I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee...Psalm 9:verses 1 and 2a

Farmers & Threshermens Jubilee
This natural gas engine was massive and I was impressed that it ran 18 months without shutting down. Wish I could have gotten a better picture of it as a whole, but I opted for video....which Blogger doesn't want to upload. Mom always said 'If wishes were horses, beggars would ride'.
This is the amazing work of a woodcarver who was busy working on his benches while we were there.
This was an old 'bus' fashioned from wood, built around the cab of this vintage car? Inside were two long benches facing each other. I've seen this kind of bus in some vintage movies...haha.
Aren't they something? You should have heard their whistles and seen the steam billowing from their smokestacks. It was exciting!
The horse pulling was cancelled, but these beauties were there. The rain was really heavy today for hours and the roads and paths between exhibits were terrible. Mucky with mud and wet..wet..wet.
Isn't this little girl brave? Wonder what she was checking for??
Homeward bound, after stuffing ourselves with french fries, apple dumpling and lemon meringue pie, wonderful bean soup and 'made on the spot' apple cider. Oh...and cotton candy for the ride home. We were SO glad we went, rain or not.
