Rodeo, I know you posted this months ago, but I'm just now discovering it and it was wonderful to watch you tell this story, and even more hilarious than reading it! Great job!

Rodeo, there just nothing quite like a good story, whether it’s about some funny thing that happened in life or the scary stories around the camp fire or even the story with lessons. I love to hear a good story from a story teller. One of my favorite things at the State fair is the story telling times at the barn on top of the fair grounds hill. It’s always packed with people. I always wished I could be one to tell a good story but never had the nerve to stand in front of a bunch of people. When forced to do that in collage, it was a comical sight to watch a young lad’s large muscle groups twitch as he tried to untangle his tongue enough to get through a speech. I admire people who can be a charismatic speaker. It’s a great talent that you have and laughter is like a good medicine. It will drain away the stress of life. I always enjoy reading your blog entries as they make my day better. So here’s to good life story telling. May it always increase our desire overcome the negative in our lives.

Yes, yes...the grocery store, the library, even customers at work. Ah, but don't you laugh too hard, Rodeo. One day, probably at the exact moment you'll be trying make a good impression on a new client, someone out-of-the-blue will walk up and say, "Hey, aren't you that Pig Wrangler Woman?! Do any more mud-wrestling lately?" Yeah, it'll happen. Just smile and nod when it does.
