more simple pleasures ... young farmers and ferrets


the tug of war used to be part of every country show along with numerous other demonstrations of physical prowess that have been banished for health and safety reasons (along with fun and joy).

Ferrets will be next on the list, but for the time being they are still allowed to race. Tail end Charlie (bottom photo) was quite endearing.

Oh dear, I'd better not let the girls see these photos. Robert wanted to go to this show but we ended up visiting the Duchy Square arts centre at Princetown and the Devon Guild of Crafts at Bovey Tracey, much to the girls' disgust. Robert and I feel as though we've topped up our creative batteries. Great grub at Bovey Tracey, too.

Oh what fun! I've never seen a ferret race.
