Miah decorates his pig cookies. Later he earned a blue ribbon for them. Miah with Fred, his scarecrow, then both boys with Bill, Jarrod's scarecrow. Neither of the scarecrows won ribbons but we had a lot of fun creating them. You can't tell from the picture, but Miah's had poker cards tucked in his hat, pants and sleeves - including five aces.
The boys favorite midway ride.
Miah poses with his swordfish that won a blue ribbon.

Looks like you had a lot of fun. I can't believe how big the boys are getting.

Hi from "over the Pond" - Liverpool, England. I got the link to your blog from Linda Martin's Writing Festival on Fridays site, which looks interesting! I'm still in the process of building my personal website, but I hope to have it up soon. Reading your blog reminded me of the only time I've attended a country fair in the US, one summer when I worked at a Scout Camp [Curtis S. Reid] in NY state after my freshman year at University. Happy Days!! That was the summer when Simon & Garfunkel played their famous concert in Central Park - and I was GIVEN a free ticket as a "Thank You" for the work I did through the summer!

Now I have to see if I can find something interesting to post on Linda's site .....

How wonderful. It looks like the boys had a lot of fun and that is the important thing.

The boys definitely deserved to win a prize for that splendid scarecrow.

Heartiest congrats to you for the interview on Linda Martin's site. That is a lovely photo of you, my friend!
