A goaty hello

Hi from the VAGMA annual show. So far we have about 100 goats and sufficient people for Friday-check-in-day to make me optimistic about the rest of the weekend. We have already seen a fair number of "tourists" (people who are "just looking") go through the goat barn. I've heard that some of them have come here from NC, GA and PA. That's pretty darn good, especially since nothing is going on besides knitting classes until tomorrow.

I discovered, despite the various problems with doing the program itself, that I enjoy collecting sign-ups and registrations. I am a good person about responding to phone calls and e-mails, and I like to encourage the new people to come too. And the weather, while humid, isn't nearly so oppressive as it has been in years past. The thunderstorm was late getting here, but things are cooled off enough for me to go to bed now.

Oh, and that 100+ goats is with three big-time participating farms being absent this year. We have, instead, more participation from some of the regulars as well as three new farms this time around. Yay!
