A Random Wednesday Conversation Starter

We'll be attending our local county fair this weekend, but I'm shocked -- shocked! -- to learn that there are people in this world who don't like county fairs! This seems really odd to me. So: County fairs, yay or nay?

I went to ours last year, but probably won''t this weekend. Like to go every three or four years.

I haven't been to my county fair in years -- it's largely devolved into a midway comprised of "information" booths (i.e., people trying to sell water softeners and snake oil) and military recruiters, and the entertainment rarely appeals to me. There aren't even many animals on display anymore. The whole thing is rather sad.

That said, I still enjoy my state fair, which remains truer to its roots...

One of lifes joys: watching the kid and his sheep win first place then explaining to your kid that this will be the last time they see each other as the animal is headed to slaughter.
