PBR Time

                           Yes, I'm a little bit country.  Last night, six of us went to see the Blue Def Velocity Tour of Professional Bull Riding at Verizon Arena.  It was fun to go and see the wild action, because you never know what will happen.
                           As is true for me, you never know if it'll be a good night or not with my cough.  The lighter fluid they used to create the fire on the dirt caused a lot of fumes.  My air machine concentrates the room air into forced air so I had a struggle with the chemically strong fumes going into my mask.  My dad and I did have to leave early, but we enjoyed the first hour n half.
                          Some might say, 'you just shouldn't go if you have to leave early or if something could happen' to which my reply would be 'you stay home, I'm going.'  I was born a risk-taker.  Life is about living and making the most out of what you're given.  I was given 1.5 hours of exciting fun last night and it was worth every penny and cough it took out of me.
                         Whether in bull riding or life, every 8 seconds count so make the most of it.


  1. I am glad you let me go with you. Good time..............Love ......Dad

  2. "In bull riding or life, every 8 seconds count"--That is an eye opener! It is true a lot can happen in 8 seconds -- your life can change in even shorter time than that; that is why everyone needs to be ready to meet their Maker regardless or age, health, wealth, etc. Mom

  3. I'm trying to make the most of it. My admiration for you grows daily. Love, grace

  6. Very good, Angie. We had a great time, didn't we?! You are absolutely right; every 8 seconds count and I think you are doing a good job of illustrating that! Your zest for life will encourage others.

  7. Coach Bear Bryant lived with the philsophy that we are given 86,400 seconds each day and we cannot save them, and therefore we must use
    them and use them wisely, we may never know when we are near the end of those seconds. Spend them well, as you do, when time is up, heaven awaits. Love You ...Dad
