I just spent three great nights at the Erie County Fair. Can't believe I've been going out there now for 23 years! The fair is really one of the highlights of the summer here in Western New York. For me, it's not so much the food or the rides or the grandstand shows, it's the animals.
I made sure I left myself some time the other night to head over to the Agriculture buildings. If you are a city kid, like me, it's really nice to get into the barns and get up close to the animals. I got to pet the cows, chickens, ducks, rabbits, goats and the little pigs. It's kind of neat! About the only thing that wasn't, was watching this huge cow do his "business". He didn't even bother to stand up! Just let loose as he lay there munching on some hay. Well, it was kind of interesting though, now I have a much better understanding of "Cow Pies" and how they are formed! When you're in the "News" business, you need to know a "little" bit about a "lot" of things. Now I know.
