Don the Rodeo rider!!!!!!!!!
I found this old clipping in amongst our photos... circa 1978...

No this is not when Don had his accident...this was just another "interesting" day in his life...

I hope you can see the smiles of those still holding the gate as Don was about to hit the ground after being thrown by this poddy calf...

No he had never ridden a cow, bull nor poddy calf before this day...but on a dare...a favourite ploy of all men to see someone undone...he got up on this calf and off he went.. in about 1 second...but he had a brand new pair of jeans and a pure white new sloppy Joe on...

Some time later he arrived home in someone elses Shorts and top... with no explanation...till this little piccie appeared in our local paper I was blissfully unaware although perturbed at the change of attire for the worse...

Don never wore shorts and these were a trifle short...a little ridiculuous with his little white leggies sticking out...so virginally...never seen the sun before...

Oh my God it sure has been an interesting if alarming life... Posted by Picasa

9.9 for style.
2.3 for technical merit

so the clothes he was wearing through this rather terrifying ordeal must have been ripped right off of him...yikes...short shorts...how could he wear them after that experience? :))))

and you were able to have children after this ride???

Ah, derring-do and what-not!!! Quite a cowboy you’ve got there!

I have a sneaking suspicion, by the way, that Bush, Sr. dared Bush, Jr. to start the war in Iraq, naturally these dare type things are very powerful.
