What Brings You Here, Potter?

The 2nd Annual Harry Potter Festival in Edgerton does.  I was amused enough on Friday to return on Sunday. The weather was gor jus.
Note: I'm easily amused.
Another Note: Still too cheap to buy a map.

    1. I agree and some sweet pups and excellent adult costumes too. There were Defense Against The Dark Arts classes so I bet they did, Marja.

  3. Well, I must admit that all this Harry Potter stuff has never hit my radar screen. Great shot here, Jeanna! Let's start a gofundme for your water pump and a few maps. Thanks for stopping by, I hope that you find your way back again.

    1. Read the first one to my nephew when he was sick and we got caught up in them. Another mechanic said I didn't need the water pump or idle pulleys but should get new tires. I did, don't like them and last Monday I got stuck in the mud like a rat in a trap. Still paying the price for that one.

    1. They had things like Quidditch matches and zip line broom lessons I missed out on. Or shall I say missed out on taking photos of.

    1. The Patronus Pond was quite enjoyable in the gorgeous weather and Diagon Alley was interesting enough when it was chillier.I didn't venture inside anywhere although I was curious about their butter beer and pub crawl.

  20. I see your bad hombre.... But where is your nasty woman? If I were there, (and I wish I had been) she would have been behind my
    camera )). Politics aside, I absolutely love everything about this post. And honestly laughed out loud at the nursing witchmom...great picture all by itself and your caption makes it national publication-worthy! You should own the Internet!

    1. Why in the Bellatrix Lestrange vid of course. Ha, I'm finally responding on Election Day or shall we say possibly the last day when anything made sense. I decided to be just a tit I mean tad classier than usually and not make the obvious joke about it being colder than a blank's blank. And it wasn't that cold. National publication worthy well feel free my friend. Ha, I'll settle for owning a working automobile you flatterer!
