Weekend off!

Well, we have this weekend off. We have been busy getting ready for PA expo. Tommie has been busy shoeing 14 horses with our farrier, Rich Brunner. There's a ropin' here at Double G this weekend too. We did all our fall orders for the western store in the past 3 days too. (So much for the weekend off) but tonight we are on our way to see Rascal Flatts and Darius Rucker. We just saw Jake Owen and Randy Houser after the rodeos, but this show should be pretty good. We love Hootie. Hope he sings a few classics not just new stuff. I'll let ya know! Ride fast... Take chances! karen

Josh and Janna's new house

We went to visit Tommie's best friend, josh Lyons, (son of John Lyons)and his family at their new home and facility in Tennessee. All I can say is WOW! As you can see by the photo that it snowed in TN the day we got there. Jana just had a new baby named Ryder. He is so adorable. Austin and Johnny are gettin bigger and having fun. Tommie, Josh and the boys jumped and a 4 wheeler and pulled a tube around the outdoor arena while they tried to hang on. The was a lot of snow, so the had a great time. School was cancelled for the boys, but Josh still had his Certification classes. It was awesome hanging out with them. Now they are 529 miles away from us instead of 1200!
