Big Tex was ours last night. Some faves:
Quote: “I feel like fairs used to be more like The Masters, classy, with a lot of rich people…I guess not anymore” – Jen
Moment: I think the parents taking video/pictures of their screaming 2-year old on the motorcycle carousel is going to be tough to top.
Animal: The 1200 lb. pig (see below)
Food: (Tie) Fried Peaches & Cream and Fried Ice Cream. We were too weak (or intelligent) to try the fried butter.
Show: The piglet races. OK, we didn’t actually see them, but they happened…and in our minds they were hilarious.

A great new e-book from somebody creating art. Who doesn’t love a blog called ‘messy canvas’? Isn’t that kind of the point of this whole thing? Have at it…
Some of our best friends have a blog (yes, they’re awesome, thanks for asking). If you haven’t checked it out, this was one of my favorite posts of September.
A pretty intense story about an entrepreneur who thinks he’s a cross between Zuckerburg and Jobs. He’s trying to take over the world (maybe literally) and he’s really bizarre.
We’re headed to see Big Tex today. Major fist pumpage going on in the Porter household. Fried margaritas for everyone! You guys have a good weekend.

We walked away from Canton relatively unscathed ($5 for a quilt that may or may not have been made in one of the last two centuries). I have to admit it was a lot of fun and a photo-taking extravaganza. Enjoy.
I’m not going to lie, I was pretty proud of the boots picture…
I wanted every single one of those soda crates. Alas.
Those baseball cleats had my name (and a severely sprained ankle) written all over them…
