THE OTHER FAIR



We went to the Oregon State Fair last Friday to see Willie. (I had no idea he was so little.) The performance was great. Such a pure voice. He sounded exactly like the recordings. Some lucky person in the front row caught the red bandanna Willie took off his head and flung into the crowd. What a souvenir.



We didn't really time it right to see the animals and prize-winning pies. Bummer.

But the aerial tram was rolling overhead and the lights from the amusement rides looked great once the sun set.



I could have done without the "blooming onion". It got set under the folks sitting in front of us before the concert even started. Fair food. Not always the best memories.
