In the above picture, Mom is trying to make up with me for leaving me home alone by give my noggin' a nice scratch. She and Dad left bright and early for
The first thing they did was to look for a ham biscuit for Dad but lo and behold look what they found
recently...Jack was frantically looking for his Dad's riblets...
Well Jack we found them they are for sale at the FAIR....
you better high tail it on over before they sale all of them.
Mom told me she nearly cracked up when she saw what they are serving with the riblets.
Mom regained her composure on they went in search of the elusive ham biscuit only to find
a stand selling Krispy Kreme Burgers and Funnel Cakes. The one and only Ms J and Miss Cindi Lou
told us they liked Funnel Cakes. Here is a twofer, Ms. J and Miss Cindi Lou
You two are already pretty darn sweet so eat carefully!!!
Well they finally found the ham biscuit across the way from the Doghouse. They didn't see any dogs in the house but they did find
some hushpuppies at the House of Autry booth. Oh my stars the folks at the booth could hardly
make the hushpuppies fast enough...everyone including Mom and Dad were being piggies.
Mom has lots of friends who are always asking just what is a hushpuppy!! We took this picture especially for
Gizzy's Mom and Raider's Mom. Remember that funny emails you two sent to Mom and Ms. Kit asking your 'Southern Belles' to explain a hushpuppy?
Gizzy's mom described them as looking like 'fat fingers' on her plate!!
After they had their fill of those cute little puppies, they went on to see the prize winning
fruits, veggies and other produce.....such as this blue ribbon watermelon weighing in at 211 lbs.
Thank goodness they did not bring this gigormous grasshopper home.
It is made primarily out of garden hoses but also many other garden tools....
Who knew there was a NC Gourd Society? Certainly not Mom
But she did so love this carved gourd with painted fall leaves on it.
These are the prize winning pumpkins the Mother lode weighed in at 824 lbs....
OMC a sweet 'tater weighing 9.05 lbs....wonder how long it takes to cook?
There was no 'ugliest sweet 'tater' contest BUTT Mom said these guys would have won!!!
Mom said she hoped and prayed no one on this ride ate a Krispy Kreme Burger, or chitlins and collards before they got on this ride!!!
Well to say Mom and Dad had a fine time would be an understatement. The weather was purrfect, they arrived early and were leaving as the crowds were arriving. MOM took 120 pictures so YES there will be more to see. Rest easy she does not intend to share all of them.
over the next week while the Fair is in town.
