Rodeo Time!

It's rodeo time in Fairview and a staple in our community is the Fairview Wranglers Rodeo Parade.

The parade goes by and the people from the parade throw candy at the children.  These are some special kids waiting for their treats!

And of course, a visit from some clowns!

It was a great day for a parade .  This time of year always makes me think of my husband Dennis.  We live right behind the rodeo grounds so we would sit in our backyard and listen to the rodeo.  One year my husband had made a remote control skunk as a practical joke for the people that used to go to Grand Lake with us.  When we got home it's around rodeo time so we would sit out and wait for people at the rodeo dance to come walking and Dennis would run the skunk out.  We had great laughs and great memories from this time of year!

A Quick Trip to Grand.

A couple of Dennis and I's long time friends decided to run away and make a break for Grand Lake last weekend.  We left on Thursday night and came home Sunday so it was a fast mini vacation, but an oh so needed getaway.  I was a little hesititant because this is the lake that my husband and I, along with these friends and all our children, went for over 20 years.   We even brought Dennis here a couple of times after his accident.  I won't say there were no moments of melancholy, because that would be a lie, but I muddled through them and knew that he would always be a part of Honey Creek.  Honey Creek was his home away from home and I could see him everywhere.  My friends and I were determined to make new memories and have a great time and we accomplished that.  New memories, new friends, great food  and a great view, what more could we want (except Dennis).  Much love, Cheri

In memory of a really fun and awesome person!

Figuring it out.

I am trying to decide whether to continue blogging or give it up altogether.  It was an outlet to help me vent or help me when I was sad and also help me when I was happy.  I guess it can still be all those things and maybe even talk about Dennis every once in a while.I will start by saying I miss him every minute of every hour of every day, but that is to be expected since it has only been 3 months!  I celebrated an anniversary, 2 birthday's, Independence Day and a vacation without him and it is getting a little (stressing little) easier.  So I will post some photos and maybe keep this going for a little while as I am always surprised at how many stop in and visit.
My first visit to the lake after Dennis had passed away and it was beautiful!
Friends are a gift from God!  Much love, Cheri
