On our day off last week we joined the school as they went to the Georgia National Fair up the road in Perry, GA. Along with all of the “fair food” ~ funnel cake, sausage sandwiches, gyros, and Philly Cheese Steaks (now that’s a scary thought ) ~ we got to see cows and horses and bunnies and llamas and pigs and chickens and sheep and sheep dogs herding sheep. We also were delighted by the wonderful competitive displays – cooking, photography, flowers, crafts and beautiful quilts. The day was crisp and clear – it felt more like Vermont than Southern Georgia! It was fun to share part of the day with the “kids” and we were glad to have “gone to the fair”.
Guess I was in Quilt Heaven here!

Just me and a couple of calves….
We finished the day with a trip to Jack’s Old South BBQ – one of the big winners of the 2004 Big Pig Jig Best BBQ award (among the other quadzillion trophies in the restaurant!). I’m not much of a BBQ connoisseur, but it tasted pretty good to me!
