My gourd took third place


My painted gourd took third place at the Kentucky State Fair.

Jim and I spent Thursday at the fair checking out 
dairy cattle,
dairy goats,
chickens,
pigeons,
and
Jim's favorite
Rabbits.

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.
