Joan, I always love to read about the Stock Show when you post about it in Denver. Right up my alley! I have no doubt it will be well attended, especially with last years weather causing it to be canceled.

Lisa, we have pretty good weather considering usually it is very cold and snowing.  We are seeing 40's and 50's.  Not bad for this time of year.
