A Few Photos from the Dane County Farmer's Market

The Iron Man's in town.
That means Madison's filled with hundreds of mind-bogglingly fit and trim athletes this weekend. Even Mister Pepper was ready for action.

I couldn't tell if she was part of the act,
or if she was dancing only because she liked the music so much.

There's a rumor going around that the UW is no longer the drinkingest school in the nation.
At least one student would beg to disagree with that.

Main Street is open to foot traffic

The excavators move on to Carroll Street...

Le Penseur
Pondering the immutable inscrutable.

Punch Buggy
Seen at the Monona farmer's market this weekend.

There's no finer summer convertible than a Veedub.

The interior's a bit rough ...

... but it's still a happy-looking Volks.

I've owned two old microbusses, the newer camper-van and one bug,
and they'll always have a soft spot in my heart.
I can't help stopping to take a close look at a Volkswagen
wherever I see one.

A Taste of Madison

It looks just like Art Fair On The Square
except there's no art and lots of food.
I didn't think about that until after I'd looked through these snapshots
and realized I didn't see any food.
Next time, I'll mare sure to get a few snaps of the food.

Besides food, there's also lots of music.
There are stages set up on MLK Blvd, East Wash, Wisconsin Ave, and State Street,
and you can hear the band at every one of the stages from anywhere on the square.
I know I'm going to sound like a crusty old fart when I say this, but
couldn't they turn the volume down to the point where you'd hear just the band
that's in front of you?

This guy's Italian.
Both my sons tell me so.
Or, if he's not Italian, he's singing Italian songs.
He's absolutely, positively not singing Spanish songs.
No way.
I'm a dummy for even deigning to argue with them about it.
So tune in to La Movida at 1480 AM in the Madison area
to listen to all the best Italian music programming.
