Wednesday: (06/28) Since i had a lull in the project at home we headed off to Pleasanton to the Alameda County Fair. This week the temperatures are much better than last week. We stopped at Safeway for a snack before entering the land of junky fair food. We had to wait a couple of minutes before the gate opened. This fair is one of the best remaining anywhere nearby. Lots of art, crafts, and even some wood projects. A great garden area. And a lot of commercial stuff. We managed to keep busy until about 1800 then departed and went to dinner before driving back toward home. Of course we stopped at a couple of thrift stores in Milpitas before heading off the rest of the way home. About 1430 the dumpster folks called and asked if they could swap the dumpster today rather than tomorrow. I confirmed it with Ernie who was at home. He met them and got it swapped. That means a work day rather than a wait day tomorrow. Apricot pie for breakfast. Brunch at Safeway. I had chicken strips and potato wedges. Curly fries at the fair. Dinner at Sweet Tomatoes Restaurant in Pleasanton.
