We had the day all planned, and we were going to the fair early. We had not been in a few years, and we were looking forward to seeing all the crafts and animals and food. No chickens at the fair this year, as they are worried about the chicken flu.
So we left by ten, and we went to breakfast at our favorite local diner. We got to the fair grounds, which are on the other side of the airport, by eleven. Opps…..it did not open until 3PM during the week. I looked it up, and I swear it said ten, but those were the weekend hours. Hmmm, what should we do? We decided to go to the movies to pass the time. Drove to the theater only to find that there was nothing really showing until after one, and it was only 11:30 by then. We hung out at Barnes and Nobles for a while, and then headed over to the new outlet mall. We shopped and got a few things. Then at two we remembered we had to pick Ann’s car up at the shop by five…which was all the way back near the house. So we drove back, got her car, parked it in at the grocery store, and drove to the fair grounds. We arrived just after three.
No gangs allowed. Never realized it was an issue, actually.
We ate right away…..
I had funnel cake, and Ann had a hot dog. I love funnel cake, and they had all kinds. They had pumpkin, red velvet, and regular. Toppings included chocolate or fruit or ice cream. I like them with just powdered sugar.
They have everyone covered.
Ann is waiting in line at this stand, but you have to look through the window to see her.
There was a lot of food, but we really did not eat that much. We really just walked around and looked at everything.
We looked at the animals, but they do not let you pet them, and that just kills me. I know they do not want disease spread from animal to animal, but they could make an exception for me.
I have always wanted a goat. These are little, and they would not take up that much room in the house.
Ok, a Brahman bull ( pronounced Brahma) would be a bit big for Possum Manor.
Bad hair day for some.
Then we headed to the midway.
Can you see us here?
How about here?
And finally here?
Of course you did not see us in any of those photo, because we are not insane! We kept our feet firmly planted on the ground.
We had a great time.
