Saturday Update

Due to circumstances beyond her control, the Bag Lady was unable to meet her commitment of having a table at the craft sale.

She will now have to wait until the next craft sale - she thinks there is an upcoming sale a little closer to home sometime this month.

So there will be no report on the sale. She can, however, report on fixing fences that have been torn down by elk, but she knows that is not very exciting, so she will spare you.

Hope everyone's weekend is going well. Hers is certain to improve, right?

That's too bad Sis. When is the next one?

the Bag Lady said...

I'm not sure - sometime toward the end of the month, I think.

bunnygirl said...

I'm sorry. At least you've got what you need for the next one--less prep work. Gotta look at the positive, right?

the Bag Lady said...

AAAccentuate the positive, EEEliminate the negative.......

I was pretty upset about the situation for awhile, but ya gotta be a grown-up sometimes, right?

Elk go through fences instead of over them like deer? Now you have me worried, since elk have been introduced into eastern Kentucky and are doing well there.

Mary Anne in Kentucky, overrun with deer....

the Bag Lady said...

Mary Anne - they will sorta-kinda jump/step over, and usually tear down the top wire in the process.

They've introduced elk into eastern Kentucky!? Uh oh. Oh, wait, you're not a rancher, are you?

They are a huge nuisance around here - they can destroy a feed stack in the blink of an eye, practically. What they don't eat, they stomp into the ground and urinate on, rendering it useless as feed. We have had to surround our feed supply with 8-foot high page wire to keep them out.

the Bag Lady said...

Oops - Carla - thanks for stopping by this morning. As you can perhaps tell from my response to Mary Anne, I am not very impressed with elk right now!

Hilary said...

Aww sorry you missed the craft sale, Baggie. Hopefully you'll have more time to add to your wares for the next one.

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, Hilary! And yes, I should have plenty of time.....

Leah J. Utas said...

Sorry to read about the missed craft sale, but you'll have so much more ready for the next one.

Elk taste good, don't they?

Sagan said...

Those darn elk:) What kind of fence was it?

And at least this way you'll have even MORE crafts for the next sale, right?

the Bag Lady said...

dfLeah - and they look good hanging on the wall, too.....!!

Sagan - just an ordinary 3-strand barbed wire fence. Lazy elk don't bother to lift themselves high enough to avoid the top wire.

And yes, I should be well stocked for the next sale!

"destroy a feed stack in the blink of an eye"--how encouraging.

Of course I'm not a rancher--we don't have ranches around here, we have cattle farms. : ) With a guesstimate of four to six acres of pasture and the rest in woods, I won't ever have many, but I do dream of raising a little beef. So far, the elk haven't spread this far west--I'm a hundred miles or so from eastern Kentucky, depending on where you think it starts--but they've only had a few years to establish themselves. The deer are quite destructive enough.

Mary Anne in Kentucky, who decided her Move to the New House deserved to be chronicled for posterity

the Bag Lady said...

Mary Anne - so glad to see you have your own blog now!
The deer around here aren't nearly as bothersome as the elk!

Dawn said...

Sorry you didn't make the craft sale, Baggie. But think how many goodies you'll have to sell by the next one!

Crabby McSlacker said...

Oh shoot! Darn those elk. Good for you for taking the long view and not letting it ruin your weekend.

the Bag Lady said...

Dawn - that's true - I shall be more prepared for the next one... I hope!

Crabby - I was disappointed, but that's just the way it goes.

Tricia said...

At least you got some work done for the next one?

the Bag Lady said...

Tricia - that's true! I now have time to make a few more things....the next sale is apparently the weekend of the 14th.

Missicat said...

Hopefully you will rock the next craft show!
Have to say, none of my weekend stories ever contain the word "elk"..so it's interesting to ME!

Emily said...

Well that stinks! Maybe that means you'll make double at the next one : )
