State Fair Pork Puzzle

* 8/20 Update - DSMama takes the clue/pic crown.  Congrats! *

Sucked up 14 hours and 100 photos of State Fair fun last Saturday.  Powdered donut clouds and 75 degrees, with fried cheese curds, 12" poncho dogs and liters of lemonade shake-ups fueling the Tour de Pork.  Speaking of pork, the idea of a young lady being crowned the Pork Queen never fails to crack me up.

Light your curly detective pipes and arm the keyboards...time to match Fair clues with their photos. 

Leave a comment below listing the clue number with the letter of the photo it matches with, e.g.:  1 - G, 2-F, etc.  I'll update the comments with occasional helps if we fizzle into congress-style gridlock.  First person to correctly marry all clues with photos wins a heaping plate of jack squat $10 Target gift card and a friendship bracelet handmade by Pigtails.   

DQ to anyone reading this that attended the Fair with me.  
Don't be a tool and attempt this game on a tiny smartphone.  Boot up the big screen.  
One entry per person per day.
You have a minute to win it...er...go!

  9. Crap, we have an anonymous person in the mix now. For all I know, Pigtails highjacked my account and is logging answers as anon to secure the Target card.

    Mystery anon person, you missed 3.

    DSMama, you missed 2.

    Getting close, get it done!

    My first guess took a lot out of me so I'm done. I'd want Pigtails to have the card anyway. :)

  11. Tip: Look at Big Sis' list above. She only missed two, and both clues point to pigs. Correct that and we have our winner.

  13. DSMama domination! The spoils are yours, congrats.

    Now if we can only get 3 more signed up for the $20 Target card Follower Freebie, I'll stop begging to give junk away.

    I've updated the pics above with captions to explain how they tie-in with the clues.

    Thanks for playing!
