August is County Fair month. I mean to go every year. With all that intention, it’s been a long time. This year I went. 4-H nostalgia washed over me. The cows, the pigs, the rabbits. The cookies, the pies, the veggies. This week, I’m interviewing two blue ribbon exhibitors for newspaper feature articles. The 11-year-old scone baker, started 4-H when she was six!
Maybe all that nostalgia is my eyes stopped National Geographic’s “Why Animals Make Us Better People.” Dr. Pol is a 73-year-old veterinarian and star of The Incredible Dr. Pol television show. He grew up in the Netherlands, but lives in rural Michigan. Hey, that’s where I grew up.
