The weekend has been different then we had originally planned and maybe it was for the best. We had over an inch of rain yesterday and we are in a severe thunderstorm watch tonight until 1 A.M. in the morning. We have had our Senator, our house of representative, and our governor all here this weekend looking at the flood damage in Northwest Missouri.
It is really bad and it just isn't our state that is effected, and to top it all off there is a letter from the corp of engineers talking about wanting land to increase the wet lands for the environmental protection of the sturgeons. When does wild life come before people. Somebody definitely has their priorities screwed upDad and brother warming up the horses before the show started. You can definitely see how long my oldest grandson legs are with him on brothers pony. Of course he handles the teasing that everybody gives him. Mom is in the background with the sunglasses. It was a beautiful evening with a nice breeze. It got cool enough that I put my sweater on before we left.
Here he is riding his pony all by himself. He told his mom that she had to have her tail trim before he rode, He came away with two blue ribbons and was really proud of himself.
Saturday was spent at home except when we went for a drive in the afternoon after the rain let up. It really poured. We got home from breakfast just as it was starting.
We could see it coming out the window. It got dark enough that the street lights came on.
We was suppose to have another show today, but the arena was to wet from all of the rain that we got yesterday and they were forecasting storms so they cancelled it to next month. They didn't want anyone or horses getting hurt.
