A devil’s bargain at the buffet

There is no way I am taking a dozen rugrats to the buffet, I don’t care if I can feed them for ten bucks.

It’s D-day for the 4H kids

We went to the Evergreen State Fair in Monroe on Friday. If you have ever been to the fair, well there you are. Nothing is really different.

As expected, everything was overpriced. (Nine bucks for an elephant ear!! Are they using real elephants??)

We did enjoy visiting the critters and the various judged exhibits. I got a BLT from the everything bacon joint but got my Pepsi elsewhere, because I don’t care for bacon-flavored soda. Fortunately, it was not anywhere near the swine exhibits; and the wind wasn’t blowing that way.

For me, the highlight was the corn on the cob. I wonder if they have some secret farm mom recipe for preparing it? I was tempted to have two!

It was a pleasant day, and we got a great deal on an 8 person Jacuzzi spa. Tall cowboy guy tipped me off.

Retired Gator

We saw this alligator at the Reptile Zoo up in Gold Bar, and you can tell by the look on his snout, he is retired. I don’t know if he gets a pension though, or just eats pensioners.
