Our road trip to the Texas State Fair went very well. The only traffic we encountered was outbound from Austin in rush hour, as we deftly avoided the overpass-induced highway closure on our return. The Streeters hosted us for two nights, during which we got to see old family photos and engage in lively discussion. Thanks Art & Maxine! We saw the car show, sat in a few new seats, and lusted after nigh-unattainable performance. Corny dogs, of course. There were bagpipers, model trains, a Texas music exhibit,creepy miniatures, a carousel on the midway, and giant fried turkey legs. Plus, excellent public transportation.
