Perhaps it is the carnival atmosphere. But I believe the one main thing that keeps calling is the desire to see what they will deep fry next. This year the list is long. Bacon cheeseburgers, hot dogs, white castle, pickle dogs, pop tarts, klondike bars, candy bars, and believe it or not, banana splits.
While I try not to indulge too much, I have been known to slip in a corn dog or two.
I am always afraid that I will turn around, dog in hand, to see my doctor staring back at me. Then I have to try and convince him that they are for the wife.
Another thing I love about the fair is that I go with those I love and care about and you can't put a price on that. It has almost become a family tradition.
So starting this weekend, maybe I'll see you there. And don't forget to say hello if we meet up.
I just have to find out how they are going to deep fry that banana split.
