Ripsnortin’ And Rootin’ Tootin’

1948 Ventana

As you can well see, we are less than a month until All Western Days. I realize we are in a bit of pandemic pickle as of late, but I see no reason to cancel every event everywhere, especially if it proves to be ripsnortin’. Don’t let it put a hitch in your giddyup.

It Ain’t No Woman Flesh And Blood

“… it’s that damned old rodeo,” sang Garth Brooks. And while he was singing abut it, Lisa Eisner was attending rodeos and snapping shots across the country. In her 2000 book, Rodeo Girl, we see glimpses of rodeo life, to which many folks are never privy.

However, I think most of us are familiar with this body language.

90s kicker fashion was hard to accept. Those uncomfortable buttoned tops that barely made it to your belly button, and the Rocky Mountain jeans that absolutely did.

Pair it with perms and vertical stripes, and you’re in like Flynn.

A sash means you’re somebody.

Hanging with friends in low places.

Don’t forget your skill set, girls!

Come back tomorrow for some backstage scenes!

Down A County Road, Part I

DayRide 026

I took advantage of the nice spring weather and spent the better part of Friday morning, driving down a nearby county road. I passed this white horse.

And this lemonade stand.

DayRide 001

A field of wildflowers.

DayRide 003

A rusting propane tank, not unlike the kind I used as my horse when playing cowgirl as a child.

DayRide 020

And some wheels that hadn’t been driven in years, better suited for the streets of Havana, Cuba than an antique car graveyard.

Laughed Till I Cried

If you’re one of those people who hasn’t watched SNL in years, you may want to do yourself a favor and check out this inspirational country parody called “Wishin’ Boot” from last night’s show, hosted by Blake Shelton. It helps if you’re familiar with Alan Jackson and Wynonna Judd.
