Hard to believe it's only a week away.This is a wonderful show featuring something for everyone. I've stated in the past that you need not worry about a warm July day as the show grounds are very well shaded. If the numerous trees don't provide enough relief, you can head to the air conditioned auditorium and enjoy a bite to eat and some hand dipped ice cream. See you at the show.
Dan, please save us some room with your family. Thanks.

I just wanted to add the club's web address if folks want more info.
www.mengesmillssteam.com This has been causing me some problems so you may have to copy and paste the address to get to their site.

Just got home from a rather warm day at the show. Some folks were content to sit all day in the shade but I sought relief a couple of times in the auditorium. George took pictures soon after we arrived this morning but had to leave about three so I took pictures of everything that went through the parade. It was a total of 272 pictures that George will soon post in the gallery.
I do have several pictures to share of a first time thing at the show and the first one I ever saw in person. It's a carousel powered by Molly the mule. Molly is twenty years old and has been doing this for eight years. We also wanted video to show it in action but when we went after lunch, all the youngsters were at the candy scramble. So I paid to ride and George took video of just me riding. When he has time to post this, I am the one wearing the red cap and Molly is the one with the long ears.
