Column: A more-than-fair day for Mary
The final morning of the Dakota County Fair dawned day and cool, an antidote to the preceding week of storms and humidity. There was almost a touch of chill in the strong breeze as my husband and I walked towards the front gate. Finally the perfect weather for the fair arrived. The first order of the day was food. Egg bake casserole and not-too-strong coffee from the Trinity Lutheran Church diner fit the bill. The long tables were covered with checkered plastic tablecloths.
