This week it has been a bit lazy and a bit crazy. And some times both on the same day. Tuesday morning Mom and I both had allergy issues so we just hung out and snoozed in front of the TV for a while. What is funny is neither one of us really knew what we were watching as we both would doze in and out and not at the same times … LOL Once we were feeling a bit better Mom said we needed to get up and round so she went out and worked the arena up for me. Of coarse I couldn’t not rope in a newly worked up arena could I???
Wednesday was so different. We spent half the day running around and getting things ready for our Summer programs not to mention we took the truck to get it checked out as it is using and leaking oil. We found that it needs a new oil pressure switch so Mom picked one up and I hope that I can get it changed tomorrow … with some help from Mom or Dad … LOL When we got the running done I did get to the roping arena for a bit of practice. After all that worked up arena was calling to me.
Thursday was a long one … we did chores and then headed to go get feed. We got the feed home and unloaded just in time to load up Precious and Coop and head to Tulsa. We took Precious to a trainer. He is the same trainer that helped Storm. We are hoping he can get Precious over her anxiety of being mounted so that we can start riding her. After we got her settled in at the barn and showed her progress to the trainer, we headed to a roping. Even though I was kind of tired I won both the first and second round and the average. We got home about 2am and headed to bed.
Friday Mom finished up the running. I manned the farm and did some shearing and did a farm visit. The parents were loving it but the little boy was having none of it. He didn’t even like the baby chicks let alone the goats and sheep. He wouldn’t even go into the chicken coop. It was okay though. The parents said that they will be coming back when he is a bit older. That evening I headed out to a church rodeo. I won second in the calf roping but didn’t do any good in the team roping.
Saturday was more of the same … Roping, Roping, Roping. First I headed to Perkins where I entered on both Storm and Coop. This was Storm’s first competition. Storm won second in the first round with a 10.3 but after that I couldn’t catch anything on either horse. I don’t know what the deal was. I was just a bit off. From there I headed back for day two of the church Rodeo. Sadly, I didn’t get anything done there either. For the weekend I am actually on the plus side so it wasn’t a huge disappointment. I just hate when I miss more then one in a row.
Today was a bit different but a really good day. For the record, It didn’t consist of much roping although I did get in a bit of practice. You see, it was my official Graduation day. Yup, I am now a High School Graduate. I don’t feel any real difference except that my stomach is full. We had a pizza party with my friends. There was food, friends, stories, laughs and cake. It was alot of fun.
Mom did do one silly thing. She got this dog that she had everyone sign. It was funny. She said she knew I probably won’t keep it but when she passes away and I call them to help me clear things out, she says that we will find it and do a bit or reminiscing. I think it kind of looks like Snoopy.
The Cake was good to and it was so Me. Simple but good …
I hope that everyone had a good time. I had some of my roping friends there but these guys were there for me through a lot of my 4-H days … Mom calls us the old gang. I guess my roping buddy and his family are the New gang … LOL. I don’t think I would have so many wonderful stories and Memories if it had been any other people. Thanks to everyone who came both old and new … I am blessed to have all ya’ll in my life.
