Colton- Just Horsing Around




I have been avoiding talking about our local grandson for fear of sounding like I was bragging.. He is a pleasure to be around. He'll do anything we ask of him and with a smile. He has a good sense of humor and cares not what others think. He's very comfortable being himself.  Colton is 14 years old, 6'1 1/2 and weighs about 210. He's a pretty good athlete as well and a Boy Scout.
He used some of his money from working on the farm to purchase a horse head mask a few months ago. No particular reason, he just wanted one. He gets it out from time to time, but not often.  I saw him walking down our main street with it.  Everyone, young and old alike were honking and laughing and waving at him. He just waved and kept walking. He made their day and vice versa.
A month later he was standing along the fence at our rodeo, wearing it. I can't help but laugh when I see him wearing it because it happens so seldom and it always seems to be at the right time.
He recently had a friend over and they went out by Mom's horses and he had his buddy take a picture. He captioned it and I got it as a text this morning about 6 AM. He was lifting weights at school and sent it between sets.  I had to pull off of the road until I quit laughing. This kid has a great sense of humor.

He looks like a fine young man...and it's no wonder you are proud of him.

You could enter him in the Kentucky Derby! ;)

Take care, Cliff. :)

I must say6, that made my day...and then some. What a great kid. He seems like a pleasure to be around. You should be very proud and talk about him more.

Colton sounds like a chip off the old grandblock.

I worry about the both of you.
You for reading text messages while driving. To your credit you did pull over to laugh.
Colton for texting in school and especially in class. I would have been in trouble for that if they'd of had texting back then.

I love the picture Next he will wanting to be eating granola out there with the horses.

Cliff, I have a favor to ask. My latest blog entry is about a pesky weed, but Cliff and I neither one know the name of it. I'll bet you could tell me what it is.

That exceptional humor is definitely in the gene pool, Cliff.

Very funny indeed! Very nice young man as well. You shouldn't feel it is bragging, something about if it isn't a lie it isn't bragging or maybe it was just okay, a sign in my dad's workshop.
