The big wrap-up of the state fair.
It turns out that Bettie is a chef
And I’m a horse person
I wanted us to ride the slide.
It was a long walk up
We started off even, but I edged ahead
and built up a big lead at the mid-point (I think it’s experience born in the North Country)
We ended up together
and headed to the big Ferris Wheel
We were with our friends Darrell, Carolyn, and Cara (the opera singer)
We got up pretty high. The slide is the yellow diagonal in the center of the pic
That’s Columbus behind the beautiful lady
21 cars on the whole thing.
To let you know that we got our fruits and vegetables:
A fun, long day. We figured it had been almost thirty years since we had been to the state fair. I don’t know that we’ll go every year, but wow – what a fun place. It won’t be another thirty years until the next time.
