This morning when I woke up, the sun was shining but then half an hour later buckets of water suddenly fell from heaven, lasted about 5 min and then it was over !
As the sun came out went to the Ringmer Steam and Country Show.
Ringmer is a village in East Sussex, England. The village is located 3 miles (4.8 km) east of Lewes.
It is one of the largest villages in the south of England.There has been human habitation since at least Roman times which proves again wherever I go the Romans have been there before !
The showground was a huge field, where steam engines, historical vehicles, motorcycles, etc were displayed.
There were also a playground and toys
old car toys
a cowboy shoot out, where later some Cowboys "killed" each other
My friends Anne, Doug and their neighbor Yvon inspecting the tractors
I also saw for the first time Punch & Judy the famous puppets which all British children know. I sat there with them and and listened to the story ! Was very funny.
Then these old steam engines were shown, they smoked and stank, I wonder how people could survive working which such things and some of them lived until their 100, if today smoking a cigarette is already a life threat ! I pinched my nose !
I had a delicious cheese toast and a cup of tea and started to count the families which arrived with one or several dogs ! I quickly gave up counting there were too many ! but I also saw a black cat on a leash.
The most cute stall was where the owls and falcons were ! The little once were so cute, and the big one looked like a bad tempered old man !
After having visited an impressive amount of stalls selling old and new stuff, I bought a pair of earrings for a pound and then we slowly returned to the car.
We were quiet tired, and only felt better after a good cup of tea. We had a very nice and sunny day, only the wind was strong and therefore it was quiet cool.
For supper we had roasted chicken with Broccoli and a warm apple pie ! I watched a little bit TV with my friends and then dropped in my bed !
