Kansas State Fair After Hours
Oh well, I may not be very good at math. But after Charlie Daniels told us that he was 5 years old in 1941, I eventually figured out he was 81 years old. (He revealed his age during his prelude to performing a song in tribute to our military, something he's found important since growing up during World War II.)
It made me a little ashamed that I was feeling my age after a day of exploring the fairgrounds. And Randy and I are still trying to figure out who is going to tell Jill that we need a "time out" when we're at the fair with her family tomorrow.
Back when I worked for The Hutchinson News, I was there every single day. I was much younger then!
Afterwards, I snapped a couple of photos from the grandstand before we left for the night.
