We did get out to the Fair today. It was a lovely day, sunny and maybe it got up to 75 degrees. Both Bob and I left with jackets on and within 30 minutes were shedding them because it was warm enough without them. We took the bus, just a dollar for the round trip with our pre-purchased Fair tickets. There are several places in the area where you can catch it and it takes you straight to the Fair grounds and then when you're ready to go home, you just go out and get on the appropiate bus and go back to where your car is parked. I noticed parking within a block or so of the Fair grounds was up to $15 this year. YIKES !! The cheapest parking we saw was $8 and that was like 5 blocks from the gate. That's why I prefer the bus. We got there a little after 10am and caught the 7:45pm bus back to where my car was parked. So for a couple of old people we had a full day. I actually won a free admission ticket today in a contest so I will no doubt go again before it ends Sept 24th......and since Bob is planning on leaving the country this next week, I'll either go alone or find a gal friend to go with me. I don't mind going alone...so that's what I may do. Anyway, enjoy the pictures, most of them speak for themselves. There are a lot of commercial exhibits there, but there is still the old fashioned country flavor with the 4-H and Grange displays and entries. And I wouldn't miss it..........Linda
P.S. after I posted this entry, my daughter left a comment that my grand daughter was the only girl who entered a model in her catagory, so her 1st place was a win over all the boys who entered in her age group. WAY TO GO SWEET LITTLE GRAND DAUGHTER OF MINE !!
