There are tons of perks to being a teacher. The main being free State Fair of Texas tickets. Every year that JBB gets them, we put them in a special place on the fridge and anxiously await for the day our schedules will allow us to attend. This year we barely made it but this evening we came & conquered.

The only real reason we go to the State Fair is for the Fletcher’s Corny Dogs.


JBB wanted to look at the “Trucks, Trucks, Trucks, Trucks” – especially the new Chevy Silverados. This one had THREE cup holders – one for your Super Big Gulp, one fer yer spit cup and one fer yer coffee. Oh, this truck also cost $56,000 plus another $150,000 in gasoline.

I really wanted this car, though. All the benefits of a Vespa with the look and feel of a mule.

I think I figured out this year’s Christmas Card:

After looking at the “Trucks, Trucks, Trucks, Trucks”, we wandered upon the largest crowd we had seen yet at the fair. It was a Texas Lotto exhibit. After I took this picture, some State Troopers informed me that there was no photography:

That’s the Paul Adams Game Show. Here is Paul’s jacket. JBB is going to order one from the Men’s Warehouse tomorrow for our black tie event at the Ritz-Carlton in November.

This is our #2 Reason for going to the Fair:cotton

We paid our respects at the Carat 2000. (Never Forget – Carat – 1999-2007 – Sarah’s cat).

We saw a guy in what had to be an International Male shirt (in the green).

JBB tried a Funnel Cake for the first time. His review: “eh, I could’ve bought a half-gallon of Blue Bell Homemade Ice Cream instead.”

On our way out we saw the Egyptian who discovered the X-Ray:


We’ll see you next year, Big Tex!
