Forgot my camera, so no pictures. I could have taken some good ones. For instance, this "ChevyNut" guy came rollin in ina "FORD". Then this "GUY" started a big fan, and headed it my way. Cold and rainin. Guess he thought "I", not him, needed cooled off. Then there was this guy that didn't have sense enough to git in outatha rain. Bad show day, but ENTERTAININ. See you guys next year.
P.S.... Now, I also know what a Maytag340 looks like.

fifty is a little laid back, only gets his hair raised over something worse raising it. the 3500 crew cab dually was on the hill hooked to the trailer. the ford was something i just bought for dad, it was cheap, and lady i bought it from would not let me pay here what it was worth. family friend. originally only wanted 500 for it. finally let me pay her 1000.00.
besides, this nut has his 57 chevy at home. bought it in 1979 when i turned 16. still have it, and have driven it from coast to coast and border to border. even towed my trailer with it for almost 10 years.

will have to post a picture of it sometime.

thanks for the field pictures. i didnt get out that way.
here are some more that i did get though.

first picture is the corn box. for those who have not seen one before, filled with corn rather than sand. add some trucks, tractors, and some hidden surprizes, and instant happy youngens.

picture of bean tent and line. cant tell which day i took it, and thumbs were small. not sure how long line was.

there is picture of shingle mills and branding the shingles.
