Crayon aprons, finches and races......................

 I made a few more crayon aprons for a gal in DeSmet.




 The Finches are back! They are so fun to watch the feeder is right out my kitchen window.
 I need to wash that window:)
 I belong to the SD Cattlemen's Auxiliary, and along with help from the Beef Checkoff Dollars we do a promotion at Huste's Speedway in Brandon SD.
 Our sign is on the 3rd turn and you can see it from the highway when you drive by the track.
Enjoying the free burger that we gave away one of 600!!! We also gave out 700 beef sticks, race flags and pencils with steer erasers for the kids. There wasn't as big a crowd as some years but still around 3500 race fans were there.We have done this promotion for 8 years.

We've been enjoying the finches this past couple of weeks too. We always get a lot of house finches, but this year we've seen more goldfinches than usual. Hope that keeps happening because they are so beautiful. My feeder sits outside our family room windows. Even the cat likes watching the goldfinches.

Those aprons look great. Love the thumbs up for your burger. The finches are pretty. Birds can be such amazing colours.
