Ears and Nose effect!

The fair was definitely bigger than last year, and whereas Maggie had been curious to go and check out all those interesting smells last time, last night she was not so keen.

The food vans were out in force:
burgers, hot dogs, pork rolls, candy floss, doughnuts, fish and chips, pizza,
they were all there, with prices varying by only a few pence.
The noise was phenomenal and there was coloured smoke everywhere from the multitude of rides and sideshows.

What was missing though, was the smell.

Fairgrounds always had that distinctive smell about them:
the tantalising aroma of sizzling burgers and onions,
the waft of freshly cooked chips or doughnuts,
and the sweet perfume of spun sugar and toffee apples.

I dunno.
Maybe because my poor ears were taking such a bashing, it crucified my sense of smell.
Come to think of it, maybe it was the same for Maggie, which is why she was keen to get home.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. How is Maggie? I know when my stomach is upset, I can’t tolerate the smells of cooking food.
