Pheasants and Phreezers

This past weekend was the annual Utah Pheasant Society Show. It's something that Mark looks forward to all year long. If you're wondering what a pheasant show is think, dog show, but with pheasants. (As I say that I get a funny image of Mark running his birds around a ring with green carpet). Anyway, it's always fun to see how our birds compare with others. Mark got a whole load of ribbons including 10 first place. Cougar entered some birds this year as well. He got 1 first place, 1 second and 2 third. Man, was he proud of himself.

I've said this before, but I really don't get the obsession with birds. I try to be supportive and I really do enjoy seeing Mark win something that is important to him, but if we stopped raising birds tomorrow I don't think I'd miss it. However, this show made it worth it to me. Every year at the show they have a big raffle. We have won little things(boxes of cheese its and various other things) But this year, we won BIG. Cougar's ticket was drawn for a brand new, still in the box, 21 cubic foot, upright, frigidaire freezer. I couldn't hardly believe it. I've been wanting a freezer for soooooooo long! I'm so excited! That's the power of positive thinking. I had been telling everyone all weekend that it was mine. I was going to win it. What a blessing! I can't wait to go to costco now I've got some real freezer space!

I have a big freezer, and I love it. But, now my problem is I DO go to Costco and fill it up. It's pricey, but fun!
