Quinnebaug Valley Engineers
Zagrey Farm, Colchester CT
16 July 2011
Slide show HERE and video HERE
I got up at 7:00 this morning and walked my two miles. Did NOT plan that out too well. I did plenty of walking at the show and could have skipped the morning walk. The show was great and there were quite a number of displays that I had not seen before so there were new things to admire. I do like the Colchester show since it is only 18 miles from my house so that is better than the usual 75 or 425 miles that I have to drive!
As always, if you see a photo of your display and would like to contribute a caption please send the info to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please hover your cursor over the photo and a label will pop up. For example in the photo to the left you should see DSC00500.jpg (293414 bytes). Please mention the last three numbers of the DSC part, in this case 500. That will help me put the right information with the right photo.
This planter is from the 1870's after the Civil War. Or if you prefer the War of Northern Aggression. Reminds me of the time that I had some city dweller friends convinced that sunflower seeds had to be planted in a specific orientation so that all the blossoms will face the sun. HAHA
This display was from a timber framing company here in CT. They promised to send some information along about their tools and company. I think the flier I picked up is out in the car. I will look for it later and update this page.
What a range in displays. From a tiny jeweler's lathe to big a**ed cement mixer.
There was a Fireman's muster scheduled for noon but I had to head out before then so no photos of the muster. http://www.handtubs.com/muster.htm to learn more about musters.
Thanks to Rich Hubbard and Russ Steeves for showing the NEMES flag or banner at the show.
A yellow JD? I am waiting for someone to invent and invisible string!
