Senior Day at the Eldon fair Thursday was great for me, with a most exciting harness horse race with many excellent horses and drivers. One horse, Natures Smackdown, won on his maiden race, and my friends, Reece and Milly Amos, were the only ones that picked him. They won $10 and a lot of teasing.

There was a free lunch for seniors; warm, but a good breeze in the stands. Good food, free popcorn and balloons under the stands from the Democrats, Bingo, exhibits, new products and farm equipment.

Very sorry that the kids and animals weren’t there, but the friends, neighbors and old acquaintances that I found to reminisce with made it very worth the day.
