Fall Fair 2015

Fall Fair fell on Friday and Saturday of last week. On Friday, wife and daughter arranged displays and helped the judges in the baking section. On Saturday, I kept an eye on our Ministerial’s table for most of the day other than my time at the main gate selling tickets.

The weather was sunny but not too hot. Neither the animals nor the parents of small children were stressed. There was a pretty good turnout. There were plenty of entries in most of the classes, so there were things to see.

Our entries this year did quite well.

My wife got firsts for her bread machine white and brown loaves, and a second for her counted cross stitch.

My daughter got a first for her apple upside down cake, a second for her chocolate cake, and a second for a necklace.

I got a first for my hot dog relish and a third for my plain tea biscuits (I use the scone recipe from the Glasgow Cookery Book).

About Tweed and Briar

I am the pastor of a rather conservative rural congregation. My interests alongside of work are hunting, fly fishing, cooking, and life in an agricultural community. By way of family, I have a wife and two children: a daughter and a son. I am of indeterminate age because my wife is a bit younger than I am and my son is ages with some of my friends’ grandchildren. However, to say that I slip smoothly among the generations would imply an agility which I no longer possess. I aspire to the genteel poverty of the country manse.
