Have you decided on a costume yet? Butch is going as a biker dude. I told the husband he needs a spiked collar but he said no. Butch would hurt himself. Husband is a party pooper. He needs a leather vest too. Don't you think?
Whoa! Where have I been?? You still there?? (crickets) LOL
So we've been our usual busy around these parts. The husband is still working for Dr Pepper. He's been in the Austin area for the last year. Just got another position recently. Moving up the ladder. I'm still with the feds. Not the best of times right now but my agency is great, budgets well so I never went without a check. Yay! We moved into a larger studio for my photography early this year. Still in our small town but on the main highway. People don't seem to mind driving the 30 minutes to get there from the nearest bigger city.
Our cattle continue to do well. We just got back from Vegas yesterday. We had a yearling calf entered in the ABBI finals and a 3 year old. Our yearling won us 3rd place! Couldn't be more proud. Our 3 year old came in 6th. Not great but the competition was tough. Long Shot II won it. Of course, we no longer own him but he's still our breeding so we are happy with that.
When we arrived at the hotel to check in, they gave us our room keys. They had Long Shot II on them. Pretty cool to have the bull you raised on the room keys of the hotel.
The pens behind the hotel/casino where they house the bulls.
And we went out on the strip one night while we were there too.
Anyhow, I thought I should update anyone that actually continues to check this blog. It's just too easy to post on Facebook I guess. You people that don't have Facebook, and you know who you are, should really make at least a fake account to keep up with us. ;)
