Today was a beautiful fall day, and AdVerb and I both have Mondays off now, so we took advantage of our only chance to head out to the Georgia National Fair in Perry, Georgia. (Click any pic to enlarge it.)
Next up, a visit to the Miller-Murphy-Howard Building to see the fiber arts exhibits. Loyal readers may remember from this post and this one also that I'd been busy this summer finishing up some projects to enter into the competition. Did my efforts pay off? See for yourself. (The second pic looks wonky because the scarf was in a glass case.)
Yes, indeed! All of my overwrought Olympic metaphors served me well. After doing my victory lap around the MMH Building, we continued our tour of the fairgrounds. We encountered many wonderful animals. It's not clear in this photo, but this sheep was being vacuumed (yes, vacuumed) after a shearing. I've often joked that vacuuming the cats would be the most efficient way to groom them, and this pic seems to back up my theory.
Last year I was thwarted in my attempts to pet an alpaca. This year--success! Meet Blue:
This is just a small sampling of the fun times to be had at the fair. Truly, you could spend several days there and not see and do everything. Alas, we only had one afternoon to spend, but we had a great time. The Georgia National Fair runs through October 12. Check it out for yourself if you're in the area, or if not, find a fun fair near you!
