Today is the second day that Nicole and I have had the opportunity to spend time at the 2009 Kansas State Fair. We left on Sunday afternoon and will be headed back to Kansas City tonight. It has been a great vacation with my family of origin.

I invite you to check out for more information and the source of this blog post title.

Some of my favorites from the fair:

  • Pronto Pups
  • Commercial Building (or whatever it is called these days)
  • Browsing the Midway
  • Going on at least one ride with a name like “The Scrambler” or “High Roller” or the one that looks like a spider with twirly legs.
  • Ye Olde Mill
  • Root beer with no ice from the big barrels

What is your favorite at the fair?

Hope for the New Year

I have several hopes for the new year. If you want to understand them as New Year’s resolutions, I think that would be fine.

  1. Journey through the year in photographs with Project 365.
  2. Keep a one sentence diary each day in 2009.
  3. Be healthier on December 31, 2009 than I am today, including weighing 185 pounds on or before that date.

I am looking forward to the year. What are you planning / hoping for in 2009?
