Uuuuuck! Zook dragged me to the Washington County fair on the hottest day of the summer. It was shear misery and I vowed never to go again. And I mean it.

A cow pooped about 18 inches in front of my face, and then a very large pig made the most horredous noises I have ever heard for no apparent reason as I walked by. HE wasn't the one being forced to view hundreds of mediocre and wilting 4H projects.

Have fun! :)
Have I told you how happy I am that you're blogging???

It wasn't that bad. I guess I will just have to go by myself next year. It reminds me of what people who ain't city slickers do for fun. Maybe that is what turned me into a borderline carnie. OK, it was a little hot.

NOT attending. I will not be attending the fair this year nor any other.

Zookeenee, it is fun to be friends with such an intriguing and complex character as yourself. I wouldn't have taken you for a carnie. In fact, I just recently learned what that meant. But it makes you all the more amazing that you may be one.

Thanks for the words of encouragement. I feel a little exposed here on the worldwide web.

Will you be seeing Beck, at least? I am so mad that I won't. Giving birth really gets in the way of concert attendance.

I'll have to go with Zookeenee--and get some of that fried too.

Mmmm. Fried Zookeenee!
