Wanted to get at least a little time tooling around the NC State Fair this week, so I headed out this morning for a couple of hours before the crowds turn up in force. For a little while I thought it might rain, but the clouds parted and it became a beautiful day. Mr. Simon's and I had a discussion about what fair weather is supposed to be. "Well...there's fair weather...and then then's fair weather...two completely different things!...I do better when it's fair weather." Mr. Simon's sells great authentic rootbeer floats. Huge ones for $5.00. I was a little bloated this morning after having one at 10am.
Worked as a photographer in Raleigh for over 30 years in various capacities from news photojournalism and sports photography in the 80's to corporate annual report and advertising into the 2000's. Simon has produced greeting cards which have sold over 3 million copies and counting.
