LOVING Fair food isn't a crime!


Mixing business with pleasure is always easy for me at the Fair. I LOVE the Fair. This time of year reminds me of my birthday (which is Friday, September 3rd, hint-hint Daddy-O). I needed to deliver more wall hung Ravens to the Bad Girls of the North fair booth today and agreed to meet 3 girlfriends at the Fair just as it opened for an afternoon of chick Fair fun. Another treat was Bad Girl Vicki had a FREE ticket waiting for me at the gate. My friends and I
all agreed to eat our way through the Fair along the Green, Purple, Red and Yellow trails after reading an article by Julia O'Malley on the good and the bad of the Fair food. Hands down all of us agreed that the deep fried cheese curds ROCK and we'd have been in big trouble if we had them with our beer in the Sluice Box! The sun was shining, we'd been shopping, laughing, dreaming of raising chickens, mini-goats and the curds were hot and the beer was cold...

Wow! You really did eat your way through the fair!

I was hoping you would come back by the booth so we could make you guess which items of yours we sold that day ;-)

I've been wanting to get out there but it seems like its been raining every day. Guess I'll just have to bite the bullet and go rain or shine.

I read that article by Julia O'Malley and decided I really don't want to know how fattening it all is. If I only eat it once a year, I figure it's OK.

Great times! I still do the PR/media work for our regional fair and it's coming up at the end of the month. I spend all 12 days on site, so you can bet I have had my share (and more) of cinnabuns and curly fries.
