so, I took a half-day and we did the fair yesterday. I’m still kinda tired, so this won’t be very verbose (like any of my entries are these days)

- only negative: no fireworks, supposedly because of windy conditions. Safety Schmafety, dagnabbit, gimme some explosions!

- rides were pretty fun – Jess actually rode the Top Spin with me and Gary – I was mighty impressed, she did great :) I can’t remember the names of the others, but it was good :)

- saw the Wild West show – semi-entertaining
– saw the 9pm bike stunt show – they shouldn’t have bothered, it was far too cold and windy, lots of screw-ups, as expected
