Yesterday was our 7th annual Greytfest. This year we held our event in Owensboro, Kentucky. One of our board members works for a big company that let us use their facilites. Very nice place. Not such a good turnout though. It was a gorgeous day, but it was cold and windy. After a scorching summer, you think it would have been warm just one more week.
This year, I decided to be a vendor. With a low turnout, I didn't do as well as I would have liked. However, my pumpkin was a hit. It was decided it would be best suited for the live auction. If it wasn't for the hounds, I would almost be embarassed to tell you what someone spent for it. It went for $150.00! It is always amazes me what people pay for things in these auctions. But like my friend, the auctioneer says, "it's for the hounds".
Even though it was cold, it was still a wonderful day. Any day that you get to see greyhounds is a good day to me. It was very hard for me to say goodbye to Buddy though. I know he will have a good home, but darn, I will miss him.
