Meet the physical clowns! (Physical here meaning clowns I actually own and not ones I want/want to play)
The tall one is Blossom, the red head is Choo Choo and the baby is Strawbaby!
I’m unclear on their breeds though :c
missing the LA county fair :(
County Fair - Jarlerine
“Well I wanted to go piss off some coconut vendors if nobody minde– Ow!”
“Bill, watch your language!” Katherine snapped, trying to save their daughter’s childhood innocence from such language but hitting him upside the head in doing so.
To explain, Jack, Bill, Kath and Darcy had been taken out to a county fair by Bill’s parents, wanting to get to know their daughter.
Asteria-Eos Clarrissa Plumber, on the other hand, showed absolutely no interest in them whatsoever. Darcy promised this was just the same as she treated everyone else.
“I might like to get ice cream should anyone be interested.” Katherine opted, looking around the small circle.
“Well, how about see ask what the bambino wants first?” Bill’s mother pointed out, smiling and looking up to the small child on Jack’s shoulders. “Where do you want to go, little one?”
Asteria-Eos laughed, bouncing rather excitedly and pointed up to the nearby field.
“The maize maze, huh?” Jack laughed a little. “You want to get lost with Dada?”
There was a perfectly content moment where it seemed that everybody was happy with the situation and nobody was about to refuse anything.
That was until the three or four year old came out with a very certain, very stubborn-
Jack was taken aback slightly, almost rendered speechless.
“No? Then who do you want to go with? You’ve been with your Mama and Papa-” (by whom he meant Katherine and Bill, who society had been told were her biological parents, against all odds) “-all day, do you want to go with Grand-mère and Grand-père?” (That was Bill’s parents, of course.)
“No.” Came the same stubborn reply. “Otet.” She answered the silent question as Jack set her down in the grass, pointing to Darcy.
“She called me her Otet.” The Reid breathed.
This was quite the revelation, you see, because, as Katherine recalled very simply as Asteria-Eos hugged Darcy’s legs, she’d screamed or cried whenever Darcy had touched her up until now. They’d theorised together, watching her sleep when she was even smaller, that the infant didn’t trust him because he hadn’t held or tried to play with her until she was at least six months old, rather as though he was terrified the first and last thing she said would be ‘goodbye’ right before she died in infancy… Darcy was still terrified of that. It wasn’t saying goodbye that hurt, though, not for him. It was having to loose someone you were close to, someone you loved.
Without love, one can say goodbye and loose nothing at all.
But now? Darcy suddenly saw the whole point of having a child, every moment of it.
So, when she reached her arms up, Darcy tried not to hesitate in hugging her.
“Ty dolzhen menya zabrat.” She told him, the one Russia phrase she must’ve heard him say to Bill and understood so many times. 'You’re meant to pick me up.’
“Well, she’s got her Mama’s attitude and no mistake!” Bill laughed, almost earning Katherine’s around his bag again before she processed it properly. “Do you want anyone else to go with you?”
“Okay. Stay with your Otet now, okay?” Jack made her promise. No reply but a nod this time.
And then Asteria-Eos tugged Darcy’s sleeve and pulled him in the direction of the maize maze, the Reid waving a quick goodbye.
A goodbye that might not have been so bad after all.
Since this would have been the week I go to my local county fair, I drew some of my characters doing classic county fair activities.

Cartoon trash cans at a fair.
I found this on Facebook.
LipSense at the Fair!
LipSense is as American as the County and State Fairs! We as SeneGence Distributors LOVE the tradition of going to the Fair each year and sharing SeneGence! Due to COVID and the Stay at Home Mandate, unfortunately, we will NOT be able to have the fun and fellowship with County Fair and State Fair goers this year as the Fairs have all been canceled. This is just a short video to remind ourselves and you all that we love it and will be back!
