Suzanne, Linda and Lynn called this evening and in the conversation I found out I have been wrong on how Cochise finished in some of the burro races this summer. He did finish 6th and but he also had a 5th........!!!
Muzzy finished 6th to Cochise's 5th in that race, but he also finished 2nd in one of the other races. When Lynn told me about it, I remembered it, Muzzy even led for awhile as I now recall. One of the effects of getting older is having trouble remembering things, but you'd think I'd remember a 2nd place finish, that's pretty good...!! Of course a lot of times I can't remember why I go from one room to another so I guess I'm lucky to remember at all.......LOL
They are hoping the truck will get fixed tomorrow as planned and they will be able to leave early Tuesday morning.
We are now closed for tours until October 19th. There's a lot of behind the scenes prep going on with races, parades, or really any type of entertainment. The entertainment might only take minutes, but there could be hours of preparation to make it happen. There's not going to be a lot of time between now and the race in Tombstone next Saturday. Then a few days later they'll load up donkeys and head to California for a race the next week-end. I also have a car race the 17th...........so..........it just seemed to make sense to cancel all tours until all this hyper activity is over.
