Earl Fizzled, Truro Ag Fair a Success!

Pumpkin at Truro Ag Fair

Hurricane Earl lost power and moved far enough offshore that all we got was some rain and a little wind. It was so minimal that the Truro Agricultural Fair eclipsed it completely for us.

The Truro Ag Fair is on youtube here and here, and on several blogs, including the Chezsven Blog, which has some wonderful photos of it.

I spent the big day selling raffle tickets as a fund raiser for the Fair, so unfortunately I did not get a chance to sample some of the reportedly fantastic food available there. I especially wish I had tried the deep fried lobster on a stick from Mac’s Seafood, but since my seven year old son was the one searching for and delivering my lunch, and he hates eating lobster, all I received was a hot dog (his idea of heaven, so I know he loves me!)

School has begun again, so it is back to the bus and homework routine for our children. Likewise, I will be getting back to making paintings. At the moment I need to frame a couple of prints and get started on the commissions I have lined up for the fall.

    Enjoyed meeting you, Tom, and Francie. Thanks for creating, with the rest of Truro, such an amazing event that we Wellfleetians can also enjoy, and which helps us remember how important local sources of food remain …

    Hi, Tom,

    Pretty impressive pumpkin at that fair! Is it one you grew? I love the painting below of the north sky morning (I forget the exact title; short-term memory is the first to go, you know!).
