Scenes from the PBR (Pro Bull Riding Event)

A couple of weeks ago The Man and I went to watch men ride on the back of bulls for 8 seconds then attempt to jump off and get a perfect dismount score.  I kid, I kid on the dismount score thing.  Here's a couple of photos of our night.

DSCN6335We sat in the front row which was fantastic.. but we looked cattle gates.


Jumping Bull



Before we went to watch bull jump 😉 we ate at Kobe Steakhouse (in the Power and Light District of Kansas City)


We had a nice 4 Day weekend and stayed at the Homewood Suites in Overland Park.  At breakfast we learned we were eating with some professional football players that were in town for a Kansas City Cheif players wedding. I was told the guy in the black sweatshirts name, when I googled him, I learned he played for the Seahawks.


Here's Mr. Eads relaxing…


Here's Mr. Timberlake and I… this is just after I learned I had tickets to go see him in July.  Mr. Timberlake looks excited too right?



Saturday Auction Finds…. Part Two

The Man has been to RJ's Auctions in Scranton, Kansas several times.. This was my first time there. I read they had some pallets of stuff there.. I didn't see much of that.. but I did find some interesting things.

Like Strickers Auction in Gardner.. they have an indoor auction and out door auction. I didn't see much I wanted inside.

They had TONS of matting…

See those green glasses? Those are Franciscan Madeira. I wanted those glasses. Unfortunately I was out witted.. I know you are saying.. "Out Witted? Don't you mean outbid?" Not at this auction. You see they don't auction items by the lot or piece. They auction a section of shelving at a time, and it's for choice. So when you bid, you are bidding against someone that might want a box of nails in that section, OR they want your green glasses. I let the bid go for my glasses, because I thought they wanted something else.. when they really wanted my glasses. 🙁

I wanted the brown melmac dishes.. but I was out witted on those too..

"Run out of tussin? Put some water in the bottle, shake it up — mo' tussin!"

You may or may not be a Chris Rock fan.. if you are, you know about "The Tussin" If not.. then I'll just tell you Chris' dad (Julius Rock) thought Robitussin could fix anything.. this auction had a TON of the TUSSIN..

Inside auction..

They have riser seating.

This dude's shirt cracked me up…

Hey.. how about some old soap?

Here's what I got… embroidery pillowcases, silverware, some Disneyland collectibles from the 1960's, games (for the youth room), old rodeo brochures and some art books for #3.

A Glimpse of the American Royal

A couple of weeks ago The Man and I won tickets to the American Royal Rodeo. (Thank you KOFO 1220) The American Royal is a month long agricultural-FFA-animal show-BBQ-rodeo festival.

The Man and I waiting for the Rodeo to start..

Before the rodeo started we checked out some of the exhibits. I'm slightly

afraid of horses. The man here.. not so much. I was pretty sure this horse

was going to break down the pen and bite his hand off. As it turns out..

the horse was pretty nice.

PIG RACE! Check out the girls in the blue cowboy hats. They are really

into this race!

Ever see a pig swim? You should check out Swifty!

This cow would not stop MOO-ing.

What I really want to say is.. "That is nipple number 5, a good dairy

cow should have like 4. (one of my favorite lines from Napoleon Dynamite.

I liked these white cows.. but my friend Claire says that white

cows are dumb and I should only like Angus cows.

Cows aren't usually this clean and fluffly looking. This cow (along with

the others at the Royal) have been washed and blow dryed.

I think this is one of those Angus cows Claire was talking about.

The rodeo was great.. I always slightly freak out at the bareback

riding. They seem like they are thrown around a lot.

The bull fighters.. fighting a bull…

The Budweiser Clydesdales even made an apperance at the rodeo!

We had a great time.. Thanks so much to KOFO for giving us the tickets.

A Personal Plea to The Man..

Dear The Man;

I really want to go to the Johnson County Fair tonight.  I know.. I know.. you’ve been at work all day, and it’s really hot.  I am in desperate need for some fair food.

fair food, corn dogs, I love food from the fair

We can take photos of our kids eating corn dogs.. and well, I can eat one too!  You know there will be some kind of BBQ there… and tonight’s the rodeo…

PBR bull riding, rodeo clown

We love rodeos.. I promise that we will not ride any of the fair rides…   So what do you say?

You know you want a funnel cake!

Love Always…

Your Favorite Wife.
