Yesterday Becky and I went to the Clay County Fair about 90 miles west of here. I have heard about this fair, the Spencer fair, all my life and have never been there even once. People say it’s as good or better than the state fair and I would have to agree. The first thing we did when we arrived was eat a funnel cake – ha! (Why don’t I take more pictures when we go on these outings???)
This “hobo” jeep made the rounds.
There was live entertainment at several different venues and since we once again managed to get to the fair on Senior Citizen Day, we noticed there were plenty of scooters parked outside the tent. Here is a scooter with an additional wide plank laid across the seat for double occupancy. Isn’t this sweet?
And here is another double scooter – this one has a desk chair secured on a platform which is welded to the back of a scooter so the Missus can ride, too.
We toured all the travel trailers, watched part of the horse show, shopped for antiques, walked through the cattle barns – there were no cattle there. We examined the poultry and saw the baby ducks going down the waterfall and searched for the goats who sadly weren’t arriving until tomorrow. Argh! The quilts were displayed so nicely and once again I picked out one gal’s quilts that I loved. I believe they were antique quilt tops that were newly machine quilted. I have never seen such lovely machine quilting and I’ve seen lots of machine quilting in my day. My pictures didn’t turn out.
On our way home we stopped at a greenhouse where we saw this huge beautiful fern. I wish I could grow ferns this big!
