Family Royalty!

Eliza, daughter of Joann's godson, Greg, and his wife Connie of Russia, won Little Miss Shelby County Fair.

The following photo and story appeared in The Sidney Daily Newspaper. According to the newspaper this little great niece of Joann beat out the older women in the contest (the four and five year old girls) to win the title. Congratulations, Eliza!

Contestants were judged on their poise and answers to questions. They were asked about their favorite color, song or poem, stuffed animal and pets.

Eliza, carrying a basket and a welcome to the fair sign, sang a rhyme for the audience. Her favorite colors are purple and pink and she has pets at home.

In addition to the trophy Eliza is holding, she received a $100 savings bond. Congratulations to Eliza and the whole family! We are proud of you.

You really need to explain to the folks how they are supposed to pronounce "Russia." That would make some people set up and take notice.

I love this piece or post. The youngsters have stolen the show again.

Hi, Thanks for coming by Pappy's Balderdash this morning for a little visit. You are correct in your assessment of what voters may think of both parties. Neither one is really easy to support. I think we may not have a choice to go back to mother England if we give up on our noble experiment. Our options my be Iran, or China. Now a pretty picture. Pappy
