Rodeo Night

I'm not the Quilting Cowgirl for nothing. Last night Joe and I went to the World's Toughest Cowboy, which is part of the World's toughest Rodeo on Spike TV. It was so much fun. There were 12 cowboys competing for the title of toughest cowboy. The three events are bareback bronc riding, saddle bronc riding, and bull riding. After the bronc riding there was an appearance by Whiplash and the Cowboy Monkey. Everyone was so excited about the monkey herding sheep, it was really the dog that should have been getting all of the applause. It was very entertaining!! Then they had mutton busting, where kids were riding sheep. They were so cute. They had on their helmets and vest just like the cowboys. The bull riding was the final event. That is one of my favorites, I watch the PBR a lot on TV. Two of our favorite vacations have been to Cheyenne for the Rodeo. This rodeo wasn't as exciting but it was still a great "date night" for us. After the rodeo there was a concert by Whiskey Falls. We only stayed for a part of it, we aren't huge county music fans.

How wonderful. Where does one find a rodeo in Atlanta? I knew that you like western fabric, but didn't know you attended the rodeo. Yeeehaa! Sounds like a great evening.
