Clinton County Fair today! We got a whopping .05 inch of rain here! The cooler weather is really appreciated though.
I missed a chance and showing you a funny video today. We watched Madison show her first chicken and it was the funniest thing you ever saw. I have never seen a child smile so much, scratch so much, pet a chicken that way, all the way to second place in her class. The judged raved about the kids all day and said it was the only show he remembers with no bruised wings on the chickens and nearly perfect finish on every bird.
It was fun to watch Madison and Brynn show their hogs yesterday and today. They did a great job, as well as all of the kids. It was pleasurable to watch every class. We finally had weather fit to be out in after two weeks of heat!
I was sorry for LuAnn yesterday as her pictures didn't garner many ribbons and I thought they were as good as ever with some really outstanding shots. No one could figure out what in the world the judge was looking for. They did pick some good winners but there were so many as good or better. Some winners just made you say to yourself, what were they thinking?
I quickly found the best buy on the grounds at a new vendor, Sue-Terre's Concessions from Stoutsville, Ohio near Circlville. 32 ounces of iced Lipton tea for a buck. What a deal! I had a half a gallon at lunch, whoops!
I broke down and got a shot of cortisone in my elbow this morning. I have just been in too much pain. It's pretty bad when it hurts so badly the needle feels good going in! I start my Occupational Therapy Friday and getting a leg test Wednesday so it's back to the docs again.
I need to get fit for all these county fairs and consulting jobs coming up. There is much walking and standing to be done this month and I have swelling in both legs. Right now I am going to enjoy some barbecue chicken cooked with Chevetta's famous sauce with fresh sweet corn and potato salad!
