Chautauqua County Fair 2018 Day 7: Saturday

Well as I sit here and write this it is finally the last night of the week. I was very tempted to walk around singing “Last Midnight” from Into the Woods but I didn’t think anyone would get it, so I restrained myself. It still hasn’t really seemed to hit me yet that when I go home tomorrow I will never show cows with 4-H or sleep in this barn again. It could be because I’m not really gonna let it until Monday, or try to anyway, we’ll see what happens tomorrow. It’s probably just cause I’m tired and ready to go home. There’s also the fact that one can never really know what the future will bring, and I could very well come back and show in the Open Class again. And be back to visit like every year until I no longer know anyone here.

So events of the day; there was a Holstein show and a fun show in the arena which we watched for a bit. Then we played a few games on the Midway and I won a pig, a cow, and a Gizmo, (the one from Gremlins for those who don’t know what that is). The showers were clogged for a bit but they’re fixed now I think. There was also the last big meeting of the week and I had to go up and be recognized for aging out. And then we had the barnyard olympics for the kids which actually went pretty well and wasn’t a huge mess for the first time in three years. I also got to give a kid a prize for being the most enthusiastic first year which was kind of fun.

Well with that we head into the final night of the fair and into my final day of my final year in the 4-H Dairy Program.
