Today, it's time for an event we look forward to all year long - the Country Fair at St John's Church in Jacksonville. (It is amazing how many towns in our county have "famous" names like that...Jacksonville, Texas, Phoenix, Belfast, Graceland...) It's one of those good old fashioned fairs, with antiques, apple cider, pit beef, crafts, and music in the air, and without rides, penny pitch games and similar annoyances.
When it's time for this fair, we know it's getting to be fall for real...soon the leaves will change and the winds will shift to the north and we'll need jackets. And it's also like that if we go outside!
See you at the fair!
