This was the view from my front door last night.
JWS looks like he is enjoying going back to his farmer roots.
Even if the tractor is RED.
He is just happily mowing the field across from our house.
Getting ready for the fair.
You see, on Friday and Saturday night of the fair,
this will be a parking lot.
Such a peaceful sight the other 363 days of the year.
But for two nights,
this will be packed full of cars.
And it will be mowed nice and tidy for them.
Found this vintage dish towel the other night on my way home from Indiana.
You see, a trip to the doctor Tuesday afternoon
confirmed what our resident medical assistant, Shawnee
had been telling me all along.
(had to google that to spell it right)
Exercise it and don't quit walking.
Movement is life.
(Shawnee also quotes that regularly)
On my way home from the doctor,
I slipped into
I looked for a website to link here but there is nothing.
I love this place, but don't seem to be able to get there when they are open.
If you are in the area, slide in there and look around,
there is something for everyone.
I started home.
I needed to be home and at the fairgrounds by 6:30.
I had work,
I thought that I had people coming.
I have not had much to eat today and not hardly any water.
I stop at a little store that I have only been at one other time.
I get my water.
A protein bar.
That should fix me up for the rest of the 20+ miles home and into the work evening.
Outside and I look to my right and there is our Fair President and his Fair Secretary wife.
Mr. RK and Mrs. RK.
I roll down the window,
allowing the intense heat in.
"Do you have jumper cables?"
says Mr. RK.
I think that I see Mrs. RK roll her eyes.
They are broke down.
He is having issues.
She had to pick him up at the doctors and leave a vehicle there.
They have a fair meeting at 7.
They are NOT having a good day.
Find a jump.
That doesn't work.
Finally we push the 900 degree vehicle out of the way
I load up Mr. and Mrs. RK
and take them to their house.
(If anyone is counting,
now they have two stranded vehicles.)
It was as if I was
Air Force One.
Air Force Two.
Or that helicopter that takes the President to special meetings.
Where did that protein bar go?
I painted at the fair all evening.
I finished by the light of my headlights.
I'll get pics later of that project.
is consuming what little life we had left.
But a preview of the upcoming giveaway.
I am nearing 500 posts.
That's a lot of talking!
This is going to be part of the giveaway.
Painted on both sides.
Love that turnaround stuff for holidays.
No need to drag stuff out of the attic!
Watch for it.
Just a few more posts.
