A Couple of things....
The weather, while not reaching the craziness of 105 or 118, warmed up again and experienced 90 degrees while walking through food booths children's rides, all the while, holding Sabby's hand and fending off her occasional whining with offers of cheese. While not awful, this kind of heat doesn't work with Multiple Sclerosis and yesterday was no exception for me...
$12.00 is too much to pay for parking. Because of this, I broke one of my "newer" rules and asked what age qualified me for the Senior Discount.. which happened to be 55. I got the senior discount....
I wasn't feeling well enough for a deep fried Twinkee but did take home a pork chop on a stick.. Wasn't worth the 6.00.
What WAS worth twice the $6.00 was a story Sabby told me in the car on the way home. A brief moment of background.... Like I said, the heat got to me and I got sick, like passing out sick, fatigue and weakness. I sat down inside near the animal exhibits. Sabby and Paul, camera in hand walked on to see more of the state fair.
Here's the conversation.. Sabby - You know Gran we saw a REAL big cow and he was laying down and then he stood up but it took him a minute to get up.. and THEN he took a poop.
Gran - Wwhhat?
Pappy's - rude sound effects.
There you have it.
Sabby and "the real big cow"
Sabby and Pappys checking out the sights, sounds and rides at the State Fair.
Gran was pretty wobbly by this time and sitting on the carousal in the shade was a welcome relief.
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog today.
P.S. This is THE FIRST time either Paul or I have been to a State Fair. :)
