I picked three things off of my Life To-Do List to accomplish this year. The first one was to memorize the world capitals. Check.
The second was to learn how to lasso. And guess what - Check! I went to a hoe-down themed church activity last night (which goes to show how easy it is to forget St. Patrick's Day when it's non-drinkers planning a party) and there was a place where you could practice lassoing things. I am happy to report that I am a natural at it. I got the horns on my first try and every single time after that. I also learned the proper way to hold the rope and also the terms for each part of the rope, which I immediately forgot but feel that that information would be irrelevant when you have a rogue calf that needs rustling. Now I need to move on to trick lassoing. I want to be able to spin one around and jump through it. Like Steve Martin in Three Amigos.
The last on my list: Fly in a bi-plane. I'm thinking August.
