This is (or should be) a video of the impressive Display of Old Waterpumps churning away in a corner of the field.
I decided to be daring, and brought Rosie along. She actually enjoyed herself quite a bit, particularly when we had Roast Pig Inna Bun. Even though the place was HEAVING with dogs, she was actually very good and polite with all of them. Well done, Rosie Roo. I didn't put her into the dogshow though. I felt that might be a step too far.
The Vintage Cars were of varying Vintages. I saw the WWII American Jeep drive in under its own steam though: no towing or trailers! And they all drove around the show field for a parade at the end.
I admit, I was just a little disappointed by someof the Marquee classes. Haveing grown up in a village where the competition in the field of Largest Onion was legendary, the onions struck me as no more than Moderately Large. However, there was a Men Only Rock Bun class, which is the kind of casual minor sexism that one expects from a Village Show.
This embroidery that won First in the embroidery class is not by me, but I was much impressed by all the dragons and volcanic activity. If I was going to do embroidery, this probably is the kind I would do.
I got a Third prize for my Lion and Unicorn painting, a Second for a portrait of an old witch with a kitten.
