You eat really horrible food, that tastes amazing, but is not the best for you. Am I right?
So, I have had my VERY FIRST taste of the "Great New York State Fair". It was quite a treat and an absolute fantastic day with the Hubs. IT seems that lately we don't get enough time together, one or both of us are in a mood, sad, sick, or just not in a place to enjoy free time. Last week, David was off on vacation and I took Thursday and Friday off for a long 5 day weekend.
It's a 2 hour drive from Corning to Syracuse, and the weather totally cooperated too. Blue skies and sunshine. It wasn't too warm and only a touch windy. The possibilities were endless.
At first we were just wandering through barns, the cow barn was right in front of us, so we wandered through. There were cows, then we meandered through the food stalls ans various sundry barns and exhibits. It took us a while, but we found the Home and Craft Building where Ken's photography and Leah's beadwork was featured, bringing home a total of 4 ribbons between the two of them.

Then there was the first snack, "Shark on a Stick" and "Gator on a Stick". Actually both were very tasty, grilled with butter and garlic. The shark tasted like Chicken with the fish consistency, while the Gator tasted like Pork, but a bit rubberier and fattier.Still tasty though. Heck what do I know, having never eaten Gator before.

We enjoyed the last bit of Angie Johnson's concert at Chevy Court. Not normally into country, but she has a nice voice and loved the crowd, even taking a selfie with them.
