We had two chocolate sales to go to on Saturday (and I forgot my camera....so no pictures).
One was the Farmers' Market and the other a women's breakfast.
Seeing as Brittney and I are the only women, we went to that one. We first had to eat a beautiful buffet breakfast....bacon, sausages, ham, eggs, fresh fruit, muffins, hash browns, toast, orange juice and coffee ...... yes....it was rough but somebody had to sacrifice and do it....who better than Brittney and I? *wink*
Jake had been excited for a few weeks....declaring it "The Battle of the Sexes". He was determined his team would sell the most and win.
He was rounding up support all week....telling everyone he met.
Saturday morning came, we headed off. Larry and Jake dropped us off and continued on to their show. Jake was on pins and needles all morning....but had his game plan down. Larry even left him alone, at the booth, while he scooted back across town to pick Brittney and I up.
After the shows were over, we headed home to tally up the money. Jake could hardly contain himself as Larry counted......................
and the winners were:
I kinda felt bad and was worried Jake would be so upset. He tried so hard and is very sensitive. I do believe, out of the four of us, he worked the hardest. As I pointed out to him though....it was two totally different venues. Ours was a one time deal....theirs is a regular weekly event. Ours had 200+ women, with only 6 vendors....the market has several vendors (many of them food) from which to choose.
Surprisingly, he was ok with it all. He congratulated Brittney and I, shook our hands and patted our backs....with one warning,
"Just you wait until next year.....things *WILL* be different."
