I could not rescue all of them

Out & About

Today is the last day for the 30-day run of the San Diego County Fair, the nation’s sixth-largest fair.

I was afraid that I was going to miss it this year but at the last minute I scored a free vendor/exhibitor ticket courtesy of the Pacific Photographic Society. It’s not that tickets are expensive but it’s always inconvenient to try to find a place selling tickets or to stand in the ticket line at the Fair to buy a ticket. Since my time is a little more valuable right now because of the Big Move, I figured I would just skip it. Fortunately, I didn’t have to.

The garden displays and the flower shows always are my favorite, specifically the bonsai and the dahlias. Here is one of each:

Friends know that two of my favorite food items are bacon and jalapeños, so imagine my sheer joy when I came up bacon-wrapped jalapeños:

Although I didn’t see any with my name on them, I’m pretty sure I heard all of them screaming, “Take me! Take me!”

Sadly, I could not rescue all of them….

      I thought it interesting that the Fair started in 1880 but was known as the Del Mar Fair only from 1984 to 2002. So many people still use that name, though. I heard that attendance on Friday was over 92,000, sixth best day ever.
