|Long Creek Herbs booth at the Fair|
I love fairs, especially state fairs. I've been going to the Missouri State Fair nearly every year since I was 3 years old. This year, because we signed up with AgriMissouri, we were offered a one day booth in the Agriculture building. What a great way to see the Fair! And the AgriMissouri folks were wonderful to work with.
AgriMissouri, a part of the Dept of Ag, is there to promote farm products and to assist growers and producers. They stocked a wide variety of MO-made products, including our Herbal Nail Fungus Soak
, my books
, Doggie Cookie and Cat Cookie Kits
, etc. The photo, above, was one of the few times the AgriMissouri store wasn't packed with shoppers!
One of the great things at the Fair this year was Rock-it robot. He talks to kids, shakes hands, walks and dances. He dances really, really well! I overheard a couple of ladies say, "that's the best butt I've ever seen on a robot!" Here's what they saw, below. (Do a Google search for rock-itrobot to see more; his painted "skin" turns colors due to a special Chromilusion paint).

|The Highway Gardens are always a place to relax, nap, picnic.|
Some things at the Fair don't change. Like teens who take their girlfriend to the Fair. I remember taking Sharon one year, and Mary Ann another.
|Young couples, young families, it's a fun place to go.|
|Fair food. This one sounds really bad. I wasn't tempted.|

I've been drinking at this Highway Garden drinking fountain for more than 60 years. I'll probably still be doing that, when I'm the age of these folks, below.
|Never too old for the Fair.|
