There was live music from the local Melodeon band
And gorgeous cattle
I would have taken this guy home with me. Adorable.
My kids asked if this was the kind of car I drove when I first passed my test.
They got no dinner last night. That'll teach them.
Oh well, I suppose I'd better show the sheep too.
Here are some Texels being judged.
I am only kidding about the sheep. I love them really.
Well, not these white faced ones. But I do love the Big Brother's Blackfaces.
Here are some of them in a pen, waiting to be judged.
And there were Strongman events.
And here's the Maide Leisg
(literally translated: The Lazy Stick)
We even had horses and Indians.
Sadly, I saw no cowboys.
I was glad to speak to one of the volunteers in this tent.
Help for Heroes is a charity set up particularly for servicemen who come back from Iraq and Afghanistan with injuries. They do a great work.
The wee guy bought a gun. Can you believe it? A gun!
He has plenty guns, but this is the only money he spent all day.
Here's the Builder....yes, the Builder...playing at battles with
the wee guy.
What chance do I have??
Don't you love the old tractor, though?
Okay, enough of all that.
Total change of subject:
The girls went off to camp today. I feel lost.
We pray that it would be a time of blessing for their souls. This we want more than anything for them.
I miss them already.
Tomorrow, we'll be a much smaller family, and all our vegetables for tomorrow's dinner is from our own plot.
I don't want to bore you, but isn't that amazing?
It's been a difficult year in the veg plot, but this makes it very worthwhile.
How good God is to us.
Have a blessed weekend.
