I was working on putting together the newsletter for our church and I found this quiz.

I did okay, but not as good as I thought I would. How will you do in separating tradition from fact?

Royal Winter Fair

One of the things that Jim and I do on an annual basis is to attend the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. Jim takes a week off work and we head up to T.O. We use that week to also catch up with some friends that live up there. Lots of fun!

One friend just recently got married. It was odd to stay there with another man in the house. BUT it was also really nice to get to know him a bit. He's a neat-nik! First guy I met who was like that! It was funny how we could just put a dish down and it would immediately be tidied up. :) He treats my friend REALLY nicely which was so cool to see. They did most of their dating on-line. It was nice to have another couple who did that, for that is how Jim and I handled a great deal of our relationship prior to marriage. I really believe that sometimes God intervenes in our lives in ways that we don't expect. Who would have thought that computers could be used to bring people together? :) God uses the intellect of mankind in strange and interesting ways.

We stayed with them from Monday night to Friday morning. And then we moved over to another friends and stayed with them for the weekend. Nice to visit with both.

The fair! Man, almost forgot to write about the fair. :) We spent three actual days at the fair, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. We had hoped to meet up with my youngest brother on the Friday when they were having the holstein calf shows. But to our dismay it was impossible to find him in all the bustle. On Saturday we went to one of the paid shows. We saw a really cool horse display "Les chevaus 'Alexis" (or something along that line). It started off really slowly with a beautiful white horse doing dressage moves, but then showed horses running free and obeying voice and whip commands only. Way cool! I could easily watch them again. The main event was a Canine-Equine Event though. Both the horses and the dogs did really well.

Okay...most of them did. There was an English bulldog who thought that attacking the barrels was a the thing to do! It was funny. Not good for winning the round BUT a real crowd pleaser.

I remember the first time I saw the Superdogs They had an staffordshire terrier that had been trained in interrupt the show by stealing various items from the ring...and how much fun it was to watch him. My guess is that he can do it anymore due to the Ontario restrictions on staffies and the like.

it was a lot of fun at the fair watching the various shows, going around the different vendors and just relaxing with each other. Justin was funny. He rode around in a backpack and he would get so tired and need to sleep and then he would spot some cute looking lady and get all happy and chatty that he would forget to sleep. Sometimes he got a bit grumpy but overall he was a really good little boy. It seemed a bit odd caring for a baby while trotting around the fair. He got fed (he is nursing) in all kinds of interesting locations... and only once was I stared at for doing so.

Well, that's all I think for the day. Next year another week at the fair...Yahoo!
