Fair — 8 Comments

  1. We stopped at the booths of Amy Klobuchar, Al Franken, and the Demo­c­rat Farm Labor Par­ty. Nei­ther Amy, Al, Bernie, nor Hillary was in atten­dance. We would have vis­it­ed booths for Repub­li­can can­di­dates but didn't see any.

  2. I've nev­er had the beer on a stick… do the cups not come out? I guess a per­son could use a straw, but that'd be a lit­tle weird.

    Glad you had fun at the Fair! My favorite part this year was see­ing my 12-year-old com­plete­ly enchant­ed at the birth of a lamb in the Mir­a­cle of Birth barn.

  3. Yes, the cups come out; it's just a wide stick with holes. With full cups, it's heavy to hold by the han­dle alone; the coop­er­a­tive fair­go­er who agreed to be pho­tographed looked pret­ty strong. You real­ly need a small crowd with you to drink it properly.

    You're right, a straw would be… odd.

  4. Oh excel­lent, Thanks Jim! More an appre­ci­a­tor than a prac­ti­tion­er, at least so far, but we’ll see what the muse has to say.

  5. Well, gee. Where ya been? Is your LDL so high that you can't think? All that fair food don­cha know… or has life here become mun­dane a nd bor­ing com­pared to life on the east coast?

  6. Hi Lin­da, there has been a bit of a hia­tus, hasn't there? A bunch of life has intrud­ed. I expect to be back to post­ing lat­er this week.

    Mean­while, on the piz­za front: we had out-of-town guests from back East last week (one of the intrud­ing bits, see above) and took them to Luce. They were insis­tent on sam­pling the square cut. This time I was not so very tak­en by Luce's piz­za. On the upside, we had ear­li­er tried the ur-Punch in High­land and found the sim­u­la­tion of the Neapoli­tan piz­za expe­ri­ence quite compelling.

  7. Well, that is good. I have 3 broth­ers, and one lives in Syra­cuse. He vis­it­ed last week to spend time with Mom and Dad. We had fun dis­cussing your blog and the nuances of life here and out east. I think my favorite is the tor­na­do sirens… and of course "Well that's kin­da dif­fer­ent." We are so the epit­o­me of passive/​aggressive! Dri­ves me nuts.
