This past weekend I went to a little cowhorse show at Cottonwood. Very few entries in a club that used to get 100+ entries at every show. Don’t think it’s the clubs fault. Many organizations are having problems with entries etc. Even the AQHA reports problems. I think it all ties into the economy. I got a little stuff sold , so it’s OK.
There were two fellers there that knew me as a hard drinking man. Had fun telling my stories, but had I known I would keep seeing people with good memories I would have been a nicer guy. Maybe.
On Sunday granddaughter Emma and grandson Johnny helped me run a big old American flag up our flag pole. We saluted and said the Pledge of Allegience. Made me happy that both kids knew the words, and seemed to think it was neat to raise the flag. I believe in my heart that America has some deep problems right now but we still have the best place in the world to live. I sure hope all my great family can live as good a life as I have had. I know it will never be the same, just pray that not too many freedoms are lost.
