    Misty for folks not familiar with showing - Is "RESERVE" kinda like being elected the Vice-President?
    Congratulations to the whole Family - Good Folks & Good Hogs!

    Well Tango, I hadn't planned on taking the extra days off work, or Mandy missing school extra days. We hadn't planned on having to feed an animal in another town for the extra day either....so on top of fatigue, I am trying to figure it all out.
    The fair/sale is in Pueblo. The sire of the girl is Freightliner from Prairie State Semen. Damn side is Red October.
    They bring the buyers in on busses and the kids have to go meet them tomorrow. It is like politics I guess. She is going to have to find out how to be a member of "The Posse" to solicit her sales. I have been hearing all kinds of stuff.
    As soon as I have pictures available, I will post them. Barker photography wanted $30 for me to have it downloaded (per page) and only$16 per page to have it mailed snail mail. I chose the cheaper and will scan it.

    Oh I see. It's a wrench in a good way. Thanks for the explanantion. Our fair in Okeechobee, Florida wasn't so complex. It was a one day event and the kids all made something. The top winners brought in over $1000.00 with just the one school day missed (which no one minded :) )
