A whole lot of Bull!

We had a very wet weekend in Rangiora at Bull Riding School this weekend
Camden had a ...'excuse the pun' ..ball!
Almost harder than riding the bull is getting onto it in the first place, If you get out of the 'box' without breaking both your legs then your half way there!

Shame you cannot hear the bull snorting...its quite scary to watch your youngest doing this very crazy thing!

The goal is to stay on the Bull for 8 seconds,

and your only aloud to use one hand...crazy!

Cam is so lucky this bull is a young fella and has not grown his horns yet!

Never ever linger when you fall off!!

Camden now needs lots of gear, I can see this 'hobby' is going to be costly. Cowboy boots are at the top of his list, a hard riding helmet is at the top of my, and Andrews list, and I cannot believe they learn this crazy caper without having to first put a helmet on!

Today it was back to work, and then home to unpack our bags as we never got home until late last night.
Camden got his restricted drivers licence duing the school holidays,so it looks like Andrew and I will be staying home for a whlie now as our van is never here!
Back tomorrow with some scrappng, for now its off to bed we go because us old folk need our sleep! Night night.

Here is my finished latest painting
This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
