There is a flurry of activity going on around here this week.
In addition to handling as many assignments as possible for the American Royal in Kansas City, I am in the process of promoting the Midwest Classic, a Professional Roughstock Series event in Salina, Kan. It just so happens that it’s also Justin McBride’s return to the competitive arena, so it’s a big deal.
I leave tomorrow for Duncan, Okla., and the Chisholm Trail Ram Prairie Circuit Finals Rodeo. It’s going to be a fantastic championship, with several events coming down to the wire on Saturday night before the year-end champions are known.
I’m also working on some other assignments for clients while also trying to get a handle on things for my work at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Oh, and I’ve got a few more details to finish for the Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping, which takes place Nov. 8-9 at the Lazy E Arena.
It’s this time of year when I realize my blessings so much. There are times my wife is a single mom, handling all the household duties while I hit the trail. It’s that kind of support that makes me realize that I did quite well, that God found me a wonderful woman to be my partner.
I’ve got a pretty incredible family, and it pushes me to work harder for them.
