i don't really get stoked on the fair. a bunch of 4-h groups with their horses, pigs and other animals doesn't really strike excitement into my soul. wandering around the different booths of water softners, carpet cleaners, spa sellers, and other "hobbies" doesn't really do it for me either. what i do like are the photography contests. i've been thinking and toying with the idea of submitting one, or a few. maybe a black and white and a full color.
i also look forward to the elephant ears and huckleberry ice cream though. and of course, the demolition derby. we haven't had a good one for a couple of years or so, but hopefully, we will get lucky enough this time. . .
