My sister gave me two tickets for Saturday’s Reno Rodeo Finals…reserved seating in the covered grandstand straight across from the shutes. Usually when we go its on the other side, in the sun, where we bake. It was pretty hot (98 degrees) and I toured the Jack Daniels travelling museum a couple of times just to get into the a/c! I’m a Bushmill’s girl (if I have any whiskey at all), but I was very grateful for JD on Saturday afternoon! 🙂
I love the rodeo…and while I like to see a cowboy stay on for the full 8 seconds…I love it even more when the horse and bull win. LOL! I especially love the bulls when they spin and spin and spin with slobber slinging in all directions. Cotton Rosser had brought some great stock this year, as always. I always love to listen to Bob Tallman; the Mutton Busting; the Steer Decorating; and we got to see a record set with a 91 in the saddle bronc. Cotton Rosser brought out one of the bucking mare’s new foals..they are so cute when little…all legs. There were some beautiful horses there…I especially like the dapple greys. And there were some local Clydesdales from the
Redd Barney Ranch! Just beautiful!

Here are some of my pictures from my cell phone…not that great, but it’s all I had with me.
I HAVE A PUMPKIN ALREADY!!!!
More squash, Cinnamon Basil blooming, and overall garden pictures…
Oh…and I’ve discovered that Sugar Peas don’t quite like being in a pot with hot weather…they are all fried and dried. Luckily the ones I planted next to the pumpkins are doing great and are loaded with peas. Next year I’ll be planting them WAY before May.
Here are some pictures of this mornings sunrise…
It’s been very hot already…in the upper 90’s. Not looking forward to July’s weather. Fires, Smoke, and Heat.
