A Good Old County Fair

I'll likely say more on this later, but it has been awhile since I have been here, so am posting a little now. It has been awhile primarily because I was busy at our local county fair. At a time in our nation when so many of the special things of the past have slipped away, it is refreshing to attend a good old county fair.

Here is a world full of competitions for genuine home grown and home made fruits, vegetables, jams, jellies, pickles, cakes, cookies, and so much more. The stables are full of animals raised by kids of all ages. Treat street is loaded with corn dogs, pasties, pulled pork sandwiches, and a host of other good stuff, all sold by local non-profit groups.

Meanwhile the giant Farris wheel and a host of other rides bring thrills and laughs. Square dancers, magicians, and minstrels add to the fun.

A great place for all ages to have a fun time!
