Hey there Everybody! So nice to see you again…I am subbing for CJ while she and her Cowboy are over in Las Vegas attending the National Finals Rodeo.

Today, I bring to you a couple of short clips,  to give you  a glimpse of CJ’s favorite rodeo event, the bull-riding.  This is a super-crazy way to make a living…what do ya think, y’all?

 If a rider stays on for 8 seconds and earns enough points, he gets a paycheck. If he don’t…he goes away without.  Bull-riders travel the circuit all year long, hoping to garner a place in the Finals. Most bull-riders are done riding by their mid-thirties, and even then they are ‘long-in-the-tooth’ for this rough life. They get gored, thrown, stomped, crushed, and sometimes…killed.

(Hey! Come to think of it…when Chester, the mortuary cat is on the prowl, I take the very same risks, myself!)

These cowboys sure take a beating…I think I’ll just be “happy” to continue out-pacing old Chester, thank you very much. Besides, the crackers are worth the risk, I think.

 

 

Thanks for coming by to see my post!

Have a great day!

Hugs,  xxxx Morguie xxxx

‘How ’bout them Cowboys…’

Cowboys

 

Can’t believe it is time to go back to Cowboy Town for the  2014 National Finals Rodeo. What can we say?  We have a weakness for the danger and excitement of man vs. beast in an arena. A rodeo arena.

We would have a terrible time at a Mexican Bullfighting arena, however.  No no no no!!!!  No can do— watching that level of man vs. beast excitement. NO WAY, José!

But…we must confess, in Caesar’s time, we would probably have had season tickets at the Coliseum…only due to the fact that it would have been sort of expected of us (ummm, mandated or otherwise pressured by the locals).

You know…’when in Rome, do as the Romans do…’

C J  loves those cowboys, and enjoys cheering them all on…she often wonders what their poor mamas must be doing to keep from going insane with worry over their sons who choose to work within a hoof-stomp of death

So she’s off to Sin City once again…the annual pilgrimage in keeping with a tradition of following the National Finals Rodeo…yeeehawwwww!  Mousie will be left to his own devices…also left to the responsibility of behaving himself…oy vay…

 

Cheers Y’all!

Tough Enough To Wear Pink

It was Night #5, “Tough Enough To Wear  Pink”  for breast cancer awareness (pink chaps, shirts, etc) at the  Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Fabulous Las Vegas, a.k.a. “Cowboy Town”  and Stetson Vest decided to win himself some money tonight! Wonder if he got wind of my post from yesterday? Well, whatever it was he got it into gear and got himself to roping a calf and not just charming the ladies.

He is a Wrangler stud model when he’s not tying up innocent baby calves for rodeos. 😉

And, for your fun and frivolity, here’s an earworm to annoy you until the next update, lol!

My cowboy and I caught colds and stayed through the end of the show; we decided to take a pass on leaving the usual deposits and donations at the casinos, opting to call it an early evening, like old people ought to do anyway, right?

C J has ‘Gone Country’ and is over in Las Vegas for the National Finals Rodeo this week…watching those cowboys wrestle steers, ride rank bulls, and rustle up some big bucks doing some pretty crazy quick calf-ropin’ and saddle bronc bustin’…COWGIRL UP!!!  GIDDY UP!!!

Stetson Vest

There’s actually a cowboy named Stetson Vest…sounds like a code for some girl’s night out…let’s try it out:  

Generic Husband: Where ya running off to honey?  

Generic Wife: Oh, Jenny and I and Susie are going off to the mall (wink wink) to the Wrangler Outlet Store, they have a special Stetson Vest—we’re going to get us some…

…just so happens, Stetson IS a Wrangler model, when he isn’t qualifying to be a NFR Champion Tie-Down Roper. So, you really wouldn’t be lying…

…turns out, as of Night #4 old Stetson Vest is still sort of hoping his very charming good cowboy looks will be enough to get that gold buckle and a paycheck, because he’s surely not been so lucky (yet) with the actual tie-down rope on the calf…he still has several nights to pull out of his slump though.

C J will be back tomorrow with another Sin City update…if she just doesn’t freeze her ta-tas off before then. It is mighty cold! Just ask any of the brass monkey-eunuchs around here… Don’t need to run to the Wrangler store for a Stetson Vest…I found me a cowboy…he’s the best!

Eastern Lightning

Eastern Lightning, the Church of Almighty God was created because of the appearance and work of Almighty God, the second coming of the Lord Jesus, Christ of the last days. It is made up of all those who accept Almighty God’s work in the last days and are conquered and saved by His words. It was entirely founded by Almighty God personally and is led by Him as the Shepherd. It was definitely not created by a person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. God’s sheep hear God’s voice. As long as you read the words of Almighty God, you will see God has appeared.
