Jon Crispin's Notebook

3 County Fair / Outer Stylie

I went over to Northampton yesterday to catch the end of the 3 County Fair.  My friend Tom Schack’s band Outer Stylie were playing, which was my main reason for going.

Here’s Tom lookin’ good. He is the nicest guy in the world.

I haven’t been to a county fair in a very long time and it was fun to walk around.  This looks like the second place okra winner.

Here’s Henry, a massive Yorkshire Boar.

What a stud!

It is very likely that Henry is responsible for these little guys.

It was very hot and muggy and the ride operators seemed eager to shut things down.  This was the final ride on the Ferris Wheel.  Not quite the London Eye, but still pretty cool.

    Oh those are all great pictures – especially the first one of the flying carousel and the picture of your friend in action – and how could I not mention Henry the stud. I have to share that MY DAD, who is 90 1/2 years old, won the third prize for the green tomato relish competition at the Texas State Fair this fall submitting his mother’s piccalilly recipe from the Depression Era. Go Dad! : )

      Dhyan, amazing. Third prize state-wide is quite an accomplishment. I love English piccalilli. The kind with mustard, gherkins, little bits of cauliflower and pickle. On cheddar cheese. Ooooh. Thanks for following.
