Catching Up

            My grandson Matt and his horse Don't Scratch my Hot Rod at the state 4 h horse show. He came home with a 5th, 8th, 10th and missed another 10th by 1 point. The smallest class was 21 horses and the largest was 37 in his age group. It was a good show and  needless to say we were very proud of him. I enjoyed watching the group below showing their horses. Everybody in the group came home with at least 1 ribbon. Their coach Rose is in the blue shirt. She was so happy with her group that she has trained.
    We were concerned because of all of the rain that we had before we went if we would run into high water, but we were lucky going home. It was coming home that we were wondering about. They had closed the highway that we came down on Friday because of flood water. It was back opened when we came home on Sunday, but we had more rain while we were gone and as we were coming home. I saw my first triple rainbow as my grandson was bringing me home from their house.
    It was cool enough that you wore jackets and the kids even had to put on slickers to keep their outfits and saddles dry. One practice arena had standing water which was an exception to the rule. We all had fun that was the main thing.
   I hope that everyone is staying healthy during these trying times. I am so tired of news because you don't know who to believe or what to believe anymore. I will be glad when the election is over with than maybe we can get a bit back to somewhat normal whatever that is. I am doing well and staying healthy wearing a mask where required to shop.
  My fingers have been staying busy working on some new projects which I hope to have done before to much longer. I just feel sorry for the kids as to how they are going to go to school. My grandsons will be doing in school so that they can still do the extra activities neither liked what they made them do the last quarter of the last year when we were all quarantined. That was hard on everybody.
  Well I will try to be a little better at posting. Take care stay healthy and safe/
