We went to our first Halloween party of the year at my aunt and uncle's house in Belleville, Il. Camri dressed as Lady Gaga, but had taken of most of her costume by the time the picture was taken. We had a really good time! I can't believe it is already Halloween time...
I guess it really is fall out there now. I snapped the above picture on my way into work today.
We just finished the November issue, which gives me a few days of down time to ride. I should have been riding Hoos to get him ready for the showdeo in Oklahoma this weekend, but I think he will be fine. I had planned on taking Maggie along just so she can have some exposure, but I'm not sure if I will. I had been riding her quite a bit up until I got busy at work. She is doing great, but needs more hours than I'm putting in.
I'm hoping to sneak off this afternoon to ride...I'm sure the boss will be OK with it.
This past weekend I had a booth at the Reese Bros. Mule Sale in Westmoreland, Tenn. The facility is relatively new and there were about 6 other vendors there. I sold quite a few single copies of the magazine and two subscriptions, along with a bit of merchandise. It was my first "solo" trip with the booth. I think I prefer having travel companions, though...
Looks like the next mule sale for us is the Kelso Mule Sale in Mayfield, Kentucky, on November 5.
Last weekend, my dad, Cole and I went to the mule sale in Ada, Oklahoma. My dad and Cole both brought a mule to sell and I brought a booth for Mules and More. It was my first time taking a booth to a mule event, and it went very well. I took conchos, decals and static clings, calendars, books, a Harsha bit, license plates, and caps. And all I came home with was four conchos, two decals and a one book! I sold a lot of new subscriptions, too. I had a really good time meeting new and old subscribers.
My dad and Cole both sold their mule, too. Prices were not incredibly high, but Cole and dad were both pleased with what their mules brought. They allow ally trading, so Cole sold his mule on Friday and didn't have to run it through the ring. Dad was number 103 of 120, so he didn't have the best number, but he got her sold.
I will be heading to the Reese Bros. mule sale (http://www.reesemules.com/html/sales.html) in Westmoreland, Tenn., with a booth this weekend. If you are going to be there, be sure to come by the booth and say hello!
