Yesterday, Molly and I went to the Delaware County Fair. It was the first time we'd been to this county fair, and we enjoyed ourselves. We checked out a lot of animals: chickens, ducks, turkeys, rabbits, sheep, horses, cows, goats, llamas, alpacas, donkeys, miniature horses, etc. We also visited the arts and crafts building and the commercial buildings, and we watched a few of the horse races. Molly's favorite things to see were the goats, like she raised in 4-H. My favorite animals to see were the alpacas. I think they are very cute and their wool is soft and fluff (great for a spinster like me). Plus alpacas (and llamas) hum!! So wonderful!

Two alpacas
These two seemed like a younger one and an older one, perhaps mother and child. The one in front was the smaller one.

As we were leaving the fair grounds, we decided to walk through the dairy barn and see those cows. We were so glad we did, because this is what we saw:

Cows named Jenny and Molly

Right next to each other are cows named Jenny and Molly. It was too funny! The owner of the cows took pictures of us with the cows.

If you get a chance to visit a local fair, I recommend it. It can be a lot of fun.

Another recent event was buying a new cage for our gerbil, Rosie. She had chewed up all the plastic parts of her previous cage. She chewed up the shelves, she chewed on the cage bars, she chewed on the harder plastic tubes, she chewed on her wooden house, she chewed the running wheel off the axle and then she chewed up the wheel, she even was chewing up her food dish until we replaced it with a ceramic one. Gerbils chew a lot! You can see Rosie in her first cage here. This is her new home. She really seems to like the two and a half levels, more space, and new things to chew on!

Last night we had a Joan-a-thon, which meant we watched one whole episode of Joan of Arcadia, which is about how many we can handle at once. We've been getting the disks from blockbuster but are slow to watch them. The episodes are so heavy and depressing sometimes. So we watched one episode and then watched an Ellen DeGeneres comedy special, which made us feel much better :)

Tuesday we went to The Ohio State Fair. I'd never been to a state fair before, and this one was pretty cool. We saw lots of horses (the big ones), some sheep, some cows, a few chickens, two dogs, and one cat. We saw a new born calf and chicks and ducklings. They have a section of Ohio wildlife where we saw native trees, two owls, an eagle, a kestrel, a hawk, a crow, three beavers, an otter, a fox, a badger, a bobcat :), some geese, some ducks, three swans, and a few other animals. There really weren't that many livestock animals around. We watched a horse show, until the organ music started driving us crazy. Ohio is big on horses. They have horse shows all day long. We got there late in the afternoon and stayed until the fireworks which was after 10. We ate fair food and saw the sights. We walked through one of the commercial buildings and tried an electronic pulse gadget on my sore shoulder. It helped me relax, but didn't do much for the pain. There was lots to see and we had a lot of fun.

I worked yesterday, and I work again today. And tomorrow. Then Saturday we are going on a field trip! And we might rearrange the bedroom after Michela gets back from the vet tonight. And I'll finish my trip story sometime, hopefully before I forget :)

Have a good day!
