I hope to take the big camera over early tomorrow morning and take a series of pictures.
There's lots to see if you go early.
I went to feed the poultry again this morning,
and volunteered to do the next two mornings, as well.
I enjoy it.
Poultry and rabbits share the same barn. I found out last night that
they were moved to a smaller barn this year, based on last year's entries.
Instead of the expected 200 poultry entries, there were 305! They are petitioning for changes in the poultry show next year. I hope the board of governors listens.
Believe me, there was a cacaphony when I started feeding and watering.
Many of them were HANGRY!!!
Keith had surgery yesterday, and I dropped him at dialysis this morning, so I took time
to wander a little after I fed and watered.
You know I lingered at the goats.
But, I enjoyed looking at the hogs, too.... and I spoke with a nice young man (second grade) this morning who followed me around as I watered... he was showing Durocs and Hamps.... and... AMERICAN HEREFORDS. He emphasized it like that!
This was not the young man, but I thought this was a poignant picture.
I heard the judge say that even though it was a small class in market steers... they were great representatives. (there were four).
There was a storm bearing down on us at this point... and when it hit with a vengeance,
the other classes this morning were cancelled, so... they are making up time today and tomorrow.
This will all be lit up tonight.
Don't look now, but Hedrick's Petting Zoo had a camel... and...
in the tent next to the outside pen, was a baby camel.
I picked Keith up at Davita after the power went out there in the storm... and we stopped at Walgreen's for some things. He is getting around slowly, but surely.
I'm starting to pick the pickling cukes!
I'm going to go get some Mrs. Wages Sweet Pickles mix,
they make such GOOD pickles... and next Wednesday,
we're going to do some canning. (Wednesday morning,
I'll run to the Farmer's Market and get a big sack of cukes).
We had two bouts of hard rain today, but for a short time, and only
got 1/2 inch... but I think that means it will be too wet to cut tomorrow.
Looking forward to Saturday on the mower!
