Too long at the fair …

My kids and I look forward to and enjoy the sounds, crowds of people, bright lights and variety of a fair. I insist that the kids eat a meal before we go so I don’t have to buy every treat in sight. My plans never do work out right. And, I guess, what is a fair or carnival without cotton candy, snowcones, popcorn, huge pickles or barbecue sandwiches? You don’t have such things every day.

Fairs are extraordinary. That is what makes them so special. You don’t hear those particular sounds, say, at a basketball tournament. Sports have their own smells, sounds, tastes and atmospheres.

It was a long time coming, with a number of hurdles, but after four months of renovation it is no longer just a dream to have a new clinic in Kadoka.
