The Bluegrass Band at the County Fair were one of the better choices of entertainment from recent years. Many remembered the wobbly accordionist from two years ago who got so enthusiastic with his reel dance rendition, he fell off the stage much to the shocked exclaimation of the poor souls he landed on.
Admission was only two pounds, and all proceeds went to the Children’s Hospice charity.
Aunt Mabel had put entries in several of the baking competitions, and was particularly hopeful for her sticky toffee pudding. Last year, her neighbour had beaten her into second place with their Apple Pie so she came home with a blue ribbon rather than the coveted red rosette. This time, she had also entered some crinkle cookies, boasting a secret ingredient known only to herself, a tipple her husband hadn’t missed from his homebrew.
Uncle George on the other hand was getting ready to do his dance routine.
This was a new attraction, and he and the other farmers had been practicing for months. It wasn’t often you had twelve tractors going through their paces to Swan Lake.
As always, there were rides, games, candy floss and a carousel for kids, plus several refreshment tents had been set up to get out of the heat for a well earned cuppa or a pint.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
