MN Kids ID at the Fair

My wife and I will be working the Kids ID booth this weekend at the Minnesota State Fair. I have worked a Kids ID booth before at the local celebratory days in Farmington but I have never worked "the Fair". For those unfamiliar with the Minnesota State Fair, it is the biggest celebration in the state; it ranks second in attendance after Texas. I, for one, am excited to eat my usual favorites: cheese curds and a rib sandwich.

Here is a fun fact about the MN State Fair: On Sept. 2, 1901, Brother Teddy Roosevelt gave his famous "Speak Softly and Carry a Big Stick" Speech at the MN State Fair. Days later, he became president after President and (Brother) William McKinley was assassinated.

Nick, however out of touch I might be (think Harvey Birdman) I am impressed with your service, and impressed at your blogsite. Good Job, and Keep 'em coming!
