Happy Birthday to me / First Day of the State Fair!

In case you somehow missed my standard month-long countdown because I’ve been off galavanting around America’s heartland, today is in fact my favorite day of the year, my birthday. And the day is off to a pretty good start. Nator the Great served me up some raspberries and fresh whipped cream, along with caramel toffee scones for breakfast! Ohh, that boy knows the way to my heart. Though I can’t recall a birthday in the past where I’ve prayed for rain, this year rain means getting off work, so I’ve been hoping, and wishing… And it looks like the gods are smiling upon me because the radar is showing thunderstorms all across the metro! What’s more, it’s the first day of the Great Minnesota Get-Together! It’s almost as if the whole state of Minnesota is celebrating my birthday…

In honor of the greatest event of all time, here is some suggested reading: http://www.myprontopup.com/weblog2.html. Yesterday’s "Love Tilt-a-whirl" posting has a link to a seriously awesome music video: "State Fair Lady". Though it can’t steal the place in my heart for Scotty’s "I Wanna Go to the MN State Fair".

And to help prepare for MN State Fair ‘06, I think it appropriate to reminisce about MN State Fair ‘05, with the following photos. Enjoy.
