Delaware State Fair, 2007
7/23/2007 6:17:00 PM

Here's our pictorial trip to this year's Delaware State Fair...

For those of you not familiar with it, the Delaware State Fair is held annually in Harrington.  Harrington is about 70 minutes south of Wilmington, in the center of "farm country".  The fair is primarily agricultural, with more animals that you'll be willing to visit.  Here are a few of the more interesting pictures this year:

Yes, they have a "Goat Department".  It's an entire building (about the size of an aircraft hangar) where people show off their goats.  Hundreds of them.  Apparently, goats make pretty good pets.  The pygmy variety aren't very large, and (so I'm told) get along with dogs pretty well.

This is why you don't give rednecks money.

This is the biggest and baddest mower that John Deere makes... It's got a 15' (yes, fifteen foot) cutting width.  It's really a remarkable piece of equipment; so I always take a picture of it.

Where, except a state fair, can one acquire a deep fried pickle?  Although the concept of frying a pickle does intrigue me,  I have not sampled one as yet.

This six-day-old calf was being raffled off to support the 4-H club.  I don't know why Jessawick insisted that we enter a drawing for a bovine, but she did.  We proudly hold two chances to win this fine animal.  We'll know next week if we need to buy another pet bed.  I hope it likes small dogs.

Great choices!! Don't the goat's hooves nick-up the floors? I think our landscaper, Dave Chapman, would like a look at the lawn mower, and, of course, Carter Davidson is wild about anything John Deere. I would like a deep-fried pickle. And, where but ... ? How true. Does PA have a state fair? LOVE U!
