We spent many hours at the fair yesterday. Some 120,000 people visit the fair every day. I like that setting- big crowd, barbecue smoke filling the area, smelly armpits, shuttle rides, sky rides, "other" rides I don't ever take (e.g. extreme swing), shops in tents, ice cream, sugar candy, cinnamon roles, humangoes turkey leg, petting sheep and piglets, watching a cow giving birth and miles of walking under the sun- I mean under my umbrella. Can you believe it? I was the only who used an umbrella yesterday- one in 120,000 people! That's something! Really!
