Congratulations to Jenna on her recent success!!!

Dear Skinner Family -

Just wanted to send along a post show camp update:   

Jenna (who you may remember as having the WILD red heifer!) showed at progress shows (in Fort Bend County) for the past two weekends and came away with a Reserve in Junior Showmanship the first weekend, and then this past weekend won a buckle for Junior Showmanship champion in the first show, then reserve in the second show (only behind her friend and fellow Skinner show camper Mahlia)!  

As you can guess, she was REALLY excited to win the buckle, and wanted me to pass along the news to you! 
She and the heifer still have lots of work and practicing ahead of them, but now she's really inspired :).

Thanks again for getting her off to a great start, and we'll look forward to seeing you again next year!

Best Regards,

Rhonda and Jenna Le Blanc

Joke of the Day

An Antartian boy and his father were visiting a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and back together again.
The boy asked his father, "What is this, Father?" The father [never having seen an elevator] responded "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is."
While the boy and his father were watching wide-eyed, an old lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room.
The walls closed and the boy and his father watched small circles of lights with numbers above the walls light up. They continued to watch the circles light up in the reverse direction.
The walls opened up again and a beautiful 24-year-old woman stepped out. The father said to his son, "Go get your mother."

Joke of the Day

A lady was walking down the street to work and she saw a parrot on a perch in front of a pet store.
The parrot said to her, "Hey lady, you are really ugly." Well, the lady is furious!
She stormed past the store to her work.
On the way home she saw the same parrot and it said to her, "Hey lady, you are really ugly." She was incredibly ticked now.
The next day the same parrot again said to her, "Hey lady, you are really ugly."
The lady was so ticked that she went into the store and warned she would sue the store and kill the bird. The store manager replied profusely and promised he would make sure the parrot didn't say it again.
When the lady walked past the store that day after work the parrot called to her, "Hey lady."
She paused and said,"Yes?"
The bird said, "You know."
