We returned home last night after a not very
profitable weekend.  Set up was Saturday morning
at 5am.  Yes I said 5AM!  So at 4:45am we were in
line to get our space.  We showed until 7pm, that's a
14 hour day outside.  Back in our hotel by 8pm and
sleeping by 9!  Sunday there was an artist breakfast
(bagels and coffee) at 8am and we showed till
5pm, a long hard pack up, 2 hour drive home walking in
the door by 9pm. While a first year show,  it had
seasoned promoters.  A great set of professional artists
and a good location just no people.  Very low crowds.

I got up early this morning and took a bike ride.  Linda
woke up with an idea of scrubbing the tent and tarps.
I mean scrubbing, front and back with little Mr Clean
scrubbies.  Thankfully our helper Lori was her scrubbing
buddie, they worked 4 solid hours.  My tent never looked
so clean!  Although we may need to chat that a clean tent
does not equal better sales!  When she is frustrated she cleans!!
Guess there could be worse habits...
Meanwhile my farm commission is on hold.
My client has a lot of changes and poor photos
so we are having a meeting this weekend to go
over things.  Track season finishes this week.
I had a meet tonight. Boys and Girls won.
Boys are 6-1 and Girls are 5-2!  Not bad.
Several of my good runners are ineligible due to
grades which is so sad at this time of the season. 
Thursday is our final Leagues meet.

Sorry to hear that there were low crowds. I hope that your next sales event goes way better! And the clean tent looks great...the green in your yard even looks better! ;)
