This cowboy's hat is hung up with care and waiting till the return on his owner. It will hang on the wall until this cowboy/soldier returns back to swap his combat boots for his cowboy boots with the spurs. This cowboys hat will hang and think about all the times it and his cowboy/soldier has had and think about the fun times they will have when he returns. Sometimes this hat has to sit and hang out by itself while all the other cowboy hats get to go out to hit the rodeo circuits but there is something special about this cowboy hat., it's not like all the other cowboy hats, his owner is out there protecting and defending this great nation so other cowboy hats can ride the open range, chase them lil doogies, ride them wild bulls, but he knows his owner will return home one day. His owner will slap him on his head, and out the door they will go. So see, this cowboy's hat knows he is different then all the others, for his owner is not only a cowboy but also a UNITED STATES SOLDIER. So until the day his owner returns this Cowboy's hat will hang there on the wall with pride and honor.

DO WHAT????????????????

Last night started our rodeo weekend here in Pontotoc. As you know I am on the drill-flag team. For the past couple of years us gals has always carryed the different flags of the military branches. Last night when we got there , got all dolled up, got our horses saddled and ready to groom, we got informed that this year we all would be carrying the flags to the different events in rodeo. WHOA NELLY!!!! DO WHAT?????????? You mean to tell me that now the Pontotoc Unit is deployed out and these guys need to know that the county is behind them and supporting them, We Are Not Carrying The Military Flags?????? Man, that's is just wrong, bad wrong! Then we get told about 30 minutes before our preformance that our routine has changed. Some of us gals was wondering just exactly what Robbie had been smoking? There are 3 of us who is the ones who is one the team every year...our position never changes then we have 3 different ones every year...let me explain...there are us 3 who is on the team and we stay..then every year the new ones who have been crowned the rodeo queens like MRS. RODEO, MISS RODEO, and TEEN MISS RODEO(only if the winner is an excellent rider and capable of handling her horse). Us older ones(the ones who never changes) knew we could hit our marks without praticing but we knew the new ones wouldn't. I'm the first one in so I had chatted with my sisters and we decided we would keep our old routine and between us old gals we would put the news ones in between us. So when those gates opened last night...we done our old routine. Every one hit their marks. Tonight we ride again. I'm not running this weekend...just didn't have the desire to.

Like I stated in the earlier computer died and now I'm on a borrowed one. Still trying to figure out how to use a laptop. thinking the next one I buy may just be one of these. I chatted with JB this moring. It wasn't a long chat but just hearing something from him makes my day so much better and sweeter. He is doing good.
My garden is coming along. Or rather everything but my tomatoes. I have been buying them from the amish. I have not really had time to ride. I started a new job about 3 weeks ago and I have been putting in some hours. I work anywhere from 7 to 11 hours Mon thru Thru and all day on Fridays. It has really helped not only the paycheck but keeping my mind busy.
I may not get to visit each and everyone of you. It's because I had saved your blogs on my old computer but now with this one....I can't remember where you all are at....Could I have some help over here
