Taken by my niece while camping.
You don't need saddles to do grand entry do it bare back taken by MA Donaldson
    My niece and her husband went camping and this was one of the pictures that she took. I thought it was so pretty. 
   My day started off with another round of thunder and rain. At least we didn't have the wind and lightening. Just the heavy rain which made it hard to see if you were driving. I didn't do my errands until this afternoon when the sun came out. It warmed up to the 80's after starting in the 60's.
My Youngest grandson at the Royals
    You don't have to have a saddle to do the grand entry. Teenagers, you never know what they will do. We have several that either have their permit or driver's license. I don't  know if I am ready for that or not. I know that it makes me feel old. Hopefully the arena will dry enough that we can get both Saturday and Sunday in this coming weekend. Saturday is a fun show to help with therapeutics riders so they can have fun too. We will have raffles and other fun stuff to help so they can continue to let the kids ride. There is always one show for them. They will have their time with their helpers to be in the arena. 
My youngest grandson went to the Kansas City Royal's game. They might make it to the playoff's this year. It is the best that they have played in quite some time. They even had some games that they had sold out crowds. They were playing when the storm went through on Sunday evening.  I sure don't like those kind of storms. I just say lots of prayers. 
My middle grandson helping at the horse show taken by MA Donaldson
   My middle grandson didn't do games at the last show, but he wanted to help so he put the flags in the can for the flag race. He likes being out there and even help put the barrels in the arena for the barrel race. He may be little, but he has the muscles. He didn't really have the bruise that you would expect when Fergie bucked with him causing him to hit his saddle horn. The weekend is suppose to be cooler which I hope they are right, but we will wait and see if we get them in. 
   I spent the day with hubby and thought maybe I got things squared away, but I think I am partially getting lip service. I will give it a few days, but I am still not happy. I still think one is giving his meds with a med instead of water. I know it was given with orange juice that had the med mixed into it. Plus you don't give a diabetic orange juice to take his medication with. Why can't they just do the job like they are suppose to?
   Sending prayers to those in need. You can never have to many. I still think that is what has kept us going for so long. Hubby got sick in November 1999. Saying prayers that the right decisions were make. 
   You all take care and have a wonderful rest of the week.

Dear sweet Shirley, you are so right about not having too many prayers. I am sending some to you and your family also. I do not like those nasty storms either. Take care . xoxo,Susie

I know those shows keep you's a sport I've never known and I find it so interesting. Your grands are quite talented! Yes, we've had the storms and we are expecting some doozies tomorrow. I'm supposed to do some shopping with my daughter but I am always a bit of a chicken venturing out when bad storms are predicted.

I always feel so bad when I hear what you are going through with your dear husband. It's only been recently that I've learned to be more outspoken with my own doctors, so I can't give advice. Can you make lists of what is bothering the orange juice? Can you ask to see his records, like as far as the medications? Just a thought or two. Sending much love an good wishes, Sweet lady.

Shirley, maybe you can make a note and post it in his room about the orange juice? So they see it and know you know and are NOT going to let up on this? So very frustrating. I will keep praying with you. :)

Linda said...

I will pray for you. You have a very nice blog.

Oh Shirley...I'm so sorry it's taken so long to, leave you a post! Our lives are crazy here too. I can see why you are frustrated with those nurses. Makes you wonder, are they that ignorant or what

The first picture is gorgeous!
