Well we did it. 7 full days of work at the Tucson Rodeo. That’s the longest show we have ever done. We had mostly bad weather, from wind to snow to the snow melting and raining down from the bleachers onto out booth as well as just about everyone else’s booth. It was mostly cold and windy for the show which made it tuff to get people to stop by and buy from us. But, all in all, it was pretty successful. We made a lot of good contacts for shows down the road and we are excited about that too.
One thing about the work at the show, we knew it would be over and we could head back to our trailer and enjoy the warm company of folks that we met in the campgrounds. Lee and Teresa, Skip and Sue, Jeep and Star, Bob and Mary Ann. We never knew these folks before we got to Tucson. We were looking around for a camping spot, when we found one we realized we did not have the right plugin for electricity. I saw a couple of guys having an adult beverage and thought I could talk to them. Told them our problem and Sue, Skip’s lucky wife, told us to pull in over there and we could string a cord from their coach to our trailer for the night. We did and stayed the rest of the time right next to all these folks. We had a great time and I have lots of stories to tell, and will as time goes on. I’m not sure that they will ever read the blog but if you ever have the fortune to camp next to folks of this caliber, I hope you do.
Now that we are home I will start getting ready for a couple of horses that are coming in March. Will be good to get back to working with horses and I'm very excited about that.
Oh, while we were in Tucson, Kathy and I had the chance to hang out with Jan, Tucson’s mom and her husband David. We got to see them several times over the two weeks we were there and they we a treat to be around. Looking to more work with Jan and a couple of barns in the area.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
