We had a wonderful time today at Reid's apple fest.  The crowd was amazing, the vendors were incredible, and the food smelled great.  The pork chop sandwich was one I wanted to try, but I didn't want to stand in that long, long, long line.

I travel far and wide to attend this type of event. I like craft fairs also, saves having to cook when the church ladies do it for you.Great post.

Georgia has an Apple Fest this weekend and sniff...sniff....I can't go.
I adore the chainsaw caving. Aren't those amazing?
Cool shots of the festival!
Thanks for your concern and support during my illness. I am feeling better but still have a wicked cough. If I want a smoke I will talk to you first.:-D)

It looks like a fun day was had by all. Those wood carvings are pretty cool. We have a neighbor a block away who does that. He's made a lot of eagles, bears, and an assortment of other things. We've gotten used to the sound of the chainsaws. I've told him one of these days, I want to do a post about him and his creations, but I seem to be behind in everything I do.

Thanks for your comment on my GBBD post and for following my blog.
