I saw all kinds of people. There were families with small children who weren't sure at all if they wanted to get on that ride standing right beside teenagers with tattoos and body piercings. There were grandmothers like me and young, pregnant women. (those pregnant women were probably the ones buying the fried candy bars!) There were young men in cowboy boots and young girls in very little.
I went to see the exhibits - not the animal ones although I could smell them so I know they were there. I went to see the quilts and the hand stitching and the jars of jelly and pickles and green beans. It was nice to see that the 4H kids were still being taught to cook and sew. The quilts were beautiful and every single one had a ribbon on it, mostly blue ribbons! Hmmm, let's see, everybody gets first place for their work. I've never seen that before. And when I got to the canned goods...same thing! Every one had a blue ribbon! And the bread, and the cake, and the pie, and the photography...blue ribbons! You know what? I bet that's just what Heaven is going to be like! We all will have a blue ribbon pinned on us when we arrive - 1st Place in God's Kingdom!
