Today I go To DC for another 3 days. I hope to be able to drum up more business for my employer, it is hard work, I work a Home & Garden Show, mostly for 12 hour days, and that is just the time on the floor, 99% of the time I am on my feet (The 1% is time spent on the toilet and sitting down to reach under the table for brochures!) Then there is the time going from Hotel to Show & back. I eat breakfast before the show and dinner AFTER! That's after 10pm. The rest of the time I put my leads together, make a few phone calls, watch the news, and wish I were home at my Lake with my Wife.
It's not so bad, you get to meet and talk to a lot of people, make some appointments, look at the pretty girls - there are usually a lot of those - give gifts to kids, that's fun, talk to the surrounding booth people when it's slow. The worst part is not being at home with Julia and missing the sunsets over the Lake, as I've said before there are only 365 of them a year and I hate to miss any of them. Before the show today I have to go to Annapolis as I am appealing the property tax assesment on this house. So I gotta go. See ya later.
