postheadericon Longmire is Back! Season 4 is Available on Netflix NOW!

Longmire Season 1 at Red Barn Blue SkiesLongmire Season 2 at Red Barn Blue Skies Longmire Season 3 at Red Barn Blue Skies

There is a lot of happy dancing going on around this place tonight. One of our all-time favorite TV series is back! Longmire’s long awaited Season 4 is available TODAY on Netflix.

Hubby and I did a marathon viewing of the first 3 episodes last year when we finally got internet service that would stream Netflix. We were hooked on the series after the very first episode, only to find that it had been cancelled.  What the heck is wrong with the idiots at A & E? (This isn’t the only series we love that they have cancelled..)


Anyways, Netflix to the rescue! They were smart enough to see the absolute obsessed cult following this show has and did some negotiating to order the 4th season. Whoo hoo, yay Netflix! So today is the day, we are finally getting to have another fix of one our favorite cowboy lawmen and his trusty sidekicks. We are re-watching the last episode of season 3 first to reacquaint ourselves with the happenings and then we’re good to go. It’s going to be a late night here. Pop that popcorn hubby.

postheadericon Another Conquest for Swifty & Cattle Sorting

Mr. MoonCat’s horse Swifty has yet another admirer……

Does this photo make
my nose look BIG?

 

He really is a looooooooong horse

A couple of weeks ago the hubby’s folks stayed a few days with us and we dragged them along to a cattle sorting with us and my Dad.  Mr. MoonCat talked his own Dad into getting up on Swifty for a few photos.  They got along really well and make quite the pair don’t they?  ~Mr. MoonCat took these photos so Swifty can’t blame me for the big nose shot… 🙂

So now I’m thinking we need to get the hubby’s Mom up on Swifty too!  We’ll have to work on that when they come up to see us again at the end of the month…
Here are some other photos from the cattle sorting that day:
Everyone waiting for their turn

The hat’s on backwards….

Dad and Petey sorting the cattle….fast!

Sorry, no action shots of me this time.  But..I did end up placing 5th out of 102 teams!!  Not bad for a rusty old fat woman and a rather hyper horse 🙂  We had a lot of fun that day surrounded by family, friends, and furry creatures.  Great food finished off an almost perfect day.

What happens when you combine a Renaissance Faire, four crazy talented guys with too much time on their hands, and a hot sultry day?  You get:

I was first introduced to these guys about five years ago when I worked with Mr. MoonCat (then just Mr. Maybe) at a Reniassance Faire.  He wanted me to watch his friends’ act.
Dusty, Bogus, & RJ
I was hooked after watching these clowns perform their amazing antics.  They are outstanding jugglers and comedians, plus just all-around fun guys.  The stands – or haybales today, are always packed when these guys take the stage.

Dusty with “Sara”

 

One of the funniest things to happen was in the last performance of the day.  Part of their act includes Dusty finding a willing volunteer – female and cute of course, from the audience.  Normally the young ladies throw themselves at the guys to have a chance to be up on stage with them.  Um, not today.. Poor Dusty got shot down twice by two of them before he just gave up and came on stage with “Sara”.
It was hysterical!  RJ didn’t do very well at keeping his composure when he was introduced to the volunteer, but he did great job with the spiel that they normally use as he gave “Sara” the same instructions he would a living, breathing non-straw bale woman.  Of course, Dusty and Tommy had their work cut out for them making sure “Sara” turned and ducked when necessary during the act.

“Sara” and the Boys
If you ever get a chance to watch these guys at a Renissance Faire or any of the many places they perform, don’t miss out.  They are guaranteed to make you laugh, with them or definitely at them!
