Cotton Candy

I recall tasting cotton candy when I was a kid. Even then, I wasn’t sure it was good for me; certainly, the way in which it melted down into a gummy wad of sugar in the mouth was a unique experience.

Well, sooner or later everyone has to try tasting it for themselves.  This couple is having a total-immersion experience at the annual Dakota County Fair in Farmington, Minnesota. The photo was taken on the occasion of my 50th class reunion. As it happened, it was also the weekend of the fair, so I was able to take in both events. I felt a bit nostalgic because my mother used to work at the VFW refreshment stand in the fairgrounds every summer while I was growing up.  While she worked at the concession, I roamed around gazing at the rides and looking at the agriculture displays.
