Show Day

By Penny Matthews & Andrew McLean


It’s Show Day! Everyone has taken weeks to get ready. Now the whole family, including Goldie the cow, Albert the grumpy rooster and Bart the guinea pig, is off to the country Showgrounds for a day of fun and excitement.

When I was a child and we lived in the country, we always went to the annual Mount Pleasant Show. Country shows represent the very best of country life – all those beautifully groomed animals, glossy fruits, perfect cakes and jams, exquisitely made baby clothes and jumpers and patchwork quilts … I loved the horses in action, and the wood-chopping, and the sections specially for children: best pet, best hobby, best handwriting.

Dang! We just sold this one. Well done you for stumbling upon this page; we are in the process of removing this listing.
