So last night I was at a team roping and didn’t get in until 4am. I slept until I had to get up and move goats due to more rain. Then I spent some time with Mom as she made a wedding gift for a Couple who got married tonight. It was the first wedding I have attended. However, Everyone was told that we needed to be evacuated due to the rain and flooding which had the bride in tears.
So last night I was out at a team roping until 4am. I took Storm and it was her first roping back since she twisted her leg about 8 weeks ago. We placed 6th and it brought home a paycheck. Not bad for the first time competing in that long. She did great and she nailed everything I asked her to do. And she did it without shoes on. Thursday she is supposed to get her shoes back on. Then just imagine what she will do.
Today it was more rain. And lots of it. At 10am Mom came in and got me up to help move the goats again. Their pen is flooding the worst but we just move them into the barn and then back when the pen drains. It rained off and on all day. It made it hard to get the goats anywhere. They just keep having to go in the barn when it floods … In between dealing with all the rain and flooding, I hung out with Mom.
I made us Tacos for lunch while Mom made a Baking pan carrier for a friend of hers that was getting Married tonight. We left for the Wedding, that took place at Woolaroc. It is an awesome place. It is the country home of Frank Phillips … The founder of Phillips 66 Petroleum Company way back when.
After the Ceremony, the couple was starting the reception after a lot of Picture taking when a worker came in and said that Everything needed to be evacuated and it needed to happen within the hour. The Bride got upset. I kind of think that they handled the whole issue very badly. I think the worker should have pulled the Groom aside and explained the situation to him and let him handle it. After the lady came and said that over half the people got up and left. Leaving the Couple not yet having a first dance, a Daddy Daughter Dance or even cutting the cake.
I can see why the Bride was upset. As for Mom and us. We stayed. We were there for them from Start to finish. Mom even helped the Bride’s Mom clear food from the reception and get things cleaned up so that they could at least have their “moments” before we had to leave. Then as we went to head out The Bride’s Brother’s car wouldn’t start.
The Groom was out in the rain trying to jump start it with his Little Hybrid. Mom told him to move his car and she would handle the jump start. That hybrid just didn’t have a battery big enough to jump anything. Mom’s truck on the other hand … She had him give it a few moments and then it Cranked right over.
As we left the employees where showing everyone the way out of the Event the back way. And sadly, the back way wasn’t flooded. I am not sure why they didn’t just take everyone out that way AFTER the reception instead of upsetting the bride and scaring the guests half to death. It was kind of Crazy but It was a beautiful wedding. The Bride and Groom are amazing people and they are well on their way to a happy life together.
There was one thing that happened that was a bit weird though. As if the whole event was par for the course … LOL When we went to leave there was another girl at our table that was a year or so younger then I am and … She asked me for my number. Huh??? So instead of taking a date to the wedding, I think I might have gotten a date at the wedding … LOL
