Saskatoon Saskatchewan Day #4

Howdy Chuckwagon Friends

Its been a long day.  Morning chores, breakfast, a quick nap for some, packing for me and a couple of visits with some friends, all before the Chuckwagon Races started at 2:15 pm.  An early race day.   We depart tomorrow for Medicine Hat, so we pack up as much as we possibly can, so we can get an early start on the day tomorrow.  Supposed to be 26 degrees down south tomorrow.



I’m sure missing my snuggles with our new grandson baby Ryker.  I’m so thankful for FaceTime, as we can see each other.   Today was Kaylee’s birthday, Rykers mom, our 2nd daughter.  We chatted for a bit, and I got to talk baby talk to him.  I won’t see him for another few weeks yet.


Snuggles with Speedy

While harnessing Speedy today, I took a selfie of him and I.  We’ve had Speedy for some time now and he is a favorite in the lineup.  A little lovin goes a long ways!

Fourth turn ttrain

Cody had a pretty good show this weekend. Today he was 23rd and ended up 16th overall.  He’s heading on up!


Long Gone!

Rick came flying off the 4 barrel this afternoon!  And was he flying!!!  The Team was “dustin on er!” as one might say.  But then, Rick was pulling around the 3rd and 4th turn.  Speedy somehow got off beat with his steps and wobbled just a bit. All things were good but it cost us some time.  It definitely could have been a day money run.  Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda!  Just glad all is safe.

The hook was Nickle (LL) Speedy (RL) Law (LW) and Trick (RW) with Cole riding Andy holding the leaders and Chanse on Stadium.  The boys did well all weekend.

A Shout Out goes to the Vern and Lisa Nolin family at capturing their first show on the WPCA tour!  Good for them.


A nice little conversation

Well the chuckwagon wasn’t quite as muddy as yesterday, but Rick likes to keep it clean at all times.  Our little friend Talance hung out to chat with Rick for a bit.


Taking a break

There is always time for kids.  My little friend Talance and I took a break from all the chores and just sat to enjoy each others company, a beverage and a candy or two.

Tomorrows a busy day on the road to the bright lights of Medicine Hat.  Looking forward to some more beautiful weather down south.

P.S.  Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.
