Survived the Weekend with a Blast of Fun!

The message rang loud and clear in Rocksprings, TX, this weekend in the celebration of this Independence Day - This is still One Nation Under God. It was seen in people's hearts and caught on film in this photo of one of the float's flags.

It's taken me a few days to get back in the swing of things around here and to get caught up from the weekend! We had a fantastic time in Rocksprings, visited with some old friends, and met some really nice, new folks. We marshaled the parade with Bill and Vernon - two of the greatest characters you could ever meet. It's worth the trip to Rocksprings just to meet these two. They've both attended or been a part of the Rocksprings Rodeo for over 80 yrs.

Rooster's shoes were a big hit at the parade! His toesies didn't hurt, and everyone loved his patriotism!

This is our most relaxing weekend of the year, and we love it. Here's our camp out at the rodeo arena. I'd sure love to bring some of those trees home.


And we got to spend two nights watching my FAVORITE sport, and the weekend went to the bulls!

Can you believe this is what I wanted to do in high school. Yeah, those of you that know me probably can... A friend of mine and I were going to a school to learn to become bull-fighters. I guess God played His hand there when we found out the price of the school - $$$$$$$. Thanks Lord, for keeping my slow rear-end from getting stomped by a bull and for still letting me play with cows! God is good!

And since we've been home, the rocks in the new entry are going up!!! Yay! Gayland has been working hard to get the rock walls done. I have a very technical, and highly skilled job in the process. I'm the official sweeper - upper. Well, somebody's got to have the important job!!

Catch a blessing today because God is shakin' them out all over the place!


  1. Sherry, I swear I giggle every time I think of Rooster in his patriotic scoots! They are AWESOME!!! I hope he made the paper in your parts.
    Bull ridin' is nuts but I totally understand the thrill of it!!
