The State Fair Starts Tomorrow

OK, why all of this excitement about the State Fair? The Minnesota State Fair is the second largest state fair in the nation (superceded by Texas, of course) and it takes place so close to my home that I have corn dogs in my bloodstream. When I first moved up to Minnesota, the small house we moved into was one half block from the main entrance of the Fairgrounds. We lived there for eight years before moving to the suburbs, but we still own the house and I still consider myself a resident of St Paul and a fair-a-holic. There is so much to see and do, food to eat, acts to see, animals to pet, people to watch. I never tire of it.
