But why did I even go if not for the cheese? Well, it was all business - sort of - as one of my former colleagues has her own lab at Marquette and needed some help to teach her students to perform brain surgeries in mice. And as it happened to be one of my favorite former colleagues we also had plans outside of the lab. She did ask me if I had anything I wanted to see or do in Milwaukee and I don’t know about you, but I do not carry around a Milwaukee bucket list ready to go....... Lucky for us the state fair was taking place and if you want Wisconsin action the state fair is the place of:Cow washing
Bacon with bacon dip
And...... drum roll please! The world famous 50cent milk bar:
We even took rides together:
And watched pig races
And I have to say that I had the most fun I have ever had at a state fair.
I really hope that this is not the last time Deanna and I will be going on adventures together:
(Yes. That is a bacon hat!)
