Down on the Farm: County fair

Email

The county fair comes to town this week. With it, hundreds of suburban expatriates return to their small-town stomping grounds for a big dollop of summertime nostalgia.

The long rays of late-evening sunshine, the peak summer green in the fields, and the pleasant, temperate nights make it a prime time to come home and party around the clock with the old gang.

Holler when its over so I can crawl out from underneath the bed and resume a normal life.
