And the number 1 thing (besides Girl Scout Cookies) that I love in the Post-Christmas Winter is….
THE STOCK SHOW!
Seriously its one of my favorite things to do, despite the fact that its pretty much exactly the same every year…I find comfort in that. This year was no exception! Mr Gaunt and I went alone for the first time, we went after work on a Thursday. I used the Visa gift card I found on the ground to buy our tickets…pleasing.
So in usual form we paroosed the booths of AS SEEN ON TV stuff and bedazzled cowgirl apparel. We hit up the petting zoo and watched the merry-go-round. We poked at feather friends and looked at funny farm equipment. We always like to hit up the small free arena and watch the 4H kids show off their cows, they are all big and fluffy in the winter. We like to add our own commentary and make up our own standards for how we judge a cow. Mr. Gaunt really wanted to see the Sheep Hearding dog competitions but they are only on the weekends. I’m promising him now that one day we can get one of our own and train it to be all super smart. Our new house has a fully fenced large back yard….Do I hear
Wedding Bells Puppy Bells?
We also ate a smidge of garbage food, BBQ Chicken and Lemonade. And I insisted on buying meticulously expensive Salt Water Taffy, as it is my favorite! And as we were leaving we saw GO VEGAN spray painted on one of train cars…I though this was funny and Ironic.
