goin’ up the country

September 18, 2009













hi, friends. instead of flickr faves today, i thought i’d leave you with some shots taken at a country fair over labor day weekend. not pictured above: the 8 (yes, 8!) apple fritters that i ate (in addition to other delicious things).

i’m taking off for some exciting travels and so i am signing off here until the week after next. i should have lots of photos to share then.

i hope your weekend is tops! cheers.

    Oooh…a trip! V. exciting. Hope you have fun!

    I really only want to know how a watermelon can win first prize without being nibbled on a bit? I mean, who is to say it’s not dry and musty inside? Hmmmmm..must investigate further!

    Love the ‘best Sundae’ shot.

    Watermelon is a vegetable? Is this a fruit and vegetable category? Did things change and no one notified me or does everyone just know this and I’m clueless.

  21. September 19, 2009 9:26 pm

    And let me just add that the possibility of me just being clueless is very high. :-)

  22. September 20, 2009 9:32 pm
