Weekly Winners: August 16-22

For some reason, as I was editing my photos this week, I kept thinking of that jingle from that fabulous French fast-food place Jacques-in-Zee-Box ... "Yippee yi-ay, mini-sirloin burgers ... YEAH!"

I have no idea why -- except, of course, for our trip to the rodeo at the county fair. Yippee yi-ay, y'all!

The wheel goes 'round and 'round:

We watched the turkey races:

... which made J-bear laugh -- a lot:

Riding through the flames of certain death:

My fave photo for this week. Just sayin'.

Lassoing the horsey:

Embracing the blur:

Yippee yi-ay ... etc.

Some people can stay on the bull ...

... And some people can't

Oh, and there was a high school football picnic, too, attended by the cheer squad in all their glory. Here's my varsity girl:

Visit the lovely Lotus --->here<--- for more weekly winners from photographers who probably won't gift you with an earworm (yippee yi-ay ...) when you visit them.

You're welcome!

Great shots at the fair and rodeo! The flame jumping cowboy is awesome. Woohoo!

You sure know how to set the stage. That first one was like OMGWOW!

Great set, Janet!

How fun! I thought the first shot was going to be my favorite, but the turkey race was hilarious! Great set this week.

What a fun carnival! Love the first shot and the guy ridding through fire.

Fair season is my favorite time of the year. When the Crawfish Festival comes to Biloxi, my boys always laugh themselves silly at the pig races. Names like "Tammy Swinette" kill. Good old fashioned fun can't be beat.

That looks like a lot of fun. said...

OH! OH! Can I place bets on those turkeys? I gotta call my bookie!

Tammy Howard said...

What a fun day!

Did anyone else notice J Bear's earrings?

I couldn't get past the turkey races. You got some amazing shots there, but your two girls will always be my favorites. Love to see J-Bear laughing out loud!
