My State Fair

I love to visit the Minnesota State Fair! Today, I escaped the computer, the phone, the dishwasher and laundry. Spending a beautiful sunny summer day at the fair. I almost saw a baby cow being born - yew, retuned later to see the cute calf, skipped on the slimey uncomfortable part. I touched the ear of a pig only hours old - very soft. I saw great crop art - my favorite was of Lucille Ball - a blue ribbon. I saw quilts and afaghans, drawings and paintings by children k-8th grade.

The highlight of course, the Burnsville High

School Marching band bringing todays parade to a close. Especially the cymbal line!

It's fulfilling, entertaining
it's true culture you'll be gaining
accept no imitations,

it's the FAIR!
