When I was visiting my mom mid-August, we talked about the State Fair – more than once. She wanted to know about all the things that I like to do, which is funny since Nonny would hate the State Fair. In fact, it would be a toss-up as to which of my parents would hate the State Fair the most. Probably my dad. I’m not sure where my genetic pre-disposition to loving the fair came from… certainly not from either Nonny or JB.
The food, the things for sale, the animal barns and the pet pavilion are easy to explain. Crop art was harder to explain and when I got around to the Butterheads, I was really at a loss. I’m not sure it ever made sense to Nonny. Truly when you think about it, how could it make sense to anyone who hasn’t seen it.
Dairy Princess and her court having their heads carved into huge chunks of butter over the course of the fair? Sounds clear enough, typed out like this, but it wasn’t that easy to explain to my mother. I did send her the above photo a few days ago but she hasn’t responded yet. She’s probably still shaking her head over how I “turned out” after she so carefully raised me!
What’s the latest mystery you’ve read?
