From the Washington County Fair, that is, where I sat behind the booth for five days.
Thanks a million to Roxanne Nelson for accepting the booth as a concession, and to the other fair volunteers. Thanks also to Susana Gardner for the idea and to her and her daughter Stella, equestrienne and woods investigator, for hosting me for four nights and walking in the woods with me.
I still have to transcribe and post the Foo Fest booth stint and I’ll be doing that tonight / tomorrow, but thereafter you should watch this spot to learn about the people who spoke with me, the foodstuffs I ate (fried and otherwise), the number of climate change deniers I fielded, and the livestock I peered at. For the time being, I leave you with the best thing I saw at the fair, from a (probably very) Junior 4-H member’s research project on dogs. You’re looking at the text with the red border, at far left, which I imagine to be the presenter taking advantage of the just-realized possibilities of a public platform.
