We went to our county fair last night.
Saw a bit of this:
Tractor pulling. Yep. It is actually fun to watch as most of the tractors are vintage and restored and quite cool to look at. It’s not like NASCAR or anything–not loud or fast. This guy had to go 3 times as he out-pulled the weight and then had to go to a pull-off with another guy who did the same and then this guy finally won. Yep. It’s pretty relaxing up there in the shady stands with a huge scoop of Tillamook ice cream, my man, my son and vintage tractors.
Our little fair is of the old-fashioned variety: it has cows, sheep, goats,chickens,pigs and this year they added llamas. It still has a craft section and a section for baked goods and canning (not near the animals). Anybody can enter and anybody does from the looks of things….of course there are scary ass rides which my girls go on but I’ll go nowhere near. I’m kicking myself for not taking my camera and getting some cool shots with the lensbabie or even something other than roses but I forgot and all I had was my cellphone…At least the temperature was totally bearable and comfortable so we had a good time.
And this is Angus modelling my 3 completed socks for me. Yes, I know he has 4 legs and I could have put a sock on each paw but even getting him to do this was pushing it. I had meant to take the picture with the socks on the pretty quilt when he jumped his huge labradorian ass up there so I put him to work. Love his "what the hell are you doing to me? Can I chew these?" expression.
Going to take the kids to see Talladega Nights today and then a quiet dinner out with Doug. Things are pretty damn good from here…
