There's a sucker born every minute :) Sucker fish and back yard carnivals

Yep  P.T. Barnum certainly knew a thing or two about suckers
One of his quotes that I like in particular is 
"Men who drive sharp bargains with their customers, acting as if they never expected to see them again, will not be mistaken. They will never see them again as customers. People don’t like to pay and get kicked also."
Yes he was quite the showman and knew how to run a growing business.
He wanted to keep people coming back and to be excited by what they might find.
Some businesses certainly do not follow this way of thinking LOL!
We had a little carnival/camp out of our own in the back yard last weekend. The girls had lots of fun and gamma was sweating buckets but laughing the whole time :)
They really enjoyed the little make-shift fishing game....we simply tied a clothes pin on the end of one of our old  fishing poles ....and they were reeling them in.
Here was our version of "Sucker Fish"

Soon the carnival barkers were suited up in mustaches.....
And finally our little mermaids were cooling off in the hot tub 
Yep...keep your eye out for suckers....sometimes some of them make for good eatin's .
Hope ya'll are having a great weekend!
