Fried Alligator and Fuzzy Cows

My kids and I head to the Illinois State Fair annually with my parents. Man-Farmer always has to work the week of the fair because it's always scheduled the week before the university he works at starts classes.  He's busy that final week fine-tuning his employee schedules, making sure everything needed has been ordered.  Stuff … Continue reading Fried Alligator and Fuzzy Cows

Pies, Aging, And An Empty Sh*tter.
