Saturdays during the State Fair can get pretty hectic in the neighborhood.  There seems to be two completely separate sets of clientele on Saturdays.

I am exhausted.  I hate humid weather.  I hate the fact that the city chopped down our shade tree a couple of years ago.  I hate being a fat tub of goo that wilts in the humid sunshine.
