smells we witnessed.



Like this guy. He rocks. HAH!








Spray-paint guy turns t-shirts into dramatic works of art. Like this one he is making for someone named Betty.

Two stupid things in one sign. SCORE!








According to the Cinesphere, it's 10:06.

We saw this circus-guy show. I took some video of it, but I had the settings thing set too small. So you'll have to settle for the next 5 stills:




















And finally ...


Welcome to the Midway, kids!









Till next year.
