After SAR training today and putting my crank arm back on my bike... (I went riding with Chris on Wed and got all the way to the trailhead from town and my damn pedal fell off... pretty awkward goofy looking ride back to town with one leg) I met up with Anna, Brendan and Eleanor to go to a Rodeo!  Eleanor and Anna had cowboy boots on and for the first time in a long time I saw Anna in skirt... pretty cute!  Brendan showed up in an all denim outfit and we rolled out to my first rodeo.  It was just outside of town and they had barrel racing with the "queens of the rodeo" girls, horseback riding, bull riding, and a cute egg race for the little kids.  I saw a ton of people from school there including Jan in a cowboy hat, Pam, Tiffany, Hartz, Toshi, the bucket of hair, Shilo etc.  It was really cool to see all the competitions and all the tough cowboys get their asses handed to them by the animals.  One guy even got dragged two times around the entire place by his hand still attached to the strap on the horse all twisted up.  It looked like he should have been dead but he just got up and walked it off.  Another kid flew off a bull and landed on his head.... so messed up but he decided to take a 2nd turn and got his ass handed to him again... poor guy.  He was the last one and as we left he was still hobbling around in the dirt.  Eleanor was nice enough to get a poster signed by all the rodeo queens for me which I now have stuck on our whiteboard.  After the rodeo the four of us came back and watched Die Hard in my room which Eleanor hadn't seen before.  It was a long day and a cool night but I'm happy to get to bed now cause I'm going to go for a 10 mile hike tomorrow.
