When it comes to the State Fair I have always been a little indifferent. However, when a friend suggested we go this year I thought," why not?" I am glad I did because we had a great time.
Because, really, how bad of a time can you have eating fried dough covered in powdered sugar on a 65 degree day with bright Carolina blue skies?
And with the exception of the 3.5 minutes I spent on a hideous ride called The Orbiter, it was a nice way to spend a couple of hours NOT thinking about the 20 years worth of savings that went "poof" in a matter of days.
Plus, it was a great excuse to whip out the new camera :)
