I love the County Fair. I know I am biased, but I think we have an exceptional fair here at home. It has a bit of everything you can expect and there is something comforting in that familiarity. Although the numbers have dwindled in recent years, there is still plenty of livestock to see as well other exotic animals. Adults still enter jams and jellies and crafts of all sorts for display and judging and I always have a few photos to submit. Mechanical and welding projects overflow from the buildings and there is always a name you recognize on the stage performing each night. We always enjoy visiting with old friends and meandering through the displays and exhibits.
We went to the fair a lot this year. Mostly, we went to see my nephews show their cattle… It is a lot of fun to see Leroy and his sister step back in time and relive those old memories of when they used to show cattle themselves. So much work goes into each project and this is their chance to earn the recognition they deserve.
