Santa Cruz County Fair, Watsonville, Ca

Saturday: (09/18) We started with a visit to another old lumber store that is closing. They evidently have been at it a while and everything is now 75% off. We managed to find a few things that they still had that we needed.

We all headed down to Watsonville after lunch to the Santa Cruz County Fair. It's still a nice fair, not like our own. We looked around at the crafts, talked with some of the crafty people, peeked at the animals and all the usual fair things.

This 1906 steam powered car is in the antique farm equipment museum at the Santa Cruz Fair. We really liked the vegetable art.

We chose this day to attend the fair because the comedian Gallagher provided the main show of the evening. We saw his show a number of years ago at the Flint Center in Cupertino and it's at least as good now. He spent lots of time talking  to the attendees, signing autographs, and posing for pictures before the show. He seems to really like his audience. The show lasted an hour and a half and he proved he definitely is a clear thinker and spent the show trying to educate us.

PBJ English muffin for breakfast. Tidbits from the Hong Kong Bakery in Downtown Mountain View for lunch. I had a couple of pork stickers, Dawn had a moon cake, Lou had a pork bun. Dinner was corn on the cob and garlic fries at the fair.
