Iowa State Fair hits me in the heart with its tribute to 100 years of the butter cow.
The sand sculpture in the Cultural Center is gradually turning into a cow and calf beside a very large block of butter and an even larger butter knife.
Duffy Lyon who sculpted the butter cow for 46 years and who passed away this year. Standing beside the butter cow is a teenage Duffy holding a butterfly in her hand. Also in sculpture is a young version of Joe Lyon, her husband of 60 years.
I hope you make it to the Iowa State Fair this year. And while you're there, find a cow. Or 100. It's only fitting.
