The Durham Fair

Mom and dad went to the Durham Fair on Friday night without us.  It's only faire since we get to go out to dindin with them all the time, right?  NOT!

Mom made sure when she got home that she told us everything that we missed out on!
These two antique homes just happen to be right at the entrance to the fairgrounds~
Dad was enjoying his baked potato with all of the good stuff on it when mom spotted this black and tan goat! She had the nerve to compare him to Mitch!
She also spotted this stroller and wished that it could be me riding inside!  I wish it could have been too, mom!
hummmmmmm - this family looks like they're having a serious discussion.  Maybe they're deciding that I really do need that stroller!
Mom was admiring this beautiful painting on the cello.  How creative!
And check out someone's collection of mooses~
That's a lot of mooses!
Mom even spotted a moose quilt!
And she so wanted to take this vege quilt home with her!  How beautiful!
Look what else she spotted. Granny squares!
And we had to hear about all of the food!
Tons of apples~
And check out the size of those carrots~
And she even saw a pumpkin disguised as a candied apple!
And she loved this flower arrangement with the Durham Fair theme~
And dad chatted with the blacksmith.
What works of art these tractor seats are!
Somehow they don't look very comfy though.
We heard all about dad's egg sandwich~
And the fries that mom and dad shared. 
Hey Norwood!  This one's for you, buddy!
Mom and dad were gone for FOUR hours and they said they had a blast! How could they have so much fun without us?
Maybe we'll get to go along next year  *sigh*

So until next time..................

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Princess Patches said...

OMD! What fun your peeps had! The stroller looks like it was made just for you, Maggie! (And it kind of resembles Sunshade's)!

Our mom has always enjoyed fairs, but our dad would never go. When he was a kid, it was his job to "show" the farm animals so he had to spend the whole week at the fairs. He'd had enough! We have a county fair coming up in Oct. and Mom's hoping to get someone to go with her!

Mack said...

Sorry you two missed out.

OOOOHHHH....WE LOVE the Durham Fair. Entire buildings full of...Rabbits! Ox-pulls! Draft horses the size of the Empire State Building! Maybe we can sneak off with you guys while the folks are there...we'll impersonate some goats and get lots of attention.

That sure looks like fun! And I hope you two get to go next time. Mom loved seeing that granny square afghan because her granny made one for her when she was younger. She said thanks for the memory.

Our Mom is always envious when she sees what fun your peeps have at the fair - and if French Fries are involved she knows she would love it.

What is it with the humans? Always leaving us canines at home...Hope they at least brought back a treat for the two of you. Some apples perhaps?

Hi Maggie and Mitch,

That's so un-fair you didn't get to go to the fair, so I hope they brought some food home for you both!

From your mum's photos my mum can almost imagine being there.


TwoSpecialWires said...

It's posts like this that make Moma sigh and wish we lived closer. Then she gets that dreamy look in her eyes. What a fun time we could all have. Just imagine.

In the meantime, we're hoping the postal mail is quick and efficient! Moma told us about the welliedebobical.
Or whatever.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh noooo.. seems like they had a lot of fun without you! The fair looks like so muh fun.. hope you get to go with them next year.

(Did they bring back any goodies for you??)

Unknown said...

Hey MandM
NO fair should be the title of this post. Uggh. Mom even had the nerve to post pics of the foodables consumed. Geesh and they even had a fog bog! Wow.. I say protest is required pronto. They broke your collective bargaining agreement.
PS- thank u for thinking of me- my days left with froggies are numbered I'm afraid

animal lover, quilt lover said...

What fun Mom and Dad had at the fair. It is good to have fun everyonce in a while.
Bambi eating the cat food proves that you can't go off your diet even once!!!!!!! Not once!!!
Every thing you put in your body counts!! We start again.
XXOO, Bambi & Fern
