State Fair 2009

I had never been to the State Fair so had a couple of hours today so wandered over to Timonium to see what all the fuss was about.
It was super!
Lots of quilts! Only one familar name. I will definitely have to enter next year.
Lots of junk food....peach sundae for me!
I saw a calf born!
I have only seen that on TV before!
It worked out just fine but a lot of work on her part.
Also saw 14 baby pigs delivered and two baby chicks hatch!
Feathers and scales was there so got some good shots of the owls and hawks and had a great conversation with one of the alpaca breeders!
That is my kind of fun not to mention the people watching and all the free information I picked up about Maryland for people moving here! Just go ahead and ask me a question!

Found a great bargain at Chicos and left the store with a smile. A few minutes later, ran into a friend who has a birthday coming up and she wanted to see my bargain. I made her try it on and she loved my silver purchase too. I ran back to the store and bought her one and gave it to her as an early gift. As I drove away, I realized that it used to take a lot more than $35 to make me feel that good. I remember shopping sprees spending hundreds of dollars at Potomac Mills where Kay and I would fill the car and be as excited as two young ladies could be. Now, many years later, I had the same feeling for $35(spent twice) and I guess this is an addiction when I look at my closets but boy does it feel good!
