You Don't See This Everyday
I spent a good part of the day yesterday at the New Plymouth Country Fair where Lora was working a food booth to raise funds for musical instrument scholarships. I spent the entire time watching the hog judging, along with most of the folks there, as it was the major draw. I was fascinated as this guy judged ten pigs at a time, awarding blue and red ribbons, and made comments on each pig and why he was ranking them the way he did. Hundreds of pigs, ten at a time according to weight class. There is a whole terminology I didn't know existed! On a good note, I did find out I wasn't fat - I'm overdeveloped! I have to load some software onto Bren's computer so I can get pictures off my cell phone and will post some pictures from the fair shortly.
