Or at least one day of it.
We went to the Great Geauga County Fair, which is the oldest continuously running county fair in Ohio. The fair is an annual tradition for us. We've gone to other county fairs around us, but the Geauga Fair is the best.
Because there are crafts.
Things you can't get elsewhere like
elderberry pie made by real elders (in this case the Hambden Grange).
Of course the political parties have their booths.
And, of course, those with an agenda like the young earth creationists.
Sleeping cat is also unamused by my humor
There are also the genuine real petunias.
I should explain that this is a five foot tall petunia.
And because it's the Geauga County Fair we also have our genuine Amish Girls
They're waiting for the Amish Races to begin (no, I'm serious). Much squealing was to be heard as the Amish ponies went thundering by. And because we're talking about the Amish, a lot of people really don't believe me when I tell them things about the Amish. Like their use of cell phones. All the girls had at least one. No, really. Embiggen that photo and look at the girl on the far right. Still don't believe me? Okay.
Yeah, that's a digital camera she has. And she was using, not as a still camera, but to make a video of the race.
Okay, yes, sleeping cat is still not impressed.
Then yesterday was Mom's for grilling and conversation. It also included my first hands on experience with a Wii. The sister-in-law had just bought one with a Fit balance board and wanted to see how it goes all together. I fell in love. After doing the boxing game, the tennis game, and a few of the balance games I was feeling the sweat. So, I'm thinking of it as a way to get some weekly exercise. Lot of fun.
Today? Well today was a lazy day. Sleep in, didn't do much. Just getting back into the swing.
