This bull was the first one out. I had been taking shots of him while he was still penned and the rider was getting mounted because he was bellowing. And doing a fair amount of spitting too. At one point, he focused on me and the camera (and possibly the shutter noise.) After he rid himself of his bull rider, he charged straight for me. Rick and I were sitting on the ground right outside the corral. This is the last shot I took before I rolled back several feet. Rick didn't wait, he rolled back right away, especially as it dawned on him he was wearing a bright orange baseball cap. :D
One of those moments which highlight the danger of bullriding. Joey was okay, just limping a bit afterwards.
The 8th shot is my favourite. You can just see that bull thinking "that arse is right in front of me..."
Two little spiders had a meal nicely wrapped and waiting, when this little wasp came along and decided to help himself.
Because I blog my friend Judith's garden fairly often, and generally call the post "Judith's Garden" or have that in the text and tags, she made the sign (2nd shot) out of bits of ceramic that have been dug up in her garden.

Melroe is closing its doors, and moving the Bismarck plant to the one in Gwinner. Rick will probably be employed through January. Hopefully, anyway. Now there's going to be a bloody fight over all the people like Rick, who have worked almost 20 years, to 20 years to over 20 years and are looking at being cheated out of their pension. Oh what fun. All I have to say is...Fuck.
