The light is changing and the wind is shifting. Days of stifling heat are nearly over. I don't need a weather report, calendar, or almanac to tell me all of that. The end of the fair brings on autumn as sure as rain and sunshine bring on a rainbow.
Goodbye to all of you I only see once a year. It was good to see you again.
Goodbye to thrills that tickle your tummy and to food that fills it up like no other food on earth.
Goodbye to the characters city people like me rarely see up close.
There's a chill in the air left by the ghosts who blew in and out over a span of twelve days ~ a chill that will turn the leaves golden and send the birds south.
Goodbye again, Minnesota State Fair. You charmed me as you always do and left me wanting more. I'll meet up with you again next year.
