I am caught up once again! The tulips are so very pretty. You should be used walking in cow pies by now. I love all the animals! We always see different things from you!

I also used to prefer the more traditional displays. Obviously the horses... showing, jumping, harness, whatever was going... Aside from that I used to love watching the sheepdog trials and agility. And the cakes are always amazing! I do love a nice decorated cake! And the photography... You should enter next year's PIO Oh, and the dairy pavilion for the free samples, although it was ALWAYS packed!

Love your animal pics, especially the cute little kitties! The Bengal is very handsome.
Did you win any of the comps?

I've seen pictures of the state fairs and I figure this was equivalent. And yes, I think Marilyn would love the quilts too.

Folks....for anyone interested.

Turns out that I have a rather unexpected trip to California next month. Backstory and PTR can be found here (or in my siggie below); Quick links are in the second post of the thread.

Hope to see you there.

Where on earth did that first 50,000 go?



With this post, I have hit the milestone of 50,000 posts.

When I first de-lurked off the Dis and became a member all of two and the half years ago, I would never have imagined that I would hit 50K posts.

Those of you that have hung out with me for a while will know that I like to do some accounting around these these mill....er....milestones.

So, assuming that there was a minimum of 40 seconds between each post....

I have accumulated the following numbers:
  • 50,000 posts, which if I assume the 40 second rule, amounts to a minimum of
  • 2,000,000 seconds spent on the Dis, which translates to
  • 33,333 minutes, which translates to
  • 555 hours...or rather...
  • 23 days


That's a lot of time Dis-sing.....but still not quite a full month of Sundays....yet.

That's assuming you didn't spend any time creating those posts or reading them!

Let's just pretend I didn't.


Otherwise, that time count could well be at infinity and beyond!
