Pitt County Fair


The bitter with the sweet: While looking at baby pigs (so cute) Tyler informed me I could never have a pet pig. I think I can wear him down if I keep showing him how cute they are in this picture. We also toured the village of yesteryear. While in in the school room my husband quickly found himself in trouble in the corner. (No, he has not joined an extremist group since the move). Our friends Steve and Marina also found a seat in the schoolroom.




Tyler and I were not so proud of our shooting. Maybe the best part of the fair can never be understood when explained. You would just have to see it it: Chicken Man. Chicken tamer/Christian motivational speaker. He compared Jesus to a fuzzy white chicken he put in a pot labeled 'chicken stew.' He also wrote and performed a rap about Jesus and chickens. Very interesting ...

Only in NC will you find a Chicken Man preaching about Jesus. Aren't you so glad you moved here to partake of this southern culture. Even if you aren't, I am glad that you are here!! I love the fair pics!!

It took me a while to get the whole extremist group thing; but when I did, I couldn't stop laughing...
