Our fall harvest festival, The Franklin County Agricultural Fair, is here again. I had wanted to enter some photography in their annual contest this year, but I always miss the deadline. I also think there’s an entry fee, but I’m sure it’s not that much.
A dear friend gave me entrance tickets, and I’ll bring a sandwich, and my water canteen with me. I don’t need to spend money on any attractions or food. Just seeing so many people I know, and all the fair exhibits, is interesting enough for an afternoon. It’s only a mile away from where I live, so I can even walk there. Having no money doesn’t equal having no fun!
I look forward to seeing all the cows, sheep, goats, chicks, and ducks, and geese… and the surrey with the fringe on top! Oh, sorry, I was in Oklahoma for a minute. Maybe I’ll even find my very own Curly McLain there! I played Ado Annie Carnes in The Country Players‘ 2008 production, and she is a far more interesting character than Laurey Williams is, even though Laurey is one of the main characters. Ado Annie is the comic relief minor character, and it was so much fun to play that role. As long as I don’t meet a Jud Fry at the fair, it’ll be a good day. (I just realized I starting reading the words as I typed them in a mid-western accent.)
Maybe I’ll go around the fair using my Oklahoma accent and then switch to the English Country dialect I used for the Mutton & Mead Medieval Festival! Well, the skies aren’t looking too friendly just now, so I better git while the gittin’s good! Cheers!
