Iowa State Fair
Instead of walking my usual route today, I decided to go to the fair and walk around. This is the first time I've been to the fair in probably ten years. Of course I had to go see the Butter Cow first thing. You can't go to the Iowa State Fair without seeing the Butter Cow, and this year there is a Butter Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs too.
Going to the fair is a pretty cheap proposition for me. I don't ride the rides, I don't drink the beer, and I'm following a diet plan that means I can't eat the food. I even parked about 5 blocks away so I didn't have to pay to park. I am not paying $10 to park my car.
I do like people watching, and I like to walk around in the barns, and checked out the displays.
And of course, there was lots of corn.
