We spent yesterday at the Wisconsin State Fair, the first time we have been there in quite a while. The weather was not too hot, and no rain, so a very nice day. We did spend a fair amount of time munching on the various edibles, but did not spend all of our time doing that. I think that my wife liked the bunny hopping the most, as some of the little bunnies were quite funny. One of them successfully jumped all of the hurdles, but also spent a fair amount of time carefully sniffing them first, so I am not sure how it did. They had a couple of hatching tanks for quail, and that was a big success with the kids.

We visited the draft horses hall, which was not fully open, but got a good look at some massive Belgians. I kept thinking that they were probably good for 2 or 3 horsepower apiece. When we got to the sheep hall, the sheep were in the process of being groomed for showing, and they were not at all happy with this. Totally shearing them again meant that once sheared, they had to put blankets on them so as not to get them chilled. I had mixed feelings about this. I could understand why it was done, but I am not sure that I would have done it if I were an owner. My wife was not at all pleased with how the sheep were being treated. The low spot of the day.

We did find the booth with the Pasties, and split one. I think that I could have eaten several, as it has been a long time since I have had one. Turns out that the company that makes them sells through Woodmans, so I am going to have to pay the local store a visit, and soon. We also split an excellent turkey and cheddar toasted cheese sandwich, and of course had our cookie dough on a stick fix. I did find the Exotic Meats booth, but my wife was not impressed. Oddly enough, we have had a fair number of what they viewed as "exotic meats", but not the locusts or worms. My wife initially thought about the Spring Roll on a Stick, until I pointed out that one of the ingredients was "Python". I assume that came from Florida. That would make a good food booth at a star port though. Edit Note: No sign of any plant-based imitation meat products.

We did see a fair number of MAGA hats, with no one attacking the wearers. There were also a fair number of what I would call conservative tee-shirts in evidence, both being worn and sold. Next years election should be interesting. Based on the shirts, helping the illegals out is not a popular stand to take.

We may or may not go back on Sunday, when military and veterans get in free with up to 4 other people. I will need to see if my daughter and her husband might want to join us. I did not find the peirogi booth until just as we were leaving. It has been a while since I have had one of those too.

Edit Note: It looks like my daughter and son-in-law had a good time at the State Fair today. They appear to have done a lot of munching, including a foot long corn dog for my son-in-law. I assume that he cleared that with his personal nurse (my daughter, his wife).
