Memories.... Popcorn, waffles, grease, sausage with onions
and green peppers.
fries, old and new coffee, cotton candy, candy apple horror
kids, animals, sweat, and too much perfume
paint thinner, turpentine, gasoline, oil, canvas new, canvas
wet, canvas musty. Dust, mud, and iron
meat, fried meat and burned meat. The smell of money ,cash
concert for the nose, always present... Organ music, the
Calliope. The Jenny, Clatter of the roller coaster, the roar
of the motor-drome, shouts of the talkers, screams of the
riders, and the chant of the grinders.
Rock'n Roll. Growls, whinnies, barks and chatter of the
animals, flap of the canvas, the first and last sounds of
voices of friends, seen on this lot, missed on the next,
seen again. Crackle of cooking, the voices of townies, and a
thousand local sounds..
