The last day of the fair is celebrated with a church service and today the theme was Christmas in July. It was pointed out during the service that the background noises were not unlike those in the manger – cattle lowing, sheep, chickens and shepherd boys, all together.
We sang Christmas carols and worshipped together as a community.
Both Vera and June wanted to sit on Grandma’s lap at the same time.
My poor little hen and chicks in the rock only earned a white ribbon – the rain was very hard on it the week before the fair but I thought planting in a rock would make an interesting display. The judge didn’t agree with me, I guess.
There’s always next year. Just think about all the beautiful plants here at home that could have gone to the fair and done so much better.
Late this afternoon was the greased pig contest and then all exhibits are released. Such a busy week -this week will be the start of canning hot dog relish. I will share the recipe and pictures for any of you who also have cucumbers, peppers and onions in your garden.
