The Blue Hill Fair I

When I visited Miane recently, I went to The Blue Hill Fair, in Blue Hill Maine.

This fair provides the setting for the book Charlotte's Web, which made me cry when I was six. I even used to pretend my name is Fern.

Speaking of pigs, I saw one:

[The family arrives at the farm to take Wilbur to the fair]

Homer Zuckerman: There he is!
Mr. Arable: That's some pig.
Lurvy: He's terrific.
Avery: He's radiant.
Mrs. Zuckerman: Well, he's clean anyway. That buttermilk certainly helped.*

Wilburs, Wilburs everywhere:
