Dogging it at the fair

What is life, if not for a corndog every now and then?

I'm borrowing a phrase from George Harrison, and adapting for a more down-to-earth purpose. Although some would say corndogs can be heavenly.

There are lots of corndog choices at this year's Manatee County Fair in Palmetto. I stopped by Mark's Concessions and bought an armful today to share back in the newsroom.

"We mix our batter and stick our own dogs," one the concession workers told me.

Sure enough, I watched Tim Hamlin mix a batch of batter from scratch and dip a dog into the deep fryer.

At $4 a pop, one dog is a meal.

If you haven't gotten your corndog fix yet, better get moving. The fair ends Sunday.
