Tomorrow is the first day of our county fair. It's not very big, but it's still a lot of work. I have my stuff gathered up to enter and will make some cookies in the morning to take. Hope some of my flowers perk up in the night so i can take a few; heat has been ruthless lately. Four o'clocks and crepe myrtle are looking pretty good. No roses, poor things. I have a few vegetables to take. I'm taking my felt food and some other needlework to enter, and a couple of photos to enter. I am supervisor for the Antique section and it's always a busy spot. This year instead of people entering their animals in certain classes, the Fair board is sponsoring a jackpot. We'll see how this works out. The number of animals entered the last few years has been dwindling, so they are going to try the jackpot. Horse club is hosting a clinic on Saturday and I said I'd bring Dapper Dan in to show harnessing. I might take Midnight instead; she would enjoy it and she has better manners! My mom is in a nursing home. The residents have been busy making things for a few weeks to enter in the fair. The bus will take them to the fair; they are looking forward to that! Isn't that neat that the nursing home helps them with that? Most of the residents are farm folk who entered things in the fair their whole lives. She wouldn't have gone if she'd been home and we offered to take her, but now she's looking forward to going on the bus!
