In a few short months, the local rodeo season will commence. Not that I want to participate, you see. But there is something rather exhilarating about watching supposedly sane men climb onto very large and often ill-tempered herbivores with only a small rope handle to hang on to.
A town a short drive south of Winnipeg has the only pro-rodeo in Manitoba... so in July, I intend to head on down and take in some bone jarring, spit slinging (on the bulls' part), ground shaking excitement.
Hopefully, this summer will be hot and sunny... unlike last year, when it was chilly and wet for the most part.
Hey, it's a chance to wear a cowboy hat and big belt buckle and fit right in!
