Aging at the Wisconsin State Fair

The Wisconsin State Fair in Milwaukee is always 11 days over the first two weeks of August. My birthday is always in the first week of August. Truly, it is a match made in heaven.

A Fair to Distemper

Last Thursday, I did the Wisconsin State Fair badly. In my defense, I meant well. But having been to only two state fairs in my life–Arizona’s in 1990 and New York State’s in the Shea Stadium parking lot–I was ill-prepared for the scope of Milwaukee’s century-old annual festivity. Not to mention the heat.
