Review: Family Phil & Co. Visit North Idaho Fair

I just spent six hours and about $50 at the North Idaho Fair this evening. We petted the goats and cows, then washed our hands, petted the llamas and pigs, then washed our hands. Ogled the cakes and jellies, quilts and giant pumpkins. Most fun was watching the motorcycle racers crash. Yee-hah! There's nothing quite like seeing a 10-year-old wipe out at the bottom of a dirt hill.

Also fun was meeting Kerri Thoreson for the first time. I wasn't hungry for corn on the cob, but she planted a seed in my mind and two hours later I was forking over my dollar for the delicious corn.

The Democrat booth appeared lonely, as usual. Nobody there looked like a Thom or a Dan so I just kept on walking.

Bill Sali (See: DanG photoshop above) was handing out these ingenious little feathered "Indian brave" headbands to the kids, so all over the fairgrounds were little walking Sali ads. My daughter wanted one ... we turned it inside out.

The only bad part of the evening was that my camera batteries died soon after we arrived.

DFO: BrodH20 had a close encounter with those yellow Bill Sali headbands, too, here. Anyone get a photo of those headbands with a feather sticking up in the back? HBO is open for bizness.
