This Will Be Quite a Saturday

September 13, 2008

Okay — so did I tell you I am the Rally/Obedience Chair for Coronado Kennel Club’s inaugural shows which begin today?  Last night — close to 9 PM, the Assistant Show Chair called to tell me that at 5:00 my Rally Judge had notified her that she was sick and would not be here.  None of the other judges on the panel are approved or provisional for Rally.  The only New Mexico judge who can do Rally is already scheduled to judge tomorrow.  They were trying to track her down to see if she would judge Rally today as well.  Of course, that means we get to refund money to any exhibitor who does not wish to show under her two days in a row!  How could this happen?  It’s my buddy Murphy at work.

My judge issue seems pretty insignificant compared to Hurricane Ike which intensified after landfall and is trying to break Houston and surrounds into little pieces.  I woke up at 2:15 this morning to turn on the weather channel.  All I can do is send good thoughts to the people in harm’s way.

Time to shower and head for the show site (which is a 40 minute drive from my home).  I sure hope there is a Rally judge standing there when I arrive.  Besides, I have the ice chests, a giant pasta salad, and some Best in Show snacks.
