Yesterday Mom was at the show and sale all day long because that was the first real day of it. Dorrie and I stayed at home because dogs are not allowed in the Garden Center building, and doggy daycare is not open on the weekend. Today Mom has to go back again, because today is the last day of the show and sale. After that, it will be all done with for a whole year!
Anyway, Mom took some pictures so that I would have something to put in my blog. Otherwise, people will just think I am lazy, which I am not, even though I do like to sleep a lot.
First of all, here are the judges of the show. They drove all the way from Iowa, and they all wore green shirts, which made it a little hard to tell them apart. But Mom said that their names are Dick, Rebecca, and Connie. I was especially happy to see a picture of Aunt Connie because she is one of the most faithful readers of my blog.
In this next picture, you can see people shopping for plants at the sale. Of course, Mom bought some plants, even though she doesn't need any. She spent $41 on plants, and the plants she sold added up to $59. Mom only gets to keep 70% of the sale of her plants, but guess what! Seventy percent of $59 is $41.30, so this means that Mom made enough to cover what she bought, plus 30¢ extra. If she sells more plants today and doesn't buy anything else, she will make an even bigger profit, and maybe there will be enough to buy some dog treats.

Okay, well, that's all I'm going to tell you about the cactus show. Frankly, I think it would be much more interesting if Mom would go to a dog show instead, but nobody asked me.
