An Apple A Day

Yesterday was the Apple Festival and this year we didn't miss it.

We didn't miss the fried apple pies. Or the apple fritters. Or the apple dumplings. Or the apple butter. Or the apple ice cream. Or the apple cider. Or the apple cider slushies. We didn't miss the BBQ, burgers and dogs. We didn't miss the scuppernongs or the muscadines.

We didn't miss the farmers market - complete with lots of fresh tomatoes, okra, squash, and of course, apples. We didn't miss the fresh honey or the honey tasting (we opted for blackberry honey - quite tasty).

We didn't miss the arts or the crafts or the local folks hawking their wares.

We didn't miss the local high school marching bands or the local beauty queens.

We didn't miss any of it!

And if that ain't country, I'll kiss your...
