Last Saturday it was yet again time for our local Mt.Pleasant
one of the major regional shows in the state
camel rides wove their way around the booths
as well as pony rides
side-show alley was a little quiet and looked a little worn
although the children enjoyed the rides
dahlias in the show pavilion were spectacular as were some of
the paintings and farm produce as well as cakes in all categories
my grandson-in-law was a star in sheep shearing, winning the
seniors section as well as coming second in the open against
the top shearers in the state
(grandma-in-law proud as Punch)
and wouldn't you know it?
a lot of bull!
The others were being judged in the background and dwarfed by
this huge beast
though the day was grey and troubled by a cold, gusting wind that
peppered one with flying sand,
a great day was had by all.
