The other night we went to the Georgia National Fair! (which by the way I'm going to go ahead and put out there that the fairgrounds are like 15 minutes away from our house!!). We went on opening weekend, so it appears that many of the animals hadn't arrived yet - or they were somewhere we couldn't find. Yes, we did look in the big barns that said "GOATS, SWINE, SHEEP" and "CATTLE" and "HORSES". We did, however, get to see a few:
|He might have been singing to the sheep...|
|the goats reminded us of Cali for some reason|
|Check out this cow's markings!!|
There were rides, but we didn't get on them because we had 2 missions to accomplish. Mission #1 - scarf down as much fair food as possible. Mission #2 - not be late for Tammy Barton's hypnosis show (which was absolutely interesting and just as funny). We had to get all of that done (mainly the eating) before the storm that was rolling in hit. Which it did roll in and hit. And we did get wet. At least come storm time, we were done eating our "entrees", Pablo and Norm were eating a cinnamon roll each the size of their own face.
It is amazing to me how the food trucks (and rides too) are beautifully tacky at the fair. If you look close and take it all in these structures are beyond tacky. There is no way on earth I would eat out of these things in any other context besides the fair.
|this must have been the vegetarian|
|they were intensely watching |
the guy with the sugar
|they were watching him|
And saving the best for last... a trip to the fair is worth nothing, it's a waste of money and time UNLESS...
UNLESS IT INVOLVES FUNNEL CAKE!!
Needless to mention we ate funnel cake. Because the polish sausages and onions, corn dogs, roasted corn, coke, and cinnamon buns the size of our faces wasn't enough food at 8:00pm.
