Ropin is SOOO much easier than...

Just about anything. I have always said I'd rather be lucky than good. I still stand by this. I have consigned myself to the fact that it will be a heckuva lot easier for me to win the world roping than it will be for me to find a wife. I know you think this is crazy talk, but let's look at the facts: If I practice hard and get a better horse, I could perform better. That's not too tough to do. However, I have tried all sorts of stuff to find a nice girl, and I still am trying. It seems like I keep hitting the same wall. Like one of my brother's freinds said "I find a girl, she likes me but I do not care for her, then I see one I like and she cares nothing for me" (when you read it say it with a French accent, I can't remember if Sylvere is French or Swiss, but he spoke French). He was a bit older when he got married. I want you all to know that I am NOT obsessed with finding a wife, but it might be a bit better than bumming around trying to get dates. Back to the original premiss though: Roping is just easier to do. Yeah, I spend lots of time and money on my roping, but how often have I come home from a bad night of roping and wanted to never to it again? NONE!!! Why, because at least with the roping I know that I have a CHANCE at taking something home with me, like a check or a saddle or something!!! Okay, enough with the drivel... I am doing well. My truck is having a bit of a rough time (No, Linds, it isn't cause it's a Ford, but it could be something to do with the 180,000 miles on it, like Chris LeDoux says "It ain't the years, its the miles"). Life is realatively good. The more I look at the blessings in my life the more I realize that life ain't bad at all. I have a great family that loves and supports me, friends that are true and cheer me on in my pursuits and I know that Heavenly Father is watching over and taking care of me and guiding me to something good. I also know that I have the faith to make sure that I can get through it all. Remember folks: Pray like it all depends on Him and then get up and work like it all depends on you.
