Summit County Fair
For the second year, Barbara has, with mouse in hand, won Best of Show in the junior pet parade at the county fair. Last year, the prize-winning giant mouse (aka chinchilla) was Bella. Bella is of a nervous disposition - yes, they have distinct personalities - and does not do well with people in general. Including us. This year, we wisely decided to take Betty. Betty goes to the Stow-Munroe Falls Library pet show every July and does rather well, and has been at the fair, too. Fortunately, we had beautiful weather - nice breeze, a bit sunny, and the rain held off for us. Photos abound. Total winnings: two trophies and three ribbons. Fair food is excellent - swiss cheese on a stick, fried vegetables, gyros, and lemonade - and that was just for me! I'm headed for the treadmill, with an extra fifteen minutes for good measure. The ferris wheel almost made me lose my expensive lunch helpings - I wish it had. God only knows the calories involved in today's outing.
