I had the pumpkin spice hush puppies with pumpkin spice glaze at Old North State Kitchen today. Highly recommend them if you love any pumpkin. And do make sure to get the glaze with it.

This was a funny one yesterday. They forgot to renew their domain name and it expired. Fixed not obviously.

Went to the fair yesterday and was surprised to see the crowd as large as it was. Granted, it was a beautiful day but I was hoping more people would have stayed at work and kids would have been in school!!! Wishful thinking!

Did anyone else think the prices on the games have gone up tremendously? Or am I just forgetting what we paid last year?

And even the kids' rides used so many tickets?

My Fair account of Fairs.
As a kid they were the 3F's!
Fantastic, Freaky, and Fabulous!
As a parent that had young kids they were 3F's as well!
Frightening, Funny, and Fluffy (cotton candy wise)
As a parent with grown children they are now just 2C's!
Crowded and Costly!

My Fair evolution account.

We had a good time yesterday arrived at 9:45am, rides opened at 10:00. We got to go on every ride the little ones wanted to with no lines. We also saw the military parade.

We purchased the early tickets and what not at Food Lion. I spent a total of 96 dollars for the day. This includes, entrance, ride tickets, few games, funnel cake, ice cream some, other fried food. Family of 4. We had packed our own lunch and drinks to bring it. We left around 12:45

In my observation, it seems like attendance is down.



I last went in either 2017 or 2016, and it was shoulder to shoulder... could barely move. I've been twice now... once Friday at peak time at night and again today on can food day (just got back), and it was extremely navigable. Nothing like two years ago.





I also frequent the fairground area for business, and it really hasn't been that bad (comparatively speaking) up there.


And TarHeel, I stand corrected, there are some tendons in the "turkey" leg... but the ham taste and consistency are still undeniable. The stuffed crack gives you "real" turkey and the "turkey" leg and the difference is night and day.



I really need to know what's going on here.

Sad to say that last night I just couldn't muster up the will to wait in the insane line that the Crackin truck had. I went back 45 minutes later and the line of people who were waiting to order were now all clustered at the pickup window waiting for their food to be ready. Ain't nobody got time for that!

Was also disappointed that they were all out of the JoCo Jalepno Whopper.....but did get a "JoCo HoHo".

Campfire on a stick also had an inexcusable line BUT I did try the GIANT Reeses donut and it was on point.

Maybe I'll get to try the crackin'-stuffed turkey leg next year.

I considered the giant Reeses but I went with the crackin stuffed and corn on the cob and Amish donuts and the pimento cheese crab balls...


20 bucks is steep for the crack... but it's goooooood....
