Some end 8-11 and fair 9-2-11 008Welcome to the New York State Fair. We take for granted that we are blessed to have this fair in our town! 10 days of good old time fair days. People come from everywhere to spend a day, a couple days or the whole ten days there.

There are various proud moments for many at the fair, all the local TV and radio stations have booths where they broadcast from , free talent and pay for concerts, races, animal shows, Indian Village, horticulture, International foods, fresh cold milk, people…. thousands of people….Some end 8-11 and fair 9-2-11 011 young, old, and in-between. The James Strait Midway, games to test your skill at basket ball—( when the backboard is angled a little funny and it looks like the hoops are smaller than normal….) or tossing for a goldfish, fried dough , ( yuck.. fried twinkies and pickles…) fresh squeezed lemonade, inventions, 4 H club competitions, Horse shows, animal contests…. a sea lion that will give you a smooch, it is nice to go, it is where you get the sausage green pepper and onion sandwich!!!

It was not a terrible evening to go. The crowds were not so bad that we could not find a place to sit for a bit. It feels good to have gone, yet better to know we have going in the rear view mirror now, instead of splattered on the windshield as we navigate the road of “to-dos”.

So we have our weekend revamped of sorts. We were going to go camping, but Indi has been having seizures in the early morning hrs, and the camper on a holiday weekend, in a full campsite … well that is not a great idea.  So weeding the garden, doing house stuff, the fair, and other unplanned things will fill the 3 days. off. Peace to all, cherish every moment. Love to all, Mrs Justa alias Cindy
