Yeehaw!

well its that time of year again...for the calgary stampede! the entire city goes cowboy crazy! your accountant is suddenly decked out in full regalia, right down to the spurs on his boots. calgary really gets into it, with free pancake breakfasts all over the city, every day and every window downtown decorated with bucking broncos and bullriders. not to mention the excitement of the chuckwagon races! we live a short distance from the grounds and are able to watch the fireworks from our window every night. of course, if you're trying to go to bed early it can be a little annoying :) all in all, i LOVE stampede! the entire city becomes one big welcome mat and people from all over the world come to enjoy. check it out and maybe come for a visit to beautiful alberta: http://calgarystampede.com/

Go by the artists' salon and visit my buddy, Michelle Grant, and her lovely equine art. I just shipped the dark one of the horse being groomed after morning exercise back to her.

Wow - how fun! I just had an art show in Calgary. I could not make it out there and now I am even more bummed knowing that this was going on at the time!!
