Now wait a minute....I LIKE lawn mower racing...and even better? Lawn mower pulling. Some of those mowers have bigger engines and more chrome than some hot rods I know! It's been quite a few years since I actually attended one...but I was rather impressed...boys and their toys...LOL!

Back in the day, we used to George Jones riding the roads on his lawn mower. George has sobered up considerably since then.

Don't forget combine derby! Of course, we don't have such things in Ireland so I enjoy watching your sports like this.

When I was kid (back in the '60s) my Uncle Charles used to build and race stock cars at these shindigs. Good times!

You know you live in the country when a cow escapes the slaughter house and evades capture for several days... Oh wait, that's when you know you're in Cincinnati!

Our county fair is going on right now about a half mile from my home. The truck and tractor pull was last night, big parade and fireworks Monday, Foreigner on Tuesday, Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert on Wednesday, tonight is Warrant and Great White, and the big finale tomorrow with Daughtry. Among some of the events this past weeks has been an American Idol type contest for local singers. We also traditionally have tractor driving competitions, harness racing, as well as the carnival rides and games. Oh, and the livestock showing and auction. Good times....
