Riding around at the county fair
I can't do the fair without a hot dog, a Coke, and a squirt of yellow mustard.
by Kirk House
I'm always thrilled to get through that gate in the snow fence into the world of the county fair. Stepping around kids, over manure, and past melting ice cream, I visit every stall in every barn.
Having no sense of smell
may fuel my enthusiasm, but I savor every sheep, goat, rabbit, horse and swine.
If I can manage it without too many odd looks, I visit the petting zoo. Too bad
my kids are so old now!
