~*~*~*~This week we've been working the DuQuoin State Fair and it's been... interesting, yes, and fun. The week has been slow as far as business so we've had time to sit and rest (which is nice, to an extent). Thankfully, the weekends are busier.
|Fonzie, me, and Toby. Resting before the evening crowd arrives.|
Working the fair is a family thing for us--we're there, working together. We take turns working the monkeys and pitching in where and when needed.

Monkeys don't miss a thing. Fonzie may be busy shaking hands, but he sees everything that goes on...including friends and family members as they come and go.

It's been very hot this week and people have been concerned about the monkeys working in the heat--but they don't mind the heat. White face Capuchins are native of Central and South American jungles and they are made for the heat (but not the cold). We have lots of water and snacks for them and fans, but often they'll move out the fan breeze. On the other hand, we've been boiling in the heat and humidity.
But I have to admit, the best part of working this fair has been the friends we've made and spending time with family members. God gave us great neighbors at the fair and it's been great talking with them.
God's also given us a great family and I've loved hanging out with them this week.
Kids, grandkids, monkeys. Does it get any better than this?
We are blessed.
So tell me, what's your favorite thing about the fair?
