County Fair!


He didn't want to go.  I begged him to drive me there because I had forgotten exactly where it is: Gaithersburg...the Montgomery County (Md.) Fair!  We used to go a lot as kids with my Dad.  He was a fair-nut.  He also liked going to the Maryland State Fair in Timonium, and one year took me to see the trotters race.  The 4-H is still very engaged - thankfully.  I enjoyed watching the young teenagers show their cattle in the cattle pavilion - so clean cut and so earnest.  We didn't bother with the midway, above, but there is no such thing as a county fair without one.
More than anything, I loved the animals.  They have a calming effect on me.  Why, I wonder?
Can you reproduce the color pink that you see in this pig?!
And the babies...
There was poultry...
There was cattle...
When we got home, Molly was so very interested in the soles of our shoes.  I could practically hear her say, "Where have you been walking and why couldn't I be there, too?!"
