Saturday began with a beautiful sunrise and pretty good weather. Ken and Harriet left to take care of the judging duties while we made a stop at a hardware stor. When we arrived at the Cattle Congress grounds, the rain had made a mess of the parking area, which consisted of a grassy field with a mud road. Don had no problem with his four-wheel drive truck, but a little red sedan that followed us in got stuck big time. Don managed to push them out but not without covering his clothes, hair, shoes and face with mud spatters.
While Ken and Harriet did their judging, we checked out the exhibits and enjoyed some fair food. The Hall of Breeds was especially interesting with a variety of rabbits, goats, chickens, cattle and horses, but I lso like many of the commercial exhibits. I have no idea the significance of the the floppy-eared dog driving the car was but he sure was cute.
Late Saturday afternoon, we were getting together a light supper (after corn dogs, tenderloins, fries, etc for lunch) when I heard laughter outside. The beautiful maple behind our site had dropped a lot of its leaves due to rain Friday night and winds on Saturday. Fortunately the park staff hadn't had time to clean them up because five or six kids were having a whee of a time raking them up into a pile with their hands! One guy brought a leaf blower over and helped them out but they did most of it.
Some random thoughts about writing, camping, and eating.
