The Ugly Lamp Contest

Lynn’s Paradise Cafe– one of the best local eateries that takes pride in it’s quirkiness – sponsors The Ugly Lamp Contest at the Kentucky State Fair.  Abs and I missed it on Friday.  We both managed to see it Tuesday night… though we weren’t together… coincidence?  I think not.  I made it back to the Fairgrounds for some good times to be had with our friends, The Hillmans.  And I had my trusty little Canon PowerShot to do my dirty work.  I counted twice I mentioned these damn lamps with no proof they exist.  But they do. 

Two categories: born ugly and made ugly.  You decide which is which because I get confused.

I couldn’t make this up if I wanted to.
