And the Winner is...

We have a winner in the Country Outfitter boot giveaway.

Morgan and Regina Alonso of Lady Lake, Florida won a pair of new boots. Congratulations. Enjoy them and keep in touch. I'd love to see a picture when you get them.

And, as far as my boots. I think I'm going with one of the last comments.

They only have two or three holes in them, the soles are still fine, inserts are replaceable... I think I'll just keep them and keep on wearing them. They aren't my fancy dress boots any longer, but the sheep don't notice what I have on my feet, unless it falls off. No sense in giving up something that still works...

Have a wonderful week!

Social media workshop - will it teach me focus?

I'm spending today in a social media workshop at the National Association for Interpretation annual conference in Hampton, Virginia. Lena and Shawn are assuring me the sheep and goats are fine at home.
My traveling companions are teaching me the fine arts of traveling in the big city... like you aren't supposed to pick the kale and chard in the highway median for dinner? Who knew?
The main think I am hoping to learn today is how to create a comprehensive, focused promotional campaign. Whether I use it for OFC, Common Threads, Laffing Horse, Arkansas Craft Guild or... doesn't matter.

oooh, railway interpretation...

Yeah, like I can really learn focus in a 9 hour workshop.
