Yesterday the Arkansas Democrat Gazette sent me to Stuttgart to cover the Wings Over the Prairie World Championship Duck Calling Contest. All I had to do was get a photo of each contestant. No biggy, right? Well, it was pouring down rain, cold, and each contestant was to perform a 90 second routine. We quickly realized we would be there for a while, and we were, and we were cold, and we were soaked...to the bone, and those duck calls are pretty loud so we had a headache by the time we left.
Of course we get in the car to leave, and my wonderful, supportive husband is really excited about going home, and I had to break the news that we had another event to cover for Sync Weekly. Lucky for us it was an indoor event though.
My poor honey! I don't think these photos could express the word "miserable" any more.
My pants were soaked all the way to my knees!!
The dedicated duck calling fans!
