Before last weekend, I’d NEVER been to a county fair, but there are good reasons for this.
1. I’m a city person who never lived–even remotely–near a farm.
2. I’m from Massachusetts where counties were all but abolished twenty years ago.

Inside the midway, caution gets thrown to the winds! 🙂

and look…there’s shadow-me and my shadow-friend Ralph inside the shot.
A good time was had by all!
