When we got there, it was even better than I could have imagined!
"Wowzers! Check this out, Ammy! There are cool animals all over the park!!!"
Dad said it was the Riley County Fair and the Kaw Valley Rodeo!!! It was so exciting! Dad walked us all over, so Ammy and I could see all the different animals! He shot a bunch of pix with his iPhone so we could show you!
It was a tent full of goats (some looked a lot like Jasmine!), chickens, roosters, gooses, turkeys ... all kinds of guys!
Sadly, she didn't - but wished me a fun time walking around the fair grounds. Very polite, those goats!
Ammy and I saw some guys with cows on leashes:
"Look, Zim! Those cows are going for a walk, too! Hee hee hee!"
Ammy knows a lot about farm stuff. Or at least more than the rest of us. She grew up out in the country. I asked her how I could win over the cows. You know, what to say to them, how to say it - the basics. She said there weren't cows on the farm when she was born, but she heard "How now, brown cow?" is a popular expression. I thought I'd try it out!
One of them looked over at me and started to say "moooooo".
Ammy kept trying to interrupt me.
Oops. How's a guy to know these things? I apologized and there were no hard feelings. I settled in, so we could all get to know each other. One of his friends came over to commune with me.
"Hey! I'm Zim. How's it going?"
"Zimmie, get up! Daddy says it's time to head home!"
Just when a guy makes some friends, it's time to pack it up and walk home?
"Aw, Dad! Can't I stay?!?!" I pleaded with him! He said no, but that he'd get Mom to bring me back after I had a cool down and some water. Now you're talking!
On our way out, we walked past these guys:
Me and my new friends, horsing around
They seemed to want to meet me; I told them I'd be back later!
Tune in tomorrow for Part Two!
PS: As you know, we had a full moon last night! We were expecting cloudy skies, so Mom didn't think she'd be able to "shoot the moon", so to speak. In fact, the night did start out cloudy:
