Monday was Ladies' Day!

Monday was Ladies' Day at Michigan's Fowlerville Fair. It's a small town fair about 1.5 hours from my house. I was invited to be a part of it and boy, am I glad. They put on a great Ladies' Day!
The day's hostess was Cindy, the local Homemaker of the Year who was in charge of announcing the new homemaking queen and handing over the crown (don't worry about Cindy, now she's on to her next gig as Michigan Homemaker of the Year. Who knew?).
There were a lot of people there.....

They probably hoped to enjoy that and some door prizes and the free lunch! Or...
maybe they came with the kids to see this guy.....
Or maybe they just wanted to see some of the animals....
But I hope some of them were anxious to see my presentation....

This is where it went down (of course there were a FEW more people at the time, I still haven't mastered the art of snapping photos and talking at the same time). Just a nice setting for events like that.....

I talked about things like this....

And this.....

And shared secrets about things like this....

They "oooh"ed about stuff like this....

And they "ahhhh"ed over things like this....

And nodded their heads over things like this.....

And giggled over things like this....

And they "hmmm"ed over things like this....

And of course, no presentation would be complete without my "Don't be afraid of tools" demonstration.

Overall, I'd say the audience wasn't just great....attentive....engaging....and fun....I'd say they were a bunch of.....

So have you been to any fairs yet this summer?

No summer fairs for me... but I do have an affair (giggle) in October at a farm. I did it last year and it was a great show for me. I aso plan on going to the Bonanza in Minnesota. OH how I wish JMS was doing something around then... I'd surely go while out there. :{.
