If you ever start feeling like you have the goofiest, craziest, most dysfunctional family in the world, all you have to do is go to a state fair. Because five minutes at the fair, you’ll be going, ‘you know, we’re alright. We are dang near royalty’.—Jeff Foxworthy
I don’t know what it is about a state fair that brings out all the unreal weirdos, but it sure makes for some first-class people watching. We wondered if it was Look Like a Loony Day and we missed the memo. I’d show you some samples but there were too many and, frankly, I was afraid to be caught taking their pictures.
Our group love to see the farm animals so we proceeded directly to the barns. Grandson, JD, was kind enough to oblige when I asked him to pose with the poultry.
Having grown up on a dairy farm I always have to check out the big Holsteins.
JD kinda liked the little white pony.
But he wasn’t so sure about the BIG ponies.
After cruising through some of the displays, we progressed on to the Fair Food.
Deep fried is okay, but this might be taking it to extremes.
JD wanted something cold and green.
This was the perfect solution.
Cold and green sounded good to me, too. I went for my favorite, Fresh Lime Freeze.
Now that’s what I’m talking about!
One of the top sellers at our fair is the Tiger Ears sold to raise money for the Boy Scouts.
JD’s mom needed help with this one. I was glad to assist.
DH returned with a Smoked Turkey Leg.
It was still sizzling so it was consume with caution.
The weather was muggy hot, and mom and dad and grandma and grandpa were tired, so we didn’t tell JD about what else could be done at a state fair. He’ll get plenty of chances to pay money to spin until he barfs in the coming years.
