Rick had such a great day...he transferred from his bed to his wheelchair a couple of times with minimum assistance from me. And he was trying to talk a lot today...but I don't read lips too well so I'm not sure what he was saying most of the time.
The WCRR is over and TRR did not win, but everyone made it home with no broken bones or bandages, although Stoney may be a little sore after riding his bronc yesterday. He scored an 82 on a horse that had not been ridden in a ranch rodeo...you can see a picture of it at www.wrca.org under WCRR results, Saturday pictures. There is also a picture of Brogan Rankin and TRR's calf branding run. The WRCA has a foundation that donates to cowboys in crisis, and I want everyone to know that the Thompson Ranch, TRR and several others nominated Rick to receive an assistance check. We received the check back in July and it was such a relief. The Working Ranch Cowboys Foundation is a great organization to donate to.
God bless everyone who has prayed for Rick and given in any way. And where in the world is Hop Bottom, PA? I've told Rick he has folks praying for him from his family in Ojai, CA to Buck Kerns in South Carolina...and now Hop Bottom, PA, too! We are so blessed!
