The Fair is over.
The fair is over and I am thankful for that! It was an interesting time, I had fun with the people I worked with and with some of the folks who attended, but whoa, it was a crazy time! Some say it's the cause of all the problems in the state but ... I like it? For the most part I do, there are so many things that could happen and so much excitement! In fact, if you stare for a while and listen to all thats going on around you, the smells and movement, it may be the closest I've gotten to chaos. Especially with "Weird Al" Yankovic singing (and yes it's actually him in the flesh) in the background. Towards the end of the fair I began taking my lunch breaks in different animal buildings. I had some really interesting conversations with a farmer who owns 89 head of cattle, about half are dairy and the other are beef cattle. I continued my tour of the cow building to see a girl feeding one of her cows, it was sweet. The day before I walked around the dairy goat building and took a little video of the scene. So, I learned a lot at the fair, about people and animals and that my feet don't like me after thousands of hours standing on concrete.
