It may not have been a record turn out. According to Asphalt Cowboy Jerry Scheller..still recovering…says his initial unofficial guess is that 9,800 or more turned out for the Asphalt Cowboys downtown Redding pancake breakfast. As always the flap-jacks were a flippin and the mouths a flying open as many of us including your neighbors were enjoying the fun of gathering for the annual Rodeo week tradition. The pancakes were perfect and who needed entertainment for the rodeo atmosphere was present and the cowboys kept the crowd alive while herding everyone through the serving lines.

Congratulations to the Asphalt Cowboys and the Redding Rodeo staff as well as the City of Redding and all those who worked to make the event the success it was. Thanks to everyone who attended showing your awesome support in keeping this long standing tradition alive. See ya at the rodeo!

Gpa_040.jpgIn the spirit of Redding Rodeo Week….here are some photos my brother took last week where on Thursday nights at Chisholm Trail Cowboy Church near Enid Oklahoma they have a great time.Gpa_044.jpgA Nashville Grandpa brought his 3-year old to perform with him. That’s a realistic toy guitar. He had a wow-wow pedal hooked up to it so he could realistically pretend.

Very cute. Wowed the crowd. This was how we spend our Thursday nights at Chisholm Trail Cowboy Church near Enid Oklahoma.Gpa_051.jpg
