Saturday Sky for 8/12/2006

Seethe black sky in the background? Every year at this time we travel over to Hermiston OR to see the finals of the Farm City Rodeo. Yes rodeo. If I am going to see a sport in person, forget basketbll, baseball, football or soccer. Give me a rodeo anyday. Athelets working together. Horse and human. And you can tell with the horses that they really take their job seriously and have a lot of fun doing it.

We go to 3-4 rodeos a year, and at our local rodeo we are there almost every night. We have a couple of riders we follow. Tonight Blair Burk, Tie Down Roping, came in 4th overall and is 5th in the world standings this year. I am usually his bad luck charm if I am in the stands. Tonight he held on to first place quite a while. The other rider we follow is Jesse Bail, Saddle Bronc and Bull Riding. He's ranked 10th in the all around world standings. I am related to him throught marriage even if it is a little bit of a stretch. He is my late father-in-law's neice's grandson. Tonight he held on to 1st place in Saddle Bronc until the very last rider knocked him into 2nd. Jesse is still riding hurt (broke his leg last year) so no bull riding.

On the knitting front, I knitted in the car on the way to Oregon and got as far as adding the thumb on the Knucks. I love this pattern so far!

Sounds like a fun excursion. I've never been to a rodeo, but each year the small town of Roy (just a few miles from our home) has one. Maybe this year we'll pack up the kidlets and venture over for a gander. Cheers.

I've never been to a rodeo. Probably aren't as many of them here in MN as there are out west!
