The Michigan State Fair is in dire straits, its future uncertain. Sometimes it seems like everything in Metro Detroit is falling apart or going away. There's hope though. Azucena and I drove down to 8 mile and Woodward over Labor Day weekend for what we thought was the last time we might get to go draw some livestock there. We were pleasantly surprised to hear that the fair would be back next year! I don't know if this is true as I couldn't find anything saying so online, but who knows? There were also petitions to sign to save the fair. Hopefully something good will happen. I need somewhere to go for that bottomless glass of chocolate milk (which, by the way, they ran out of before I got any this year).
