Watching the Jumping Ride - Washington State Fair 2013 - Puyallup WA

Amusement rides are meant to thrill and entertain riders.

:  :  :

Here,

at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup,

a young boy sits on the exit steps of the ride called ‘Jumping,’

watching those brave enough to swirl dizzily round and round, up and down.

:  :  :

I’ve been ‘Doing the Puyallup’ all my life.

Arriving at the Puyallup Fair in 1956,

when I was six years old,

somehow I had my hand in the way and the middle finger on my right hand was smashed

in the door of my parents ’49 Plymouth.

Mom and dad wanted to take us home.

Regardless of the pain,

I wanted to continue on into the Fair for all that awaited us there!

My sister could ride all those swirly rides,

but not me,

my speed was the merry-go-round, fun house

and tunnel of love with the boats.

I still cannot ride on amusement rides,

they don’t make me sick,

they make me crazy scared,

like panic attack time.

I do LOVE photographing them though!

What about you, can you ride on all the rides at the fair?
