This week, the local county fair is going on. When I was pregnant with my son, I was on bed rest. The TV became a good friend of mine. I remember watching this old episode of Andy Griffin. Aunt Bea was in a dither over her pies that she was baking for the county fair. I remember thinking what neat thing to do,so nostalgic.
Growing up in the South, I have always heard people talking about entering this or that in the fair. Back years ago, it was the thing to do. It was also a great source of pride to local farmers showing their produce or housewife's showing off their baking skills.
I had never entered anything in the fair before. So I made it a personal goal to enter something in the fair. The first year, I won 3 ribbons! This year, I entered 6 items in the crafts category and only 2 in the domestic arts. I am very far from a domestic goodness, so I am very proud when I win a food ribbon.
My family and I have not had the opportunity to go to the fair. It is driving me crazy because I want to know if I won anything this year!! I will know in a few days I guess, I will keep you posted
