A Little Bit of Yee-Haw

August 19th, 2007

Casey and I have returned from our trip out to the Clarke County Fair to see Rodney Atkins.   We sat in the front row, about 3 feet from him, in that tiny county venue.   No doubt a few years from now, he’ll be so big we’ll pay 100s of dollars to sit within a football field distance from him, but for now, it was the best county music experience 25 bucks and a fair entrance  ticket can buy.   The concert ROCKED.   We even got a guitar pick that he flung into the audience.   There were rednecks and local-yokels, soccer moms and farmers, and even the winner of the Miss Clarke County pageant on hand, and we were screaming and stomping with the rest of them.   The only thing missing was Kenny, shaking his booty and singing along, but we’ll take him someday, when his eardrums are less fragile, and he stays up past 7 o’clock.

As for the rest of the experience, here is an account in pictures…

Arriving at the fair, we checked out the agriculture exhibit…

 Checked out the fairway…


Played some “Guess the age” games with a seasoned carnival barker…


Checked out the livestock…  


…and won a stuffed monkey to take home to Kenny…  aug-16-036.jpg

We had a great time, and definitely have to take  Kenny to a county fair next summer.   We love you Rodney!

    Hey guys – aren’t fairs the greatest? We are coming up on ours in September, and I can’t wait for the giant turkey leg, corn on the cob, green chile cheeseburgers and some fat fried Twinkie or other disgusting dessert!! I also like to look at all the rabbits and other critters, and there’s always a diving pig or two. Rock on!
