Dane County fair. Food consumed: some Chocolate Shoppe ice cream, lemonade, a banh mi, Thai iced tea, chicken yassa from Keur Fatou. We saw two young cows auctioned for $400 and $425. We rode the Blizzard and the Ferris wheel. (The trip is now just two revolutions long — sorry, but that’s a ripoff, for five bucks I should get at least four top-offs.) This year’s circus acts were frisbee-catching dogs and two motorcyclists in the Globe of Death. (Good, but not as good as the year the Flying Wallendas themselves came to town.) We didn’t stay for the Christian rock act but heard them soundcheck a very faithful “Can’t Stop The Feeling!”
