meet me at the fairWell, not THAT fair. The Oklahoma State Fair--a mere ten minutes from the casa. Strangely, it has an arch, which seems to be a smaller replica of our beloved Arch (also known as the monument to the people that left St. Louis).
For various reasons this was our one chance to catch the Fair this year, so we did a big sweep, but we caught a round of duck racing action (Nasduck?)as well as some trick roping, some competitive sawing, and hatching chickens. We ate our Wonder Bars from the Oklahoma Hospitality Club, right inside the Expo, and, to balance the yin/yang of the evening, strolled through both the auto show and the quilting/knitting/crocheting/cooking displays (one of those deals that preserves marriages).
