Well I just got back from the Sportsman show and it was a blast. Lots of people showed up and my brother Ernie and sister Melinda stopped by a few hours each day and helped me out.
After I figured out how I wanted to set up my booth and got most everything up it was just a matter of trying to sell. Lots of folks saw the tackle on the poles and I had to remind them only the covers were for sale and the poles and tackle was to show what size lures and flashers each could hold.
Unfortunately for me I had picked up a cold a few days before the event, and those that know me know I rarely get sick and always had good luck in curbing my colds to a couple of days and thought I did just that with this one. But Thursday afternoon as Melinda and I were finishing setting up I started losing my voice- crap, so I went home took a bunch of meds and stuff and the next day, the first day of the show, I could barely talk. I soon realized how hard it was for my Dad who lost his voice box due to cancer a long time ago, to communicate.
Well I muddled thru and Friday was not to busy and Melinda came Saturday to help as did Ernie in the afternoon and also Sunday afternoon.. All in all it was fun and plan on doing it again next year probably in the same spot. Now it is time to get my voice and health back so i can get the boat out and do some fishing!! I will attach a pictures to this as soon as I can.. thanks for reading my Blog
