The fair…

Well……I went to the town post office in Afton, Wyoming,  to pick up THE (drumroll inserted here) 2010 Lincoln County Fair Rulebook, and found it to be quite lengthy….there are entries for almost everything…..especially for things I don’t do.
If I were entering sheep, for example, there is a rule that most of you probably don’t know….It seems that on page 11 of your manual, it states..”exhibitors will receive ONE warning if they are found lifting or slapping lambs.”. Hmm……this is good information.  I didn’t know that anyone EVER slapped a lamb.  I’m so city-fied….
Did you know that “market goats may have hair up to the hock and knee only”?? AND .. “no poultry with contagious or infectious disease can be entered”?? PHEW!!!!!!  That is such a relief!
I was a little sad to read that “Billy goat classes will not be available”…..
So much to read……..so much to learn……wait…what am I going to wear on ‘judging’ day? Not to be confused with ‘JUDGEMENT’ day…..? Well….this picture is definitely NOT what I will wear….

I will let Daisy Duke keep her “look” and not violate it with my hips and thighs…..trust me…..she/you will thank me.

It’s picture time….

Ok! I hope that I didn’t offend anyone with my version of the story of Ruth and Boaz. It was not my intention and I am sorry if I did. But we are finished with that and on to other matters….like my time at the ranch!
I’ve had to wait until I got to Phoenix to download the oodles of photos that I took. It’s been driving me crazy that I haven’t been able to do this on the iPad……but alas, dear people in Blogville….I will do it now! I even have plans to submit one….. or seven…….. to the 2010 Lincoln County Fair!! WOO HOO!! For those of you that can’t stand the suspense..the judging for ‘pho-togs’, such as myself…obviously…will be on Monday, august 2nd, at 9 am, area 3. Please don’t go to area 4, as I am not entering any crops. So…not to get y’all too built up…the first prize is $5.00 . I already have that cash earmarked so I’m really looking for a first place……place. I really hope that I don’t get 3rd place…since the prize is $1.00. They probably just dig in their pockets and fish out three quarters and some nickels..and a coupon. So…let’s keep our fingerrs crossed!!

This could be an entry.  (p.s….I only take compliments..)   But settle down!  It might NOT be the one………..or seven……….entered.  You just have to be patient…….
