Fonda Fair

This fair stuff is all well and good but I wanna play with stones

Went over yesterday for a few hours to enjoy Peggy's reaction and get some notes for this week's Farm Side.

There is nothing that compares with an agricultural fair. From the scent of cotton candy and the ring of carnival music to the mooing of the dairy cows and the clucking of the artificial chickens in the poultry barn it has to be experienced to be understood.

Seriously, stop taking my stones!

We had a great time, from eating the first tasty apples of the year that we bought at the Dairy Promotion booth, to talking to some of our dearest friends that we only see once a year.

Di looks like a wild thing, but she is really very sweet

I'm not sure how often I will go back, as I didn't enter anything this year, so I don't have a pass....and I'm lazy.

However, the kids are there with the ponies, Miss Peggy is having a great time, and I'm sure you will too if you stop over.

Have fun!

Look, a stone, Uncle Alan, let me go!

Matt is off for the rest of the week. He and Lisa were there yesterday. They took a lot of blues, a couple reds, and only a couple went unplaced. I miss all the excitement, but know I wouldn't be able to walk around very much. Thanks for the Peggy pictures. Love to all. Mom

Lazy? You need to check the meaning of the word. I often get worn out just reading your blog.

I miss our fair, sadly our county feels it's "too country-like" to have a fair. I bet Peggy is having a blast. Good luck to the pony girl!
