Do you remember back in the 70s when I promised to post pictures of the 4-H County Fair? At long last, here they are.
Now why in the interwebs would this possibly be a pinnacle in our lives? Easy -- we live in the middle of four gajillion people, most of whom think animals come in the form of pigeon, squirrel and ferret, which happens to be a bizarre designer hybrid of pigeon and squirrel designed to make single women and strange comic-book memorizing apartment dwelling men in their 20s happy.
And why must I insist, even after all this time, taking up your precious blog reading "coffee break" to post pictures of basically a giant barnyard? Also easy -- my kid's in them. And he's freaking adorable, dude. Especially in the cowboy hat, especially since he actually looks natural amongst the fur and the feathers and the yee-hawing. Maybe that boy ain't so city after all, y'allses.
So indulge along with me, friends. I give you the County Fair:
He told me if he wore his cowboy hat someone might let him drive one of the tractors. OK, maybe he didn't drive the tractors, but at least he got his ride on.

Cook & Belle, the band that played (you must check out their website). They were (gulp) good. Seriously, they rocked those four grannies in the front row for hours. We had so much fun watching them, especially their son Seth who, right there in the main 4-H digs, filled up the place with his It Factor. Stop laughing. He was good. And Lil E...
Lil E could only muster a nod. See? All that American Idoling in the living room with baseball tees as microphone stands and golf clubs as guitars really does speak to his big soul.
Post fair exhaustion in the hammock.
