Last night in Wickenburg was cold, it rained most of the night, and the wind rocked ol' Betsy like a cradle. I was up early and off to the parade, where I photographed non stop for about two hours, then to the Seven Bar Cafe, downtown, where I snagged a parking spot, for a lunch of fried chicken and mashed potatoes (an exception, but what the heck, it was cold and I've been behaving for days).
By the time I finished lunch, it was time for the rodeo and another two and a half or three non stop shooting hours. It was so cold, and I'd been standing on uneven ground for so long, that when I turned to leave I could hardly walk, and must have looked like some doddering old man. And I'm not even 72, yet!
I reported right to Betsy and, because there was no time to download any of the day's research, I painted this Longhorn Study that I've been sneaking up on ever since I visited my friend and ace mechanic Austin Stockdale's place on the ranch in Victorville.
Tomorrow is going to be a long day of catching up on image management, probably in the library, if it's open.
