Wayne

 

The competition / birthday party was given by Wayne and Sue Kocisco at their "W bar M" arena, just outside of Flagstaff. Just the nicest, nicest people!  So genuine!  Billy Bob had no idea they'd planned all this and he was just stunned when he arrived at their place to find so many of his friends and ropin' buddies there with their horses - ready to ride - and to celebrate his 90 years.

Yo...Dude!

Did he just happen to have his horse with him, then, Elizabeth?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile!
Always, Ray, the horse is always with him! I'm surprised he doesn't ride him in to my office for his eye exams! smile

He looks proud to be a horse rider Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: As well he should be... he's quite good!
The wild west is still alive in people like Wayne. What a lovely birthday present for Billy Bob.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Absolutely!!!
Any number with a zero after it is VERY IMPORTANT, especially when it's a birthday. I'm so glad he was surprised!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile I agree!!!
Billy Bo certainly was surprised! The people he stays with had told him they were going to Wayne's to ride- but that's all. Norma suggested he put on a nice shirt. He said "Why? Wayne's seen me in old duds..." She said, "Oh Billy, just put on a nicer shirt!" smile
He has his snuff box and a pen in his pocket. The man is prepared for everything.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Ready to go! smile
a true cowboy
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Absolutely!

He looks all business Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: When he wasn't competing, he was the field judge... thus the flag.
Smashing portrait, Elizabeth, horse and rider as one...smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Frank! I think Wayne would rather ride than walk any day!
Excellent portrait Elizabeth! What a character.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Richard! He truly is!

So it is Wayne who rides that white horse that you like so much Elizabeth....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Actually no - I hadn't thought about that when I posted this! Wayne's horse is sure pretty... but the horse I showed on Tuesday belongs to a guy called Junior!
