She's Back....



It is fair time again. My goodness the summer shoots by.

Anyway a batch of fat milkers are going off to Puyallup to sit around in tiny little stalls being ogled. One of my daughters is going, so at least there will be one pretty goat there.

Two years ago little orphan Betsy made her debut at the Fair and got her picture on the front page of the paper, and they are still using that picture as part of their official Fair icon.

This year Betsy will go as a milker, along with two of her daughters and two of her granddaughters. She is older now but don't worry, she is still crazy as a bedbug. If I had known this picture would be on the front page of the paper every day of the fair for two years running, I might have tried to teach her a more intelligent expression.

Oh well. Lipstick on a pig.

And just which of your lovely daughters is going? Perchance could it be Betty? There is just no living with Peanut if he finds out his sister is in the limelight again. We await results. By the way, if you withhold the Peanuts until Betty wins, she will try much harder. In the meantime, if you need someplace for the Peanuts to go, well....

Awww, I think Betsy's cute. And I love that she is the official Fair Mascot!! Wish I lived a bit closer - I'd head up to the fair.
