July 4th!

July 4th holds a special place for me and my family. Most people don't know it but my dad and his entire family escaped to America then fought a bloody war to earn their citizenship. It goes without saying that July 4th is a serious holiday for us.

It's always nice to see the rodeo treat the flag with the respect it deserves. Yeah; sometimes if you look closely you'll see me getting a little "misty" as Jesse gallops by with Old Glory.

Bullriding at the Double M Rodeo - June 29, 2018

Wow those bulls were rank! I was standing over one of those animals shooting the team roping and I don't mind telling you I was good and scared. Lester has brought some real wild buckers this year and I have the photos to prove it!
