Jackson County Fair

Most of the Davidson Family spent yesterday evening at the Jackson County, MI Fair, whose theme was, apparently “Becaged Animals”.  Cows, sheep, ducks, loud roosters, pigs, horses and tractors stuck in drive — all kept in or at least near a cage.  One horse, whom we will call “Bitey”, looked better in a cage — at least from my parental perspective.   Miles and miles of livestock.  I found myself getting hungry for beef, thirsty for milk, and apologetic to the animals.  “I’m sorry, Wilbur.  I really am.  It’s just that you’re so delicious. I’m sure you understand.  Yes.  Keep eating, my snouted friend.  And by the way… you can keep the snout.”
