Well, Today I will be heading to Sportsman’s Paradise as my internship takes me the untraveled land in the state of Louisiana. I will be headed to Monroe, LA which is in the northeast corner. I am hoping that I do not run into any alligators as I am not trained to defend off those creatures..KRIKY!!! (or whatever the Crocodile Hunter used to say)
This weekend I will be helping with the Eastern Regional Junior Angus Show in West Monroe, LA. Not only is this the FIRST time I will be in Louisisana this will be my first time attending this show. I am very excited for the adventure and meeting many new Angus breeders and juniors. Hopefully, I will have some exciting photos to share upon my return. I will be assisting witht he show and showmaship contest. I also will have the honor to attend the Queen’s Brunch tomorrow, lookout this girl will be in a dress and heels at a cattle function. Nervous about my flights, but highly excited for the weekend.
In other news, yesterday I achieved a moral victory at the office. American Angus Association CEO, Bryce Schumann, and I like to give each other a hard time. From time to time Bryce returns to the office with a cup of ice cream. Since the first time, I have been giving him a hard time about when he was going to bring me ice cream. Yesterday, to my disbelief, he came in after lunch and told me at three o’ clock I was to go get ice cream. He would finance the trip if I did the leg work. Being so proud of myself, I agreed to this and at three o’ clock the adminstrative assistants and I enjoyed some delicious ice cream. When I brought him back change, he told me tha I was the first woman who had ever brought him change, I quickly smiled and said, ” I learned along time ago that if you bring back change, you get more money the next time you ask.” Needless to say, he was speechless and just laughed. I really expected it would be July before I got my ice cream, so now that he caved so fast, I am going to have to think of a new goal and gain a little more than a cup of ice cream! haha
