DH and I went to the state fair today. I always enjoy the chickens and the bunnies, the women's building, and the vendors selling choppers in hoppers and Sham-wows, but things were really sparse this year. I heard there was a major foul-up in the management, and people weren't able to get their entries processed. Hope they straighten things out by next year. I wanted to put things in this year and never heard from the management.
But we enjoyed what was there. Here's a picture of an over-achiever in the chicken barn. Just had to show what great layer she is!
I got four new pearls. One black, one silver and two pink. The lady who sold us the oysters told me that I was one of her favorite customers every year because I was so enthusiastic. Aww, shucks.
We strolled past the rides and activities and I went for the human hamster balls. No one else was playing when we showed up, but after I spent ten minutes falling down and laughing my ass off, the kids were lining up for a chance to try. I never did manage to stand up, but OMG it was fun trying!
You don't quit playing when you get old. You get old when you quit playing.
Of course every year they come up with a new deep-fried delight. Would you believe deep-fried Doctor Pepper?
