And.... they're off!

And... They're Off!

It's Tip Your Hat Auction Day -- and we're praying the skies don't unload buckets of water on our parade!

They're grey... but not swollen.... and it's real hard to tell in this here cowtown just what the skies will do. They're stubborn and unpredictable, wilful and wily. Just like a thoroughbred at the gate. Biting at the bit to get out the chute and tear up the Infield only to fall back of the posse on the homeward stretch, you never know what the end run will be with weather in Calgary.

So.... we pray. And hope and make plans for 'IN CASE OF RAIN'.

We've also got Angela Knight and the DO Crew at the shelter this morning, serving up a stampede breakfast and heaps of smiles. Gotta git goin' to be there to give them a big ole' western, "YAHOO!"

It's a busy day in the west.

Hay's a growin' (though the sun ain't shinin') and I gotta run!

See ya'll later. Ya'hear!

It looks like you're off to a fun day ... may it be perfect in every way.
