Last week, along with 130 thousand others, we headed over to Mystery Creek near Hamilton to the National Agricultural Fieldays.
I bought, on impulse(s): six swiss peelers, three rubber-band guns, some cosmetics (with instructional DVD), two kilograms of veggie leathers, a single-bed sized imitation hare fur blanket, a barbeque non-stick liner sheet, two pairs of gardening gloves, three pairs of fantastic socks, two hotdogs-on-sticks (with tomato sauce), three steak sandwiches, and two bottles of orange and mango juice.
We watched the fencing competition.
Look at the wonderful assortment of equipment this champion fencer needs, all nicely laid out. He had six bottles of electrolyte drinks of assorted flavours and four bananas, pre-peeled. He was three posts ahead of the other fencers, who had their equipment in messy piles, and no bananas, peeled or unpeeled.
I did not buy any large brightly-coloured agricultural equipment....
