Seen at a rodeo

I had not seen a rodeo in person since I was a child. So it was a real treat to attend the Mesquite Rodeo while I was in Dallas. There were many moments that left me breathless, but none more than this one:


Right after this happened, the horse did a sumersault and landed right on top of the cowboy.

This shows people hauling him out on a stretcher. Very scary stuff, but they said he was going to be fine.

This is "cowboy poker". The bull knocks cowboys down, and the last one standing wins. Very interesting.

That's just some of my wonderful Internet friends. They're great.

Wow! You're home! Lots of good stuff to read this morning! How exciting to see the progress for your new mobile home!!! You will be in hog heaven with the central air and that dishwasher! Can't wait for more pictures. I have never been to a real rodeo, I think I would have been scared to death on that crash. Did he have a helmet on???? What fun to meet up with your Internet friends. I know people are pretty leery (is that a word?) of us Internets but most of us are pretty harmless! lol! What fun to meet up with them and have such a good time eating and singing. I listened to the video, you guys sounded great. Package sent Monday, should arrive Friday via UPS. Remember, if you don't like it or if it's not like what you were expecting you don't have to take it!!!
Stop by I have an award for you.
