Well, I was going to give you adventure pictures,

but I am having problems with Blogger uploading them. So we are all just going to have to wait until tomorrow. Well, unless the two of us get back from Tuesday's travels really late, and then it might be postponed again. Our last planned adventure is for Friday, when the girl-not-so-much-anymore-children, Mr. A, and I all go to the The Great Minnesota Get-Together. I am not sure what all we will do there, besides the mandatory stop at the corner of Judson & Nelson, find out the what the latest "on-a-stick" item is, eat food and cotton candy (according to Mr. A), and do lots of looking and walking. Rumor has it that one of the new food items is going to be chocolate covered bacon. Sounds like an "ick" to me. But I don't like deep-fried Twinkies, Snickers, or Reese's Peanut Butter Cups on-(or off)-a-stick either. Somethings should just never be battered and deep-fried in my opinion. Cheese-curds do not fall into that category, by the way.
For lots more fun and food info you may check it out here; the Gopher in the upper right hand corner will happily lead you to the food. I really would like to figure out a way to go to this event next week. DTY also wishes she could go, but she will be far away by then.

I love, love, love the State Fair.

Ever had the walleye cakes or salmon on a stick?

Also, you might have to check out the creative activities competition for me if they don't post online promptly!

Kathy and I had deep fried (battered) artichoke hearts. I could feel my arteries congealing as I ate them, but went back for more nonetheless. Well worth shortening one's life for.

Deep fried Twinkies not so much. I'm very fond of Twinkies, but see no point in deep frying them. Likewise with The Del Mar Fair's specialty this year of deep fried Spam. Fried Spam certainly, but battered? I think not.

I had deep fried twinkies and what-are-those-cupcake-things? Just to try, I can do without them. The artichoke hearts sounds interesting, as does the spam. Spam needs something anyway.
