Rule #1: Never make eye contact with the rodeo clown

Last night we went to our local county fair and rodeo. We had great BBQ brisket for dinner.

We saw red ribbon winning Red Heart.

Our across the street neighbor Neil was demo-ing spinning. He informed us that our racoons have been messing with his newly laid sod everynight, eatting the grubs and earthworms for dinner.

We noticed that Famous Jessica won many many many blue ribbons.

It was cancer awareness night at the rodeo. Are you “Tough Enough to Wear Pink”???

West Coast Bureau reporting in.

The lights were already off at the Alpaca Llama display but I was able to take a picture of the goat from Alpha Centauri.

There was even a playground for the kids. Just like at Jessie’s!!

And the rodeo clown? Well someone got picked on last night by the rodeo clown who jumped over the arena railing, up the ‘zoo crew” bleachers to the top where someone (to remain nameless so I’ll just call him KH here) was the butt of the rodeo clown’s jokes about his hair – or lack there of. Numerous times. For the record, not making eye contact with the rodeo clown does not protect you.

    Wait…. Did you go to MY county’s fair? lol I’m pretty sure that the award table looked about the same and that it was Cancer Awareness Night lastnight, with the same slogan…

    I love the horses all dolled up in their pink. The rodeo riders, too. Too bad the Alpha Centaurian goats don’t have pink eyes 🙂

    Wow, some of those pink rodeo fellows could be featured on http://www.cabincove.com‘s asswatch post! WTF with the Red Heart? I love the long draw on your neighbor’s spinning. Someday I hope to learn to spin like that. So Famous Jessica rocks the knitting as well as the spinning… if she wasn’t so nice I could just hate her. (and no, I don’t for any sensitive readers out there who might be offended). Now off to erase the vision of the demonic goat.
