Another big draw for me at the Minnesota State Fair is the veterinary surgeries. Vets donate their time to demonstrate the necessity of spaying and neutering our pets. I observed the spaying of an approximately eight-month-old black cat, starting with the pre-op preparations by technicians (behind glass as we observed on the bleachers) to the actual surgical procedure enlarged for the audience on televisions. The following photos show the incision and removal of the ovaries before the uterus was removed and then the final stitching by the good doctor. Fascinating!!

Yesterday I went to the Minnesota State Fair. My first two stops as usual were the Education and Fine Arts Buildings. In addition to learning about the number of educational programs, schools and institutions in the education area, student artwork is always on display.
Can you believe that these three pieces are created by students!? The top photo is the work of a 7th grader, a ninth grade student created the haunting image on the left. Because I lost my sheet of notes, I do not recall the grade level of the artist of the female subject. I am mightily impressed with the talent exhibited by these three student artists.

Last night as we drove home after having an outstanding dinner at a restaurant (more on that later) in Ellsworth, Wisconsin, we were treated to a spectacular sky of sunset and storm clouds. The photos were taken from the car as we drove down the highway. . . not bad, but nature provided the scene!

Last Sunday got up early to go to Mississippi Blvd to take photos as I watched these Wonder Women fly by! I was pleasantly surprised to see how cheerful most of them seemed. Some passed me by without a glance, but many of them had a smile, a wave, or a cheery hello!
