We had fun at the Great State Fair of Texas!

Here's some of what we saw on Wednesday. (No, I didn't take these pictures--they are representative, though. I just hate to wag a camera around the fair!)


Big Tex


The Texas Star Ferris Wheel
(No, I didn't ride it!)


The cows they were judging in the livestock barns


The Cardstacker

This guy is building the skyline of Dallas out of playing cards!


Maybe the biggest car show in Texas!

We saw a $100,000 pickup truck!


Quilts, photos, pickles and cooking demonstrations.

We got to sample bison burgers. Yum!


All topped off with "fair food"!

A very good day! A very good day, indeed!

I was at the Texas state fair about 20 years ago and loved it. I took a friend from New York with me, and she was stunned at the livestock. I remember her saying "THAT's a COW???".

That's a bull.

Bull, cow. Whatever.

They were judging both sexes!

(Good catch, Matt! Though it is, ahem, kind of *obvious* huh?)
