|As the sign says; "Fun Games"!|
|Behind the scenes~|
In the draft horse area, we loved visiting with the owners of the Spotted Drafts! Such beautiful animals! The one above was a rescue from an Amish farm. He would shake like a leaf when touched anyplace below his mid-line. This made working with his feet, grooming etc. very difficult. He was especially afraid of men. Over time, he's now a much happier horse & enjoys his work without fear.

Our favorite stop for food is Kaleenka's - where the stuffed bread is the best thing at the Fair, next to the Indian Fry Bread! For many years we'd occasionally drive down to Seattle on a Friday night for dinner at the restaurant. In/dinner/ back home all within just a couple hours. Can't be done now with the traffic...
We came home with new pillows & a Helios Heater. I'm not really giving the product much of a plug - it does get hot & stay hot for quite a while, but to re-generate the crystal liquid inside - you have to boil the pad in a towel, in a pan of boiling water for 12-15 min. That's pretty energy wasteful. Even so - it's soft, pliable & makes my neck & shoulder feel good! :-)
We had a great time, talked to some nice people & really enjoyed our visit. If you don't mind the time in lines of traffic to get in - it's a great place to enjoy a late Summertime day!
