(Electric went off this morning and I lost what I was working on. That is why I am late posting. BTW, don't forget that you can click on all the pictures to enlarge)
Wife and I wandered to the fair. It was a fair fair day and there was no fare. Yes another fair day, bright sun and blue sky in the low 80’s with a nice breeze. And it was a day that the county fair was going on. So that made it a fair fair day, right? And, since it was free during the day, there was no fare at the fair. Yesterday was senior citizens day and they were holding a big event at the convention center which is located next to the fair grounds. They must have had a fair turnout since the parking lot was full. We decided not to go to it, but to walk around the fair grounds, which was a fair piece from the convention center I think it is fair to say.
They say you get what you pay for, and since it was free, there was hardly anything going on. The children’s petting zoo was open and there were a few school bus loads of little kids coming and going. The country store was open and of course you could walk through the large shelters and look at all the fine bred farm animals.
We also walked through another building that was open and had different displays and the petting zoo. Here are a couple of pictures of my favorite tractors, Farmall and John Deere. I had a Farmall 200.
Behind the Farmall tractors was the petting zoo. And here is a picture of my wife with the type of farm animals we would like. You know, the kind that you don’t have to feed or pick up after:
Behind my wife in this picture is a hill of goats. When we first walked up to it, we thought that they were statues, also, since they were standing and lying so still. I took a look and told her they were alive. At first, she didn’t believe me, then after staring at one for awhile, it decided it had enough attention and climbed on up the hill.
Here are some pictures of the carnival. First the Fun House:
And places to eat:
