I don't quite have the time I need to finish my blog-writing just now, and I'm way behind current on my photos, so I'm going to fill out the rest of this week with photo entries. I hope you like. I liked taking them and curating them and all that. Now let's go back to last August (see, I told you I was running behind) and the Calhoun County Fair!

SAM_6090.jpg

Cattle barn at the Calhoun County Fair. [profile] bunny_hugger's father was interested in petting all the cattle, especially if there were a sign asking people not to touch them.


SAM_6107.jpg

``Can I help you?'' Horse more interested in my camera than I was of him, really, but I'm really happy with how the picture turned out.


SAM_6119.jpg

Sheep wearing their slickest, most skintight pajamas in the middle of the day. I've rarely so wanted to just roll around on a pile of sheep so much as their shorn skin inspired me to ponder.


SAM_6124.jpg

Show rabbit beating the heat by sublimating into a cloud of her own design. After the previous year when none of the small mammals were on exhibit (there was some health concern, I believe) rabbits and guinea pigs were back in full count.


SAM_6125.jpg

It's just one checkered giant rabbit, but somehow it looks like a checkered giant holding another checkered rabbit against its chest.


Trivia: The 1963-64 report on Project Orion prepared by General Atomics devoted two pages of its 725-page, four-volume report to the problem of fallout. Crew compartment noise received nine pages of comment. Source: Project Orion: The True Story of the Atomic Spaceship, George Dyson. (To be fair there wasn't much to say. Just a big embarrassed coughing.)

Currently Reading: Eight Flavors: The Untold Story of American Cuisine, Sarah Lohman.

PS: Why Stuff Can Orbit, Part 11: In Search Of Closure, laying out my plans for the next essay at least.
