Kimberton Fair - Jessie and James

Jessie and James were at the Kimberton Fair. James and the mutts entertained the crowd with a display of their frisbee skills.

Jessie and James asked for a small girl to assist them with the next act. While the girl stood still Jessie and James threw juggling pins in front of and behind the girl. It looked like they might strike the girl at any moment but I'm happy to report no one was injured.

James asked for another volunteer and this young lady rode on James shoulders while he rode a unicycle. The girl grabbed a hold of James head placing one hand over each eye making him sight impaired. It wasn't part of the act but it was hilarious.

Check out the web site for their schedule and go see Jessie and James.

Kimberton Fair - steel wheel

This photo of a tractors steel wheel shows the damage this wheel does to the ground. I wonder how the farmer gets the tractor from one field to other field without damaging the roads?

Kimberton Fair - pie eating contest

This young lady didn't win the pie eating contest but her hair was the same color as the blueberry pie, that should count for something.

I want to know why the Kimberton fair placed the contestants on a platform 8 feet above the ground? No one could could tell who was winning or take any photos of the contestants. How about next year if the contest is held at ground level?

Kimberton Fair - sheep

I was at the Kimberton fair and witnessed the sheep getting ready for judging. This sheep asked that I not mention her name so lets just refer to her as number 0601.

Malvern Fair - Ferris Wheel

Is the ferris wheel everyones first ride that takes you up high? I don't know why anyone rides this ride, it takes forever to load and unload the people so it seldom makes a revolution without stopping. Boring!

Japanese Beetle

The Japanese beetles are back! Last year the Japanese beetles attacked the Harry Lauder Walking Stick which died from the attack. I do not see as many Japanese beetles this year but I put out another trap just to try and keep the population in check.

I don't understand why the beetles destroy an entire leaf before moving on to the next leaf. Does anyone have an explanation?

Happy Birthday Mom
