My Birthday, and the Montgomery County Fair

Today is my birthday – 49!!!  I can’t even imagine being that age.  So far, it’s been a good day – my hubby actually remembered it’s my birthday! 

I am just going to post Bill and Dannye Reigh’s Montgomery County Fair entries, with the winnings posted on the pics.  I’m running behind today, so not much commentary!  I am so pround of my two photographers.  There were MANY great photos entered this year.

First, Dannye’s:

These were her choices for her entries, but she could only enter one in each catagory.  She took a vote from her dear friend, Kakie, to make her final choices.

Go Texan

I really love this shot – AMAZING!

Adam got the vote…

…and received 3rd place!!  This is excellent, since Go Texan is probably the most difficult category at our Fair.

Architecture –

This was the choice, and she got 2nd with it!

Vacation – she didn’t place with this, but we think it is a great shot!

I wish I could make this larger – it is so beautiful!  Sunset at Glenrose.  She received 2nd with this one, too!

Pets and Animals

She received a Blue Ribbon, but again, didn’t place.  I don’t understand that at all – a picture of the prettiest little girl in the world should get the prize of all prizes!!!

Dan’s last entry was probably her best entry – she had to enter in the Miscellaneous category since she got Best of Division in the People category last year.

What a shot!  This one got her 2nd, as well.  So Dan received 3 second place ribbons and 1 third place – a pretty good day!

Now for Bill’s.  He only entered 4 categories because of time limitations.  He did rather well, though.

Is this a great pic, or what!?!  He got fourth place for this one.

Bill received 3rd with this in a category that Dannye received 2nd.  The announcer had fun with the Dad/Daughter competition!

Bill didn’t place with this one, but received a blue ribbon and great comments with this photo. 

And last but by no means least, Vacation

Best of Division, thank you very much!

It was a really great day, and I have to admit to strutting around like a proud wife/Mama!

I’d better get off here.  Pamela is meeting me at Olive Garden for my birthday lunch!!

God bless your day!

    Happy birthday, Sister!  I hope you had a wonderful day.  I am worn out from all these birthday wishes. ha  Kim on Saturday, Mark yesterday and you today.  I’m just exhausted. ha ha  I love all the photographs.  Can’t believe that one of Ruly and the chicken did not win first place!  And the one Bill took that I love so much of the guy under the bridge or whatever that is.  I loved that picture so much the first time I saw it.  What a surprise to see the cute, cute picture of Adam.  I am so glad she did well with that one.  It had to be enterraining to everyone who saw it.  It sure made me grin.  Congratulations to both the photographers on their outstanding work!  Super congrats to Bill for Best of Division!!!  Does that convert into money?  Love you, Sis!  You are rapidly getting as old as I am. ha ha ha

    @ALDOG1 – Best of Division through 3rd place receives prize money.  Between them, Bill and Dannye won $425.00.  Not bad at all!!

    @bowmachine – Thanks, Andrew!  BTW, I got to see your precious little one from afar at the wedding Saturday – what a darling!  I wish I had been able to stay and visit longer, though.  The wedding was lovely, and Melody was a beautiful bride.  Stephen cleaned up pretty good, too!
