Yesterday morning we got up and decided to head for Fallon, NV ..about 50 miles from here. Again, everywhere is about 50 miles from here. They were holding their annual Cantalope Festival and Country Fair..so we thought why not? This was a really nice fair, so much better than the Lyon County Fair. Lot's of Cowboys old and young! They even had a cutest little cowboy and cowgirl contest. Now those kids were so darn cute, how could you ever pick the cutest! Glad we weren't judging... 4H, quiltings, food, and vendors. We actually bought a few pictures 8x10, one of a winter scene with a barn that was taken in Chester, CA and hopefully one of about 6 old lanterns that was taken in Bodie. He didn't have a 8x10 but thought he did in the trailer. So they are supposed to mail one. I love old lanterns so this picture I really want!
Well, in talking vendors...there was one called Out West Builders..they had the cutest outbuilding, the one they had was 10 x 16 with a loft and front porch...looks like we'll be purchasing in the next couple of months. This was so impressive! We were going to build one ..well, Ken was going to do the building..but for the $$ and the looks we've decided this is the way to go..spending more of the kids inheritance! I see all kinds of possibilities for this building.
