My daughter & I had a good time at the State Fair. The weather was cooperative & there were lots of things to see & do.
The baby duck slide is always a popular attraction.
I'm not sure if this guy was a pigeon or a dove, but I was fascinated with his long legs & big, poofed out chest.
I'm officially in love with the colors in this chicken. Browns, golds and blues. I must find yarn to match! I MUST!
A rattlesnake handler. The guy had four or five Rubbermaid tubs full of rattlesnakes & while handling them, he'd let them crawl along his handling stick to within just a few inches of his hand before he'd rearrange them. Ugh! Gives me the willies just to type about it.
The goats were playing king of the mountain. I like the way that chicken is peeking into the photo. I didn't notice it there when I took the photo.
My woolly friend. This particular sheep was very friendly. He came right over to us as soon as we stepped near his pen & he licked & nibbled my fingers while we admired him & his friends.
I was a disappointed with the lack of knitting displayed but I loved this basket. I'm not sure what the display was for exactly, but who wouldn't love a basket with an in-progress sweater & yarn, a bottle of vodka & a giant container of headache pills. I know I could have used that basket when I got home from the fair! Yesterday's comment about hoping I didn't jinx the scarf.... Well, you know how that went. I spent over two hours last night knitting & tinking four rows on that blasted scarf. I desperately needed vodka & a giant bottle of Excedrin.
Of course the fair offered tons of fried foods. I didn't try any deep fried Kool-Aid or a Krispy Creme burger or sloppy joe, but I could have.
And of course, the lights. I absolutely love the lights at the fair.
