Royal Show job again!

I have worked as a Pavilion Steward at the Perth Royal Show for the last few years. In the US and other places you would have something similar, but more usually called a "fair".

Unfortunately last year I put my back out and had to leave half way through.

So, I thought that they probably wouldn't offer me a job this year, but the Human Resources Manager phoned and offered me the job of "usher" -- lighter duties, easy on the back. It seems to be similar to what an usher does in a movie theatre. Anyway, looking forward to it.

Here are a couple of earlier blog posts on the subject:

So, expect my Puppy-related development and presence on the Internet to be considerably reduced Sept. 25 - Oct. 2.

Fall Fairs are Great
The highlight of this year's Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto was deep-fried butter.
