Yee Haw!!

That's right, it's time for the annual Farm Fair and Canadian Finals Rodeo  here in Edmonton!!  And that's no bull!! Hahahaha!! I'm volunteering 4 of the 8 days and working 4 of the 8 days!! Dave was going to take Duffy for the week and then come back on Saturday and we were going to go to the afternoon performance of the rodeo.  But he's still deep in s**t--and I mean that literally!! He's one of a 4 man crew who are cleaning out farmers' corrals and spreading the manure on their fields.  Due to various unforeseen illnesses, boo boos, and weather (none of which were Dave's fault--even the weather!!), they are still at it.  This should have been almost finished by now.  So I didn't get the cheap rodeo seats allowed to volunteers and staff.  And Dave's not going to be able to take Duffy.  While I might be away 6-7 hours a day, he's away from 8 in the morning until sometimes 8 at night.  I don't think Duffy would like that!! The earliest I start is 10, so I have time to take him for a walk.  And my work shifts start at 2 -2:45 and finish by 7:30, so that's not too bad.

I'm hoping that he might be able get here for Sunday and we can attend the Heavy Horse Pull and if he stuck around for Monday, we could see some of the 2 day Northlands Stock Dog Trials during the day and the Heritage Ranch Rodeo in the evening.  Keeping fingers crossed!!

So let's get ready to have some fun!!! See you there!!!

The crowds!!!
The thrills!!

And the spills!!
