Fair and Square

August 10, 2008


Well, we did our part at the fair.  I’m all for being helpful as long as it involves sitting on my bottom doing nearly nothing.  Lloyd was helpful to the Republicans, too.  Our booths were not in the same aisle in the Ag Pavilion, but we checked in on each other occasionally.  He even snapped a photo so we’d have something to post about at the end of this long day.  Unfortunately, the dude at the table and I are not looking our best, what with his boxers hanging out and me stuffing my face with free popcorn from our bank.  Mrs. Prochnow looks lovely, though.  She is truly one of the nicest people you’ll every meet in your life.  Guaranteed. It was fun sitting with her – she knew everybody that came by!

Schmoozin’ with the peeps.

How was your Sunday?

    So, what were you advertising, the church? I wonder if we have any church-tables at the Montgomery county fair. I’ve seen food tents, for sure. And what is the guy with the boxers doing? Did you have some sort of drawing?


    • Lauren Said on:

      Yeah, we had four drawings -- a Concordia self-study Bible, a children’s Bible, a children’s devotional book, and %50 off school registration. We also had little toys and ‘Jesus Loves Me’ stickers.

    Some of the Lutheran churches in this area run a booth at the fair where they give away free water. It’s pretty popular most years because it’s so hot in August.

    The stickers really were a big hit with the Pester kids. YAY for St. John!!

    HA! “…I’m all for being helpful as long as it involves sitting on my bottom doing nearly nothing .” HA!

    Is that a blue blow up cross in the picture? I love that! If I stop by next year, could I win/take that?
