County fair season at least for me begins this evening, starting with Warren County. To be followed by Lincoln, St. Charles, Montgomery, Washington Town & Country (what Franklin County calls its fair), and I’ll even make a brief stop at Fair St. Louis. And then, of course, the State Fair.
I don’t have much fun at these things; county fairs and the State Fair are a great networking and gossipmongering and lobbying opportunity. The good news is that my entrance is comped.
Also the good news is that the furnace has turned off at just the right time.
