Country Fair & Cameras

My daughter, Andie, and I had a great Saturday morning this past weekend. We went to the Sedalia Country Fair in Big Island, Virginia. While there, we met up with Lara and Linda, spinners extraordinaire, who kindly gave more spinning lessons and tips.


We saw sheep, alpaca, draft horses, and a variety of large and small farm animals. I had no clue that there exists such a variety of chickens (not just Tyson, Perdue et al). We both laughed at our ignorance - - you can take the girls out of the city, but it takes a while to get the city out of the girls.


I had a ton of terrific pictures of homemade soaps and honey, baby rabbits and dogs working sheep. Then, this happened....


No, that's not my camera, but when it broke, it looked a lot like the above camera. I'm going to be pictureless for a bit. The Fair photos were taken by Jim, Linda's husband, who was nice enough to let me borrow them for the blog. Thanks Jim!

OH NO! A broken camera is a sad, sad thing!

The fair sounds fun, though.

The dread "blue-tongue" disease has arrived in the U.K .It affects ruminants and I am scared for all the sheep , goats , Alpacas etc . It's lovely to see your daughter having such a lovely time with you. If I tried to take Holly to a craft event she'd hit me with her handbag .She does love art though and embroidery .Sorry about your camera. I still use an optical camera . The scanner is great for posting .

That sucks! I think my camera's warranty has expired, it certainly doesn't want to work. So I understand your pain. Here's to both of us getting new ones quick!
