Of course we could not take the shuttle to the fair as my friend Lois recommended because that would be trusting the driving to someone else and turning over control of the process. Instead, we relied on our old favorite: driving around in search of a free, close parking space before surrendering and paying $5 to park on someone's lawn and walking half a mile to the gate, which, as SH pointed out, was $1 cheaper than taking the shuttle would have been.
I love capitalism and entrepreneurship. I am not going to pay $1 for a bottle of water, but someone will.
I also love the Holstein garbage cans.
And the guys sleeping under cows.
The chocolate-covered bacon on a stick was delicious. Absolutely delicious. I ate only one of the two for $3 that I got. SH tried a bite and didn't like it which was fine with me because I did not want to share.
More entrepreneurship and creativity: a beer opener on a hat. I love this country.
I really love this country.
I'm sure a grilled cheese would be delicious, but I don't go to the fair for food I can make at home. Instead, our first stop was for the fried macaroni and cheese on a stick. Then we had corn on the cob. I had the bacon. We finished with, of course, the cream puffs.
The kids' barn with the baby animals has the best displays.
Ah Senator Kohl. At least you do something for the people of Wisconsin. A glass of milk for 25 cents. I suppose that's better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. And you have never left any young women to drown in your car as far as we know. It could be a lot worse.
