Boy, it's hard to believe that a week has gone by, since we returned from our trip to the midwest. Saturday night, we went over to Caldwell, Idaho to help celebrate my dear friend, Ruth Rhoades' 80th birthday party. I provided the music, both recorded and live. I sang, as well as some of her other friends. It was a nice evening with friends. (Oh, and mom wanted me to point out, she is on my right, blue and white stripe shirt.)

What a wonderful trip, we drove to Kirksville, Missouri, picked up Lisa2 and Ryan2, visited the medical college where Ryan is enrolled, then, off to Iowa and Nauvoo, Illinois. Christina, and her family left Detroit, Michigan with their Garmin, and we met in Keotuk, Iowa. Here we are swimming and having fun with the grandkids

This weekend I head over to Ontario, OR for a 3 day college rodeo. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They put me up in the Holiday Inn, because the Saturday show starts at 8am. This is early, but it is designed to discourage Friday nite partying for the competitors. Also, the Hymns of Thanksgiving choir starts its rehearsals this week. Our performance will be in November. So, let's head out on the highway, don't forget a camera!

This weekend was the Idaho Girls rodeo, and the weather was terrible. Cold, windy and rainy. We were indoors, but still cold. Sydney Locke gave me a cute pumpkin. Cruiser, Karliegh Robinson stopped by, as did Dallie Rose Bean, Makayla Seburn and Macy Hagler. We had a great, but chilly weekend.

Back home for a peaceful Friday night. Saturday and Sunday are the year-end finals rodeos for the IGRA. Will update after performance. My surgery went well, and except for an occasional pain flair-up, I think the healing process has gone well. Thanks to everyone for worrying and caring.
After the funeral, I went to the Filer vs Buhl football game. It was homecoming, and Jesse Vierstra was nominated for junior class royalty. At the game, I realized their quarterback was #10, Colton Baratti, another rodeo star, and senior queen contestant, Kindee Wilson, yet another rodeo all-star! So it made a freezing night more enjoyable, once again, rodeo made the world a little smaller. (Jesse didn't win, but the girl he escorted won Jr. Princess)
