County fair!

Our county fair was a couple weekends ago. Perfect weather, hot but not ungodly so, low humidity, no rain (except when we were setting up, but we were inside the 20’x20′ tent so the rain didn’t bother much). I worked the 10am – noon shift every day. Many years at the fair have taught me that early in the day is rather less warm than later, and I do NOT like heat.


This guy was walking around one day. One could buy on a feather from those in the cup for $3. (I passed.) 



What a gorgeous bird!



Birds everywhere!



One of the mainstays of the fair, a food stand that everyone goes to, if not for lunch, then for their pie.



Their pies are legendary. Well, legendary among fairgoers in Polk County, WI.



French silk. It was not dissimilar to a semisoft Hershey bar topped with real whipped cream.
