Well, the Kiowa County Fair has come and gone for another year. It was a good fair and there were more exhibits than last year. The weather was ideal - not too hot and not too cold. A large crowd was in attendance Friday and Saturday. The parade was great, and the car show was well attended. The Plainview student council members along with a couple of helpers from Eads ran the game booths both days and they were a big hit with the kids.
All of our hard work paid off with several champions and reserve champions. I spent most of today making pickled beets and freezing zucchini from the produce we didn't take to the fair to show.
Ronnie Weber is here visiting his folks, Denis and Theresa Weber, this week. They attended the fair Friday, and then Connie Weber came to spend the weekend visiting with her folks and her brothers, Ronnie and Jerry.
Susan Greenfield's dad, Norm, and her brother, Jon, and his wife, Sonya, of Sterling came to visit over the weekend and attended the fair with Susan Saturday.
It is a busy time of the year and several farmers were absent from the fair due to wheat drilling. It's so nice to have the moisture at this time of year.
