We arrive a little more than an hour before the meeting starts and although Allison has already had help unloading the car, we pitch in and get the stage set up. Beautiful machines everywhere.
My fingers are a bit slow in taking the posed for picture ---yep she's already onto new things, but still waving.
The things she has moved onto --- obviously Mister is involved. He is trying to get things just so.
As Allison and I go around the room checking out the tables and talks that the guild has to offer, I notice that my sweet Mister is standing as sentry over the machines - making sure that no harm comes to them. What a sweetheart. It's time for the presentation to begin and Allison is on. She does a great job and has everyone's rapt attention as she speaks about The Thrill of the Hunt for Vintage Machines.
Whenever she needs some help with the machines, Mister hops up and gives her a hand. I so love that he is willing to do this with me.
It's hard to hold a microphone and a machine AND point out different features all at once.
Mister, a.k.a. Vanna, does a really great job.
A side note to this night: I LOVE the Land O'Lakes Guild and have every intention of joining and becoming a very active member. Fun times ahead --- starting in June since I will be at retreat during the May meeting.
