it's fair week!

If you come and visit us this week and can't find a parking spot out front it's because it's fair week. Just park in the back. (ha! we don't get visitors)

My mom always said that some people come back to Lancaster every year for the fair.  Why? I have no idea.

But that doesn't mean we won't be going everyday. Monkey likes the animals.

Wanna know a little secret?

If you say you're an exhibitor and pay $20 you get a fair pass for every day.  Yeah, yeah, people do that, you say.  That's not the secret.  The secret is that they let you in regardless of wether or not you entered anything and it's $5 cheaper than the fair pass.

Take that Fairfield County Fair that didn't award my mom any ribbons for her really cool quilts.

Based on the winners in past years I'm guess they weren't old school enough.  Or maybe they don't like quilts that have a built in bed skirt with a hidden pea underneath.

I bet it would've won in Franklin County.

I don't feel so bad about skirting the system after that.

Rant over.

Like I said, we'll be trying to get to the fair everyday because as you read above, I have tickets; the kids get in free; Monkey loves animals; the Clydesdales are back; and Sponagle's Bob Evans sausage sandwiches.

Seriously, the sandwiches are on point.
