Sun Valley

Here we are in SunValley. This is where Jim and his Siblings made some wonderful memories when they were younger. We have all come down here to celebrate with Brandon, Jim's nephew (Sister Sandy's son) who will be forty on Sunday. What a hoot. There are a ton of relatives staying in various rental houses. We are in a nice condo at Elkhorn, complete with golf, tennis, bike and hiking trails, and a huge pool and hottub. We are right below a ski lift and right on the golf course. Pretty fancy for this bunpkin!!
There are lots of plans to keep us entertained all weekend. I'm looking forward to the rodeo tonite. It feels more familiar and more Me. Karen and I went into Ketchum yesterday and wandered around the shops with other tourists and some locals. Too ritzy and too crowded for my liking. We did find a secondhand store that was fun to search through finding a few books and other treasures.
Well, off to the rodeo with this crowd of family and friends. Yee-haw!!

I watched a rodeo during week on our telly..... jebus it looks fun.... aint to sure about the cow riding bit though, and Im sure that strap looking thing around the cows hind quarters probably squeezes its nuts hence all that jumping and bucking around, poor cow :)

Sounds like you are having a super time with loved ones....... be safe..

Good luck with your bulls! We just got back from the Ute Stampede in Nephi, UT. Cotton Rosser has done that show for nearly 60 years. I completely admire the ethic that goes into the raising of rodeo stock--I'm jealous of your life, even if you think you are a poser.
