Ya Gotta Love the Fair
Well, as is tradition, we went to the Gwinnett County Fair. And, as usual, it was the same as it has been for the last 100 years. Second rate rides that I would be very apprehensive to put one of my family members on. Cotton candy, candy apples, and, of course, funnel cakes. Personally, I only go for the roasted corn. It is worth the trip, the admission fee, and all the other stuff just to be able to eat that yummy, salty, dripping with butter sensation that leaves your face and hands sooty from the burnt corn husks and left over charcoal. It is one of God's finest creations. But anyway, back to the fair. I LOVE the exhibits. The canned food, the jellies, the quilts, the knitted items, and they really do still show and award ribbons for livestock. It is amazing how many people still come and bring their prized goat, cow, horse and all the other things. Beany liked it, he was amazed at the rides and his Poppy won a Polar Bear for him. A great time was had by all!
