And I worked on the palp cage today and finally got it done. Windy. Not to hot, but warm.
When we came in for lunch, Cindy had some soapy water in the sink (she wasn’t feeling well so stayed home from work) Sam decided to show me how to blow bubbles. And then he played in the sing and I helped him with the bubbles. This was the outcome…
Then we had to make him into a knobhead…
Not sure how to make him into a mo mo… (inside joke)
I drove to Philip Saturday morning and met u with Ken and then we headed over to Ft Pierre. they had a nice set up at the Stanley County fairgrounds, I guess they call it the Exposition Center now… We both performed that afternoon and then a group of us headed out to the Cattlemen’s Club east of Pierre a few miles. One of the best steaks I have ever had! They gave us gift cards for performing and then we had tickets to the Don Edwards show that evening. I had not heard Don sing 97 at Elko. He’s aged, but you never know it to watch him play and sing. We went back to the motel, had a good BS session and to bed. Got up Sunday morning, met up and had breakfast with Slim and Darlene and headed back home. I think I got here about noon. Took a short nap and then when Cindy got home, we headed up to Spearfish. Met Chance and Hope and kids and went to Mass. Got to see Fr Tyler for just a minute, went and ate and came home and got to bed about 9. Good weekend and the next one coming up at Hot Springs should as much fun and maybe more, if that is possible. Met some new friends and hope to see them this weekend!
Not too hot, not too windy. I was getting ready to work on making a palp cage this morning when Delbert showed up with an invite to ride along with him, so took it quick before he changed his mind!
We stopped over at a neighbors who had been having a dog trail. It was over but we got in some good visiting with Bud and maybe found a dog… yeah, I know, like I need another one, but this is a good Border Collie started and priced right. And two is better than one when I am moving these cattle around by myself.
Then we drove over to Del’s summer pasture and checked on cattle and water. Came back to Punkin Center and ate at the cafe and Delbert’s daughter in law came along with his grandson so we had fun with them.
Got home and tried to take a snooze but Spike went to howling when Cindy pulled in so that was the end of that! So I went out and cut and welded on the palp cage until supper time.
Been on the phone all night. I am going to meet Ken Cook tomorrow as we have a gig in Ft Pierre in the afternoon.
Made from burlap. Bad lighting so really doesn’t show them too good.
