Doc and I get to work just as the sun is coming up. This morning as we got out of the car I heard some roosters crowing off in the distance. My ears perked up and my tail started wagging with glee as that can only mean one thing, the state fair has started! The building we work in is across the street from the chicken barn and for the next eleven days we will take in all the sounds and the smells.
One of my favorite things about the fair is watching the humans. The fashions are always worth the trip. I saw a couple walking together and the wife had on a tee-shirt that said “I’m with stupid.” There was an arrow pointing to her husband. Long live wedded bliss.
The other great thing about the fair is the food. Fried lemonade, deep-fried Oreos, doughnut burgers, fried snickers and fried cheese. Only human’s will take something that is already bad for you and then fry it. I head some people interviewed on TV and they said they wanted to eat their way across the fair. I guess it’s always good to have goals.
You can also meet some celebrities. Last year I met one of the last surviving munchkins from the Wizard of Oz. The announcer said that he had left his comfortable home in Beverly Hills to come and meet all of us. Well, I though that was mighty nice of him. It was about 90 degrees in the blazing sun that day and he was sitting on the stage with a snake wrapped around his neck. He looked like he was half asleep. Maybe he was worn out from being out all night with Gorilla Girl.
Here’s hoping you get a chance to go to one of your state fairs this summer. I know Doc and I will be going. You just never know what will happen or who you will meet and I don’t want to miss a thing.
