A busy summer turned into an even busier fall and I've hardly had time to post anything here. While sorting my files I came up with these pictures from Mt. Carroll County Fair last August. There are something in County Fairs that appeal to me and I try to visit at least one every year. When the world seems to be drowning in mental garbage I find it comforting to find nooks of sanity and old fashioned values.

The 4 H kids were displaying their best work on growing vegetables and flowers, making table arrangements and crafts.And then there is the demolition derby. I don't know if my attraction to demo derby is in line with the good clean fun I am after, but I just find it very amusing. Rock on, boys! But the best part of the County Fair is the people.
