All that and more, here in this very entry!

A friend of mine has opened an Etsy store to sell her awesome fabric tote bags. My favorite is the Star Wars one. If you need a tote bag, make this your first stop.

Signups are ongoing over at sshg_giftfest -- there's still space for both authors and artists/crafters so hop on over! I'm thrilled that we have lots of people returning from last year as well as some new faces. Also signups are open at hoggywartyxmas, so start thinking xmassy thoughts!

This past weekend Mr Psmith and I went to the State Fair where we saw, among other things: llamas, sheep, goats (why are their testicles so enormous? why???), adorable baby piglets and monstrous full-grown pigs, and many many flavors of dairy cow including an adorable Jersey calf being raffled off. I wanted to enter but sanity in the form of Mr Psmith prevailed. As always, the food on offer ranged from standard to startling, the latter including a "Gators and Taters" food booth, kangaroo spiedies, and Shark-on-a-Stick. Sadly, we did not get to see the draft horses -- Percherons, Belgians, Friesians, etc. -- which was our main reason for going, as the barn was closed for some reason, drat the luck. But we did get to see the arts and crafts building (quilts! cross-stitch! handmade lace! paintings on sawblades! tiny model rooms!) and the sand sculpture, which is always amazing. One side showed a train going into a tunnel watched by some woodland creatures, including a very alarmed-looking beaver.

My life continues to be far too busy, and sometime between now and the end of September, we have to pack up our entire house. Eek.

There *is* such an expression as "Randy Old Goat".

(Actually, if they're at the fair, then they've been bred on purpose to look that way. Someone obviously thinks they're more ... something...)

"more something" indeed -- I can't quite come up with an apt word...

Seeing pigs at state fairs is one of my favorite things. Seriously.

I've been having internet problems lately and almost missed the hoggywartyxmas sign-ups! Horrors. But I made it in time. Should be a grand time again this year.

Goats are the Greatest Of All Time so of course they got the largest balls of all time. :P Been a while since I've been to a Fair, not many around here so we got to go to the countryside in the USA...or out West or North sometimes in our country. Take care with house packing!
