Another hectic week in.
The theme for this one is
Three Little Pigs
Pork Fat Rules
How many gun raffles can you attend in one month?
Two gun raffles would be enough for one lifetime for me.
Let alone, two in a month.
Back to last Saturday,
John attends this huge,
how can you get any more redneck,
He looks forward to it like Christmas.
He asked me to go this year.
Reluctantly, I said yes.
I mean after all,
He has endured
It's only one day.
How bad can it be?
It was bad.
sitting in a traffic jam for hours,
twelve hour layover in airport without your cell phone,
stuck in an elevator with smelly people
kind of bad.
I looked for the fun.
Really, I did.
It just wasn't there.
And then the food.
Three types of pork.
All excellent, mind you.
Two types of cabbage,
Sauerkraut and Coleslaw
Anyone want to venture what that menu does to your gastric system?
With only Port-A-Johns?
So I asked for the keys to the truck.
JWS informed me that he had a really good parking place.
Keys in hand and five feet away, I told him.
"You are about to lose that!"
I went shopping.
To places that have real bathrooms.
Shelby is having us for dinner for Mother's Day.
We sit down to eat.
I tell her
"It is very interesting that you managed to have BACON in THREE of your dishes!"
Bacon Wrapped Wild Turkey Skewers
Baked Beans with Bacon.
Three more little pigs.
The Dayton Fair Gun Raffle
John is a manager.
We say Fair Father.
Which somehow makes me a Fair Mother, I think.
It left me serving food.
Any guesses on the menu?
Among other things.
Three More Little Pigs.
Back to the fairgrounds to check things and pick up an extension cord we had left there
Dirty Roasters everywhere.
Another day spent with PIG,
I think we'll have chicken at our house this week.
The Rest of the Week.
Not in any particular order.
5K at the Armstrong County Memorial Hospital
This is my medal
Third in my age group!
I initially thought that maybe there were only three in my age group but to my surprise,
there were quite a few.
Last Saturday, leave the gun raffle, purchases.
I found these handkerchiefs.
I think I am going to stitch them to these pillows.
Yesterday's yard sale purchases on the way home from the 5K.
Lots of bowls and plates to paint.
Another painting done.
And a bowl finished.
And these little bowl filler owls.
Easy and fun to make.
Watch for a tutorial coming soon!
