More Corn and Bred
I was trying to write, really I was, but giddiness over Rock Star's impending return and the realization that if I finish writing, I have to go back - combined with a still disorganized house and wireless internet - was too much for me to deal with.
So I packed up the furkids and drove to my parents' place in Indiana: The Land of Dial-up, Sunshine, Good Food, and Good Company. It also helped that some dear friends were in town and it was 4-H Fair Week. 'Cos y'all know that, even though I was punk rock 'n stuff in high school, I was still a 10-year 4-H member. And ran for Fair Queen. Word.
The 4-H and Open Class exhibit buildings were full of lots of great projects. Being Indiana, there were some big beautiful corn specimens.
Although Cake Decorating had some professional-level projects...
...this little cake stole my heart.
Despite some hidden Knox County talent, I'm so sick at how few textile projects there were that I can't even talk about it. I mean a pair of elastic waistband pants WON THE OPEN CLASS GRAND CHAMPION!
After K and yours truly - the snarky hometown girl - finished rejudging all the exhibits, we were famished and stopped by the Pork Producers' booth for some food, but it was already CLOSED!
So we stopped by the Sandborn Lion's Club booth for some pizza from Jim and Amy's in Bicknell - quite possibly the most perfect piece of pie you will ever get. Mine was loaded with pork, of course.
Then it was off to the animal barns. We ran into a kid that I babysat when I was a kid. He is now t w e n t y and his younger sister was a candidate for Fair Queen.
So the Circle of Life continues.
PS - I just returned to cable-fast-modem. And Rock Star is coming home Sunday morning. So I probably won't catch up with you for a little while. But I hope you're all well.
