My painted gourd took third place at the Kentucky State Fair.
Jim and I spent Thursday at the fair checking out
We saw quilts, clothing, jellies, jams,
pies, cookies, cakes, jewelry,
antiques, crocheted and knitted items,
tomatoes, cabbage, watermelon, and all sorts of produce.
There were baskets, floral arrangements, photography,
drawings, and paintings.
Neither of my paintings scored a ribbon,
but my gourd did.
It had a mountain lake scene on it.
It was a fun day.
I didn't mention the food.
Maybe next time I'll tell you how much ice cream I ate.
But maybe not.
