Early bird gets the hashbrowns!

Good Morning from the Midway!

Yep, the Fair hasn’t officially opened yet but here I am!  We arrived before 9:00am so my husband could enter some veggies in the Fair’s second-half Open Class competition.  Fingers crossed!

I like the pre-open-gates vibes on the Fairgrounds.  It’s mellow, a little sleepy, not quite caffeinated, somewhat expectant, preparatory.  Maybe all mornings are like this; I’m a night person so I try not to know.

We’ve handed over some garden bounty and have enjoyed a tasty egg-hashbrowns-and-pancake breakfast from the chicken-Mexican-grilled-corn-breakfast spot just west of the milkshake barn.  We’ve been noshing with 4-H kids, vendors, fire department guys, and seniors who arrived early to take in their special “Prime of Your Life Day.”  It sort of feels like a secret club here. The We’re Here All The Time Club.  I like it.  They are my people.

I am a Clark County Fair Fanatic and eat all things fried during the glorious 10 days of The Fair. I have lived in Clark County since 2004 and consider it the second-best decision of my life. I am married to a great guy named Rob (first-best decision) who graciously carries my stuff and takes my picture every time I eat something at The Fair. We have two indoor cats and lots of deer, rabbits, and coyotes who are kind enough to stay outside.
