An afternoon and evening at the Oregon State Fair

This afternoon Joe got off work early and we headed to Salem for the Oregon State Fair. It was a beautiful day
This old Farmall brought back memories for Joe. As a high school kid, living on a farm in North Dakota, he drove one like this

These birds were absolutely beautiful

(As long as they didn't land on MY shoulder)!

Both Joe and I love to watch the action in the horse barn.

This team won first place in the competition

Joe's favorite thing at ANY fair is corn on the cob dripping with butter. And he certainly wasn't disappointed at the Oregon State Fair

This young man, who was showing his sheep at the fair, didn't have a clue we took his picture.  He was out like a light. 


  1. Great day at the fair. Our fair is going on right now also. We love going there also.

  2. Looks like you had a fun day. The wagons and horses are beatiful. That corns looks DElicious!

  3. The young fellow makes that wheelbarrow look pretty comfy. What a great shot!
    Looks like you guys had a great time. We try to take in some of the fall fairs in Ontario and they are great fun. Love the horse shows and the heavy horse pulls. Can't beat it. Enjoy and safe travels.

  4. Oh Joe looks like he's enjoying that corn.

    It must be very tiring both for the animals and the kids that show them. Poor fella. That's a great picture.
