      1. That makes sense. NH is in the midst of a big surge, so no post-pandemic for us.

  26. Am I allowed substitutions?
    I’ll have avocado on croissant with Cilantro Aioli and roasted tomatoes.
    Now that sounds tasty, every bit as tasty as this quite interesting fair you attended.
    And to think I thought the only place authors had was the internet! Silly me!
    The beer and wine booth is a MUST, at any fair!
