Bat mitzvah prep, then off to the farm show

Elder niece's bat mitzvah is on the 28th, and before various relatives descend I have a list of things I want to get done in the house. A long list. Which is, however, shrinking rapidly due to Real Life. (Note that a similar list exists next door where niece lives, resulting in such recent events over there as a new driveway being poured, the house being painted, etc.) Collapse )
The new carpet purchase for the living room was on the list, and the carpet got installed today, according to my sister-in-law who supervised the job. She also discovered that the plan to shut the cats in the Cat Room is a non-starter, as Fish, the Cat of Very Little Brain, can open the Cat Room pocket door in nothing flat. So much for the use of the Cat Room as an isolation area...

Farm show, day 1

So, yesterday I drove down to Moultrie, checked in as an exhibitor, and set up my booth (slot 75 in Agribusiness Bldg. 1--there are close to 100 booths in each of the 4 AB buildings). Tuesday the show, the Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition, began. Sunbelt brings around 200,000 visitors to a dedicated site (a former air field) just outside of Moultrie, a town of 15,000 people.
