Last Stop in September

Well here we are at the end of another exciting month of September. Next stop, October. All aboard!

It won't be long now until this isn't the only buck we'll see in the bushes.

Prism Escape at Night.

First day of fall in our front yard at 7:23 a.m.

I've taken several pictures of this old barn over the years.

Harmony Fair - Wednesday, 22 September 2010

Egg sandwiches are the order of the day at 8:30 a.m. at the Harmony Fair.

Harmony School students get community service hours or do a paper on the Grange Fair while helping the judges do their job.

After the judging is over, the ribbons are handed out and attached to the winning photographs and art work.

Driving home from Harmony I stopped on Old Miller Road to get this field of goldenrod and the changing trees. Turning it into an ad for Pennsylvania was a last minute idea.

Harmony Fair - Friday, 24 September 2010

Canned goods filled the shelves at the Harmony Fair.

In this building alone there were over 2,800 entries.

It wasn't until I started to put this week's blog together that I realized David Morgan of Northern Cambria won the first place for the best scarecrow. He won that award last year as well.

Almost every stall in the animal barn was decorated and a few of the horses had an additional food source.

Small town photography don't get much better than this.

Step Right Up!
Get the ping pong ball in the jar and win a gold fish.

I'll finish out the Harmony Fair with some shots taken at the truck and tractor pulling track which is right across the road across from the fair grounds.

This is my first Cadillac at a pulling event.

The track rumor mill had the story that this puller hit a deer on his way to the fair grounds. Some say the truck looked like this when he got it as a graduation gift.

Jimmy just out having a lot of fun on a Friday night.

Keeping an eye on the program the track announcer and the statistician make sure that the contest is running smoothly.

She runs what she brung.

Diesel-powered, big, bad and real yellow.

This is your brain on sunflower seeds.

Sunflower Seeds.

Unfortunately, it's about time to put this little lady away for the winter. I made this about 20 years ago and it doesn't look too bad for it's age. Wish I could say the same about myself!

This is a baby spider growing on one of the spider plants that need to come in the house for the winter.
