I went to the animal fair,
The birds and the beasts were there,
The big baboon by the light of the moon
Was combing his auburn hair.
You should have seen the monk,
He sat on the elephant's trunk;
The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees,
And what became of the monk,
the monk, the monk?
It's been years and years and years since I went to the fair but one thing I remember is the agricultural exhibits... do they ever change? I was totally impressed with the super-large tomatoes, the artfully arranged veggies and this 558 pound pumpkin!
Of course there are always fun things too, like this decorated toilet and the tractor in lady-like colors...
|closeup of the tractor - it's a Ford!|
The decorated cakes were impressive and I thought the goose herder was kinda cute.
Those geese were fearless! One HONK! and people moved the heck outta their way!
There weren't too many quilts; I like scrappy and colorful, so here's one I shot:
By this time the heat was rising and my friend was sweating, so we didn't see the entire fair. Maybe next time!
ps - does anyone know how to make your comment area have the "Reply" link? I've searched far and wide and can't find the instruction ... maybe I haven't searched wide enough?
Have a great Monday, today I buy a new ceiling fan - sew forth and sew on!
