It is almost time for me to escape the sweltering Southern sun for a summer with lightning bugs, a sky brimming with stars, and gardens full of deliciousness.  Every year we go up to visit relatives in time to enjoy the annual county fair — on the same fairgrounds since 1888.

In honor of the impending trip, here are some of my favorite photos over the years.
