..... Friday I went to the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo held here in Denver each January. I went with my two "Friday movie going" girlfriends and we had a fun time. The stock show highlights anything and everything cowboy and livestock. We walked through the pen area that holds all the prize cattle. It was a smelly place full of activity that is so foreign to any city folk but a second home to those who come to show and/or auction their fine specimens.
We also attended the rodeo. This is the heartbeat of the stock show and a show I've come to love. I'm a city girl, but I've come to love watching the horses and horsemanship that is showcased. I find it amazing entertainment.
..... Saturday, Don and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary. Not only have we been married this many years, but we've been together nearly 34 years - and blessed years they have been. God knew what He was doing when he placed two young teenagers in the same Algebra and P.E. class. The rest, as they say, is history. (Pictures from our wedding can be found on last year's post.)
We went out to dinner at Red Lobster and then went over to the movie theater and saw Slumdog Millionaire. I was somewhat surprised to realize, from my Aloha Friday post, that not many go to the movies or care what movies are out there, thus, not caring what movies I see. But I will continue to post about the good movies I see because they are a part of my life and I want to record these events. Slumdog Millionaire was a very good movie with a great story.
..... We woke up this morning to a city bathed in white. A light snow frosted the trees and shrubbery which was beautiful to look at. Too bad it was so darn cold. I did brave the frigid air to take some photos and have included a few here.
