Good Morning Tucson!!! It's another day in the desert with cooler temperatures. All the way down to 102 degrees. WOOHOO!! In fact, it's 77 on this lovely morning and I have the doors open.
I was praying that this would be my view at about 9:00. The roofing crew was due this morning with only a "chance" of storms. Turn out the weather guessers (at least those on my phone app) were wrong once again. Channel 13 news, which is what the roofers go by, says 80% chance of rain most of the day. How can they be so far apart in predictions? I had my ropes ready just in case I needed to go hogtie someone, drag them here and chain them to the house in order to get it done.
Well guess what ... they aren't coming. Big sigh. I guess I will become a Channel 13 watcher. Now they say they will show up tomorrow. I'm not holding my breath. The interesting part is just how far apart the weather can be between Tucson and here, about 20 miles away. We shall see.
Someone else had $972 dollars more than Stetson for the All Round Championship. That's entering at least two events and winning the most money for both events combined. Stetson entered the bronc riding, but did not win. That left him with only ONE event in which to win enough money to beat the other guy.
Amazingly, he did it. He won both the Bull Riding and the All Around Championship, thus the TWO saddles and two buckles. He's all of 23 years old. Boy what I would have given for some of his bronc riding skills for those times I got bucked off. I suppose my Dad had me riding the colts because I would bounce off the ground better than he.
