Fair (haha get it fair) Warning: This
chic girl old women will be wearing shorts and boots in the cattle barn!
Who do I have left to impress - I am 41, married, given birth 3 times - no one is really looking my direction anyway!
Boots: the mere thought of wearing flip-flops just makes me shutter (believe it or not it doesn't have anything to do with the manure) it is the dust, gritty dirt and mud on my feet that just makes me feel dirty all day and tennis shoes work if you don't have to wash or it is not raining - wet socks and shoes, well just don't get me started. And last but not least is having your foot stepped on by a cow - hurts in boots, hurts worse in any other footwear!
Jeans VS. Shorts: if it is going to be 100 degrees well my biggest issue there is "restroom breaks" - 100 degrees outside, 200 degrees in the fairground restroom, hot sweaty me in jeans well let's just say I try not to drink much so I don't have to go much. We do have air conditioned Scott Hall in a drastic situation!
I won't lie - it won't be pretty, but quite frankly I don't care! I work in shorts and boots around here a lot but I do try to look respectable at the fair:
3 1/2 days now - photography projects done! But I am getting ready to head to town to track down any one of our beautiful, loving, friendly 4-H leaders to sign paperwork that wasn't done last night - hope none of them read this before I find them so they don't have time to hide!!!!!!
