My Fair Lady

I always say that I hate Fairs. I hate the high prices, the crowds, and the rigged games. Oh, and Carnies. I can't stand Carnies. They don't have teeth. It's like they can't go to the dentist because they are always traveling.

Yet Saturday, after work, Diana and I went to the State Fair of Texas. We searched out Big Tex, rode the Giant Ferris Wheel, and ate. That's right, we ate. I had a Corny Dog, some of Diana's Nachos, a Hot Dog, Funnel Cake, and Tornado Taters. Oh, and a Corn on the Cob. We also rode this tiny roller coaster that was more like something at Joyland.

They had a world famous Playing Card stacker that was building the Dallas Skyline out of cards in a glass room. You could watch him stack the cards and it was amazing. We also went on a tour of the Women's Museum and saw a History of Marilyn Monroe Exhibit. Keep in mind that this was after we had walked in the 5K that morning. My feet were killing me.

And that's not all,

I was wondering if you were going to go to that. My aunt goes every year and loves it, I might go with her and my cousin next year. And congrats on doing the 5k walk.

Did you have a Carney take that photo of you and Diana? If so, you might want to wash it with alcohol... you don't know where his hands have been....

No, the nice couple that sat across from us in the ferris wheel took it, silly! We are riding on the ride. I told Trinity it made me feel old because we had a very good conversation with the couple without feeling even a bit uncomfortable.
