The Never Ending Pajama Party

There is a facebook page called the Traveling Pajamas group.  It was started by myself and my "Ex-wife" (another story for another day) Jamie.  Jamie's sister sent her the pajamas for Christmas a few years ago.  Jamie opened the package and thought it was the best joke she had ever seen because the pj's were hideous. She called her sister, laughing her butt off, and told her how funny she was for coming up with such a clever joke.

I believe the response went something like this, " do you mean,so funny?  It wasn't supposed to be a joke, I bought a pair for myself just like them?  You don't like them?"

This of course made the joke even funnier, and since then the pajama's have been worn by many people around the globe.  If you put them on, you have to get your picture taken in them.  Some people have done so less than willingly, others can't wait to get them on to have their picture taken....and some like to up the ante and come up with something that has not been done yet.

Here are some of the pictures that have been taken so far

This is Jamie, my "Ex-wife" in Oregon

SOA aint got nuthin over my son! 

Those are just a small portion of the pics that have been taken of these pajamas.  But since I am one of those people who likes to "up the ante"  I knew it was time to call in reinforcements.  I needed to find someone with as good a sense of humor as myself and Jamie, someone who knows no fear, someone with a great sense of adventure. A wild child in the true sense of the word.

This required a special touch and I knew just who to enlist into the Pajama Ranks.....

Brown Eyed Cowgirl!  

When I told her the story and that it was time to up the ante, she was all for it.  After all, they have been around the block a few times, but they have yet to go to the rodeo.....or a barrel race. 

She was willing, heck almost excited, to wear them in a barrel run.  I was excited to see it, and other people who were there pretty much thought we were insane. While we are still debating that issue, Click here to watch the run. 

After her run, while I was watching the other gals I came up with another brilliant idea..

He was a great sport and the crowd had a great laugh

Then later in the day we headed to Globe for a little exploring.  We found some cool stores and a gorgeous old church.  And then we saw this....

Talk about the perfect photo op!!!!!

But then BEC being who she is, had to up the ante again.  This is why I love this woman!  

Seriously Guys!  I've watched it 20 times and I still laugh.  Talk about the coolest of cool!  

After that we went back to the rodeo, and my biggest regret was that I forgot the pajamas in the room because I know we could have got the rodeo clown to wear them.  Plus there were probably several other missed shots as well.  

Oh well, such is life, and I'm sure there will be more to show soon, as Jamie will be here on the 30th of May.  

Here are a couple of other pictures of the rodeo. 

I fell in love with this big old jug head. 

I wish I had had my good camera for this instead of my cell. 
Something I found out yesterday is that a very good friend of mine was sitting right nest to us at the rodeo, but we haven't seen each other in 20 years so we didn't recognize each other.  Craziness I say! 

So now we are back home and back to work and my crazy friend is headed home in the morning.  It has been a great winter hanging out with her, and I will miss her. But we are already planning out next year, and I, for one, cannot wait.  

In 2 days I get to visit with my grand daughter who I have not seen in a year, and in June I get to fly home to WY to see my littlest grandson who is a year old now.   In the mean time I need to get to riding, and training, and conditioning.  

Starting tomorrow! 


  1. Oh my God! That is so funny. All of it. Especially the cactus. Didn't that hurt?

    1. I wasn't actually sitting on it, just above it.

  2. You know what happened?...I messed up and did a rain/snow dance instead of a running dance. So my horse stayed in western pleasure mode and it SNOWED in Colorado. WTH?...(sigh) I guess I am out of touch with my native side. Hahahahahaha

    Had lots of fun with you this winter. I can't wait until next winter. :-). I see many more adventures for us. :-D

    1. Better get back in synch when you go home this summer, cuz its Frosty's time to run like the wind...and snow...we can do without that crap! LOL

      Oh yes, this is just the beginning, my friend!

  3. sounds like great fun ! and what a way to wrap up BEC's time in AZ!!! you guys are a hoot!

  4. What a lot of fun! I'm still shaking my head over the rain/snow dance......

  5. Looks like you guys wrapped it up in style. The rain /snow dance? We could use it here if it will help take the wind out of the picture...
