Monner's     Mumblings

Hides, Caps and Exercise Equipment

I thought I would have National Western Stock Show stories to share. The truth is, I do. One would think that by the name National Western Stock Show, it would be about all things “cowboy”. Well, it is, but it is so much more than that. The National Western Stock Show (NWSS) is this magnificent trade show. Literally thousands of vendors showing the latest in, well everything. Cows, horses, sheep, llamas, yaks, exercise equipment, (more in a minute) tractors, pots and pans, cell phones, clothing, furs (dead animal skins), water saving shower heads. I’m telling you folks, it’s all at the NWSS. I was going to look at it all. If you pay nineteen dollars to look at (construction language),

Bob's Yarn and Quiet

I’m feeling a little bad this morning. I haven’t written about yarn or the fiber arts in quite a while. I am aware that people read Monner’s Mumbliings to find out what’s new in the world of yarn and at the store. The true purpose of these stories is to keep you guys informed on what’s going on with Ivy and Elaine in the world of knitting and weaving.
