Last week at this time, Big Sissy, Bubby, and I were having a blast at the Indiana State Fair thanks to the Indiana Soybean Alliance and the Year of the Soybeans, Indiana Pork, Indiana's Family of Farmers and the American Dairy Association of Indiana.

I have so many memories of watching great concerts there with my mom. It used to be one of our traditions after we were done showing our livestock at the fair. It just seems unbelievable that something like that could happen at a place I know like the back of my hand. There truly are no words to describe it.
The only thing we know to do at this pigpen is to continue to pray for all of those impacted and to head back to the Indiana State Fair to show our support because we truly are lucky to have such a great State Fair.
The Indiana State Fair runs through this Sunday and I hope those of you within driving distance will be able to visit. I know we will be there.
So from the words of Rodgers and Hammerstein just remember, "Our state fair is a great state fair. Don't miss it. Don't even be late."
