fair weather

We wait for it all year long. Folks take out loans to attend. Its a vital part of the Roctober events at our house:

The Cleveland County Fair

Most folks go to the fair several times during the blessed week that its in town. Sadly, I was only able to make it last Wednesday night. We met up with some of our friends from Gardner-Webb to celebrate, ride some scarily built rides, cheer on the pig races and eat ourselves silly (roasted corn, elephant ears, turkey legs and fried oreos of course!)

Spencer and Josh
because nothing says The Fair (or Fred Flintstone) quite like a giant turkey leg

Amy and I at the pig races
yes, it was an actual pig race
yes, our hats say "Pigs go best with Texas Pete"
yes, the race was sponsored by Alston Bridges BBQ
only in Shelby, folks!

speaking of pig my neighbor is competing in a BBQ fest competition in Shelby in a couple of weeks. He said you guys should go and he would feed you!!! It is some really good BBQ. His BBQ is Appalachian Smoke.
