OK, why wasn't this idea around when I had my babies? I could've made a fortune!!!

Washington County show

A good time was had by all. Charlotte Schweikart swept the French Angora classes, and did very well with Jersey Woolies, taking BOB and BOS in show A, and BOS in show B, if I remember correctly. Giant Angora was split, Kathy Taylor took BOB and BOS in show A, and I got BOB (with Joy) and Kathy got BOS in show B. No Satin Angoras were shown, and only 3 English breeders showed, 2 Adult and 1 Youth.

My friends Phill and Judy Osborn earned a BIS with one of my "grandkids" at (I think) the Jersey Shores show. YYAAYY!!!!

Hopefully next weekend I can show at least one of my bucks at Blennerhasset in Marietta, OH. They've needed some work, the humidity has wreaked havoc on everyone's coat but Joy's. Can't wait to get some babies from her!

On another good note, I sheared Donna last weekend and she not only cooperated, she even gave me a bunny kiss. Maybe there's hope for her, afterall. :)

Pumpkin update

So I tried to get a picture of me and the pumpkin. Those of you who have been in my backyard can appreciate what a challenge that is - I have the patch surrounded by trellised tomatoes and pole beans. So, Bob did his best and got a shot of us through the fence:




The estimated weight is about 450 pounds so far. :)

I spent the weekend at the Endless Mountains Fiber Festival, where I got to see quite a few friends. Endless Mountains is a small event, which is nice and easy on the feet. If you haven't been there, you need to make a point of going, none of the hassles of the huge events, but enough vendors to get what you want and actually be able to SPEND TIME TALKING WITH THEM.

I give it two thumbs up!
