Yeh it�s a story that never changes. Spring eternal spring when a young person�s fancy turns to my first rodeo. Up in ranching country come springtime and everybody and everything turns frisky! We get up a little earlier. Go to bed a little earlier � or later as the case may be and we start laying our plans for rodeo season � especially the youngins as the old timers refer to them ~:0)
Springtime in ranch country finds young cowpokes out stretching their lariats while the cowgirls are stretching out new jeans. Tack is prepared. Horses curried. Cattle rustled � Ha! Generally it�s a time of new calves, colts and a quickening of life in general around the place. And then there�s RODEO!
Yeh rodeo � when cowboys and cowgirls and ranch folk in general gather at arenas across the region to catch up on old stories, old friends and new loves. There are quarter-horse barrel racing, cattle roping, livestock shows all with a payoff of some kind whether cash or scholarships � it�s straight up FUN ~:0)
As we here at VivaChas! strolled the grounds at some of these wild and wooly events we heard the same phrase repeated by fresh faces over and again � It�s My First Rodeo. Now the young pokes might be too proud to admit their first time � knowing how young men are � but the glowing, golden girls of the rodeo had no qualms in sharing that secret pleasure of new things.
See what U miss by being couched by video-games and reality-shows. Ur missing life. Ur missing adventure and Ur missing love shared by the finest bunch of folks U might ever meet � get out there! Don�t be Proud � - Go to Ur First Rodeo ~:0) VivaChas!
