Serene Scenery Sunday

Greetings to all!  It's me, Mags!  What could be more serene than one last loop through the rodeo/fairgrounds before everyone heads home?!?  Let's get walking - and find that serenity! 

This guy was not only very serene-looking, but he was one of our favorites:

Horse and sunrise

Ragnar especially liked him! 

After we walked around a bit, Dad stayed with us while Mom went into one of the 4-H buildings.

"Tell the baby sheeps 'ha roo' for us!"
"See if any-sheep wants to come home with us!!"

That's where the younger animals were. No pups were allowed in there for some bizarre reason.   Here are a couple of Mom's favorites, the baby sheeps and a goat:

Are they all adorable or what?!?!

After that, we walked around for a bit.  Ragnar went over to see his calf friends:

"Hi, cow-puppies!  Everybody doing well this morning?!?"

Both Ragnar and I love the horses, maybe especially Ragnar!  We just loved these two:


I was anxious to go see the sheeps.  I just LOVE the sheeps!!!

"I wasn't sure you'd all still be here!  It's so good to see ewe!"

Ha!  Get it?!?  "Ewe"?  

Ragnar came over to see them, too. I may have convinced him we need to adopt a sheep.

"Would any of you like to come live at our house?"
"How much room do you take up in the bed?"

Oddly enough, Mom didn't think it was a good idea.  Can't blame a girl for trying.

And ... then it was time to bid a fond farewell to this year's Kaw Valley Rodeo.

"See everybody next year!!!"
"Thanks for the memories!  We loved seeing all of you!"

What a wonderful few days it's been! Thanks for coming along with us!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  1. How fun that you got to meet all those animals up close. Too bad you couldn't convince your mom to take a sheep home. Maybe you need to get her interested in some yarn art like crochet instead of quilting so she would have a reason to have her own sheep.

  2. It looks like you pups got to meet lots of new furiends. I bet they're telling all their buddies back home about the cool pups they met!
