DARQ: Well, I returned to find Catherine had sewn outfits and done a few craft and flower projects for entry into not one but two county fairs. One of those fairs was the awesome Crawford County Fair, billed as the largest agricultural fair in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
And, as you can see, Catherine did very well indeed–a total of 25 entries and 24 ribbons (mostly blue, which is first place!). And, she found time to sew me a new “summer” outfit. I love the daisy print blouse and it’s gauze sleeves!
CATHERINE: You love your new shoes more.
DARQ (smiles): True. So true! And they’re blinged out with sparkles.
CATHERINE: Hey, don’t get any of that cotton candy on my ribbons!
DARQ: Wouldn’t dream of it.
CATHERINE: You know, you could cut a few calories by not pigging out on that stuff.
DARQ (with mouth full of cotton candy): Can’t stop myself. It’s so sweet, and it melts on my tongue. We don’t anything like this on my homeworld.
CATHERINE: So, what did you think of the Erte outfit that took a blue ribbon at both fairs?
