The Buckle!!

Won on February 5, 2000

Thanks for all the congratulations, and for letting me do a bit of bragg'n.

I'd like to thank my husband, Danny. He got my colt my working well enough that this was possible. I couldn't have done as well if were not for him. Also, I dedicate this buckle to my Father, Shorty Hudson, who died Feb. 3, 1995. He taught me how to rope and ride many years ago. But, I gotta admit...if it takes me as long to win another as it did between the time I won my last buckle until now, I will be 98 years old! [42 years between buckles]

Life is what you make of it, and I choose to enjoy it.

Photos of A.W. Clark, my partner on this win, and I are on another page, along with a photo of my two brothers and I. That photo was taken at the Possee grounds, Salinas, CA., about 1947.



It didn't take another 42 years, just a couple of months!

I was the happy winner of the four steer draw pot buckle, heeling, at the ATRA in Kerman on July 10, 2000. Thanks, Tracy Summers, you turned two for me. But you already knew that, as you won the header's buckle, congratulations to you, friend.
