Been wanting to post about my adventures at the Columbus Show last weekend
but time has been tight again and I haven't really had a chance until now.
It was a great show and I had a blast! Met a lot of real cool people.
Lydia Russell from Michigan came with her husband and let me tell you...
she is so cool!! I loved her! What a sense of humor this one has! If
her and I lived closer-I think we'd be bestest friends!!!
Also got to meet Ron Carter-the ole fuzzie dad himself! He was pretty
cool, too-and I would swear he is part ferret! I didn't get to-but we
think my daughter got to meet Vickie McKimmey when she got to be a steward.
At least that's who we think she was. My daughter said, "Wow Mom, she sure
knows a lot about ferrets!" My daughter had a good time and I want to say
thank you to the HOFA people for taking the time to help and encourage a
teenager to become more involved! Bunny, Pam, Shari....thank you all! I
also got to be a steward-sorry, I can't remember (old age!) the name of the
guy I helped-I think it was Jerry, but he was great! I learned an awful
lot from him! I thought he was very fair and from what I could tell the
scores were sooooo close! It was very interesting to see how it's all
But the best part of the show was the shopping! I hate shopping....except
for ferret stuff! I had a blast! NEVER-I mean never take a teenager
ferret stuff shopping!!! I'm not sure how many vendors there were, but
they all sold balls! Big balls, little balls, balls with bells, crocheted
balls! You may think I am kidding when I say we bought from every
table-well, maybe not from every table, but when we got home and counted
them-we had 24 balls of assorted sizes, shapes and colors! The kids had
a ball with them-pardon the pun!!
Anyway-it was a great show and the way I see it, that reflects on the HOFA
members! So much hard work, dedication and love went into this effort and
it showed!! Great job guys!!! I can't wait until next year!
