We really didn't eat all that much and I was surprised at the amount of cuisine de faire (corn dogs, funnel cakes, etc.) that was available, but Mrs. Chicken still did a little bit of cheese sampling. My favorite item was probably the slow cooker filled with melted butter that was being used for a grilled cheese sandwich assembly line; if I'd only had a straw...
Thanks to the wonders of modern technology we didn't meet up with the Roadhouses (using the louse/mouse example, why wouldn't it be Roadhice?) until after we'd been there for a couple of hours but we managed to catch up with them for a little while.
The actual title of the event is "Green County Cheese Days" and it did seem like everyone in Green County was there, with an equal number of flatlanders based on an informal license plate count. I figured there'd be a crowd but didn't expect it to be as large as it was; Buddy theorized that the parade (all 3+ hours of it) might've had something to do with it and that Saturday might be a little less packed. And apparently this year Saturday came with some bonus entertainment, as I heard on the radio this morning that some 22-year-old idjit from Illinois got locked up Saturday night for punching a police officer
who was investigating a disturbance at a bar (there's beer at Cheese Days...surprise, surprise).
Now that we know roughly what to expect I think our next visit (2016) will be more enjoyable.
