Well, I should have known that was more than five minutes. My watch has dropped one of its time markers again, so the hands get stuck, and 5:47 stays 5:35. I got up to write, and I noticed the file I write these posts on had not updated from my other computer; so back and forth a few times, and I thought it was only a few minutes. I was actually surprised it was only a few minutes, but then it wasn't.
I am glad I got the ball rolling again yesterday. It doesn't provide much uf a streak, but we all start somewhere. I wanted to tell you more about our fair day, which we started at 3:30 in the morning. I prayed in Monsey. We were at the fair at 9:38. Admission was free the first day. By the time we were there, there were maybe thirty other cars already there.
This fair was in Chenango County. It's not a big fair, or a particularly prosperous county, but it was the closest of the four available in New York this week. I had wanted to go to all four, but your mother didn't really like the idea. One would be alright, maybe two.
We were too late for the goat milking competition, which started at 7:30. Even if we'd gone straight, we'd gotten out too late. But we did make it to the rabbit competition. It was just so cute. I don't have any idea how many categories rabbits get judged in, but the competition that started at 9:00 was still going strong by the time we got there, and we only left it to see the New York State Gas and Electric demonstration on electrical safety at 10:30. The sum of that was don't touch the damned wires, not even with a kite string.
And there were cows and sheep and flowers and horse races and all sorts of people. In short, it was fun.
But we were done there by about three; so I looked up what else to do in the area, and we found the Norwich Car Museum. It was amazing.
Then we drove home, with many nap stops, and I'm still tired.
