Oh, thank you so much!! You know, for years I THOUGHT others hated me—(??!!) but when I went to the Fair, people that I didn't think even knew me, said "Oh, you are here? You had better be careful and not overdo!" I was SHOCKED and PLEASED! Do you reckon that it was MYSELF hating MYSELF instead??!!! Hmmm,,thinkn again!!! Love and Hugs, PR

Good afternoon, Darly! I LOVE your winning smile! I managed to get 5 things to our local Fair this week, so am getting ready to run up and see what results I received. I know that I got a blue on a succulent plant, it had just multiplied all over itself, really neat looking, but some of the others were excellent! The Champion most unusual plant was unlike any I had ever seen and I used to make sure that I entered that class, but because of my shaky health, havent been able to/ so I was thrilled by this plant, had hanging vines with pitcher-looking things hanging UP! I just LOVE the FAIR, so much to learn, and sometimes I even get a purty ribbon! Ha-_PR

Thank you! I am so happy you got a ribbon. I also like fairs but not any around where I am. Happy you are doing what you love.

Where do you live? Our own Harper County Fair is getting slimmer each year as so many don't want to be bothered, and the 4-H clubs have shrunk, not many young folks on the farm like there was when our kids were young, in the 50' and 60's—but
I checked my 5 entries today, a friend of mine had to take some of them up as I had pneumonia—-I received 5 Blues, or Firsts—-no purples, but not smaller ones either so not too bad for a woman who has been out of circulation for a few years! Most of my work was in oil paintings, one on canvas, one on slate (from an old school house) old fashion collage of farm pics of me herding sheep—and a potted plant. Some of the other work was oUTSTANDING!!! I LOVED TO SEE IT!! -And when I got home this eve my temp was down, my chest feels better, and my BS was 100!! WOW, can't beat that!! Ha—-PR

Hey Pat! I am so happy for you winning all the blue!! also for the fact that people did remember you and do care about you!!! I am very happy that when you got home you were feeling better also…keep it up girl!! I live in Ma. and just remembered that there is a huge fair every year in Topsfield. I use to go with a family friend when I was little. It is in the fall I believe.
