Here I am at the September 2007 fair 70 pounds lighter than when I had started the year.  The problem is:  when I lose weight, I look older.

I feel this is the best place to buy roasted corn at the fair.

This is a humongously big game arcade.

Price at the fair--each year, they seem to get a little higher.
