Packed up on Thursday and headed to Red Deer for the Mane event !
Lots to do to set up, and I didn't get back to my hotel till nearly 10. Decided to skip supper and just had a bran muffin and a banana. And that was the last light meal I had all weekend! Yikes!
I meant o take more pics of the displays but I got so busy talking with people about the horses and the EAPD program , I didn't get around to it, but here are a couple of items on my wish list
I had some help manning the booth, from a couple other coaches, and the most wonderful and charming little girl! Daughter of one of the coaches
Had a great visit and supper with honorary niece Angela . We ate quite late ,and far too much ! the Rusty Pelican in Red Deer is a great restaurant and man do they feed you ! seafood platter was amazing .
Also had a little oops, I had a cheap little wall mart belt and just before I left to go back in the morning the buckle broke! Great! I have no waist and no hips, so without a belt or suspenders, I would also have no pants!
Found a booth open as soon as I got there ,and yay! they had belts, but wow did they have BLING! pink zebra s tripe and pink cammo, all with huge crystals and silver bits ! I finally found one that I didn't feel like a old lady trying to look like a 20 yr old in . This is the tamest I could find!
Its actually fairly nice and it keeps my pant up so its a win, sadly I don't wear my shirt tucked in all that often so no one really gets to see it .
Another big busy day Saturday , and another big supper out, this time with Angela, sister in law Connie, niece Renee, and also my booth partner Brigitte!
Took a break from the booth on Sunday to attend Cowboy Church wit Hugh McLennan and Bryn Thiessen. What a lovely way to start the last day of the event
I then snuck away early , thanks to Brigitte agreeing to pack up for me, and met Martin for dinner at the Sawmill, we celebrated our 13 anniversary a day early as he returned to work up north on Monday . Another yummy, but too big meal! I think I am on salads till June !
After all of that we came home in time to move the babies to a better drier pen, and an area that I can work more effectively with them
That about covers it, busy busy and wonderful. So many people were impressed with the babies, and interested in the EAPD program, I actually talked myself hoarse! Only sold 4 books, but that is OK, I have sold quite a few at the Mane Event in the past, and maybe, as I told Dr Perrin , its time to write another!Besides I was there for so much more and I think it was a huge success.
That's it for now , stay safe my friends
