    Can't wait

    I will be there, but I heard a lot of the vendors are going to be there due to the slow economy. I hope this isn't the case.

    We could not make up our mind due to a job going on it was ifee on when it was going to start up when we found out that it was not going to happen we were too late to get our stuff by the mail and would have to pick the badges up when we got to Louisville at the show . loked at some pictures they had at all the people lined up that made up my mind ,Not this year maybe next yr . The Lawn EXPO they have every Oct is bad enough and we get our passes in the mail still a lot of people to deal with .
