Rain... and MUD

Heck, it hasn't stopped raining here for two days, course, it started out in the form of snow. Made some heckuva mess of our pens and the horses are up to thier knees in mud...That made it tough to get to the Rafter 4S to go roping yesterday. I roped with some good folks, had a great time. Getting there was a bit tough, as I took my truck and it is a two-wheel drive. I'd hit the gas and fishtail, with the trailer. a bit scary. Roping sure was fun though. I have determined that my Christmas present of Crooked Stirrups was about the best gift that I got from mom and dad. They are soooooo comfortable. I would tell anyone who has bad knees and ropes to try a pair... Don't get the knockoffs, get the real things, if they don't have the logo of the CrookedStirrups on it it ain't real... OH Happy New Year to everyone and Happy Birthday to my big brother, Riley. I hope this new year has as much in store as the last 23 years of my life has.

Wild wind last night!!!

Went roping with a good buddy of mine to the Rafter 4S. Took his truck and trailer as mine doesn't have lights. We headed out about 5:30, and we weren't due to rope till 8:00, so we figured we'd stop in at the Outback for some steak. I hadn't been there for five years and I forgot how spendy they are! The waitresses were friendly but looked like they were from Australia... They guffed our order up and we ended up having our meals boxed up so we'd make it to rope on time. No tip> No I am not cheap but when a place messes your order up like that and does nothing to correct it, I don't feel like they earned thier keep. I roped pretty decent, heck I was 20 for 25, lots of legs, but a few really good slicks. As we left to head home the wind came up and was blowing like heck! We didn't use too much gas in getting home, and it looked like the rain that was falling was trying to outrun us! Got home about midnight, pretty good deal if you ask me. The simple fact is the worst day roping is WAY better than the best day at work!

Boy Howdy

I am ten miniutes away from being the winning bidder on a new Dell! Yahooey. I hope no little poop comes along and guffs it up. I am a bit nerveous, but I reckon its like buying a steer at the livestock auction on Thursdays. You look the thing over real good and figger its what the farm needs, or its the right price. You bid and so does someone else and your heart gets pumpin like crazy and you shake and yahooey its a good rush. Almost like catchin two feet in 6.8!

What in the world?

In case anyone is wondering, this is the first time I have done something like this, but maybe it'll be a good journal.
I just finished up another semester at BYUI and I am headed out to the big city of Boise for the opportuinity to perform an internship. I hope it will prove fruitful.
