The Desert Bar Boss!

My desert riding group has a monthly dinner social during the season. This year I was the Chuck Boss which means I make all the arrangements for every event we have that has a bar or food. Making the arrangements is the easy part...I did this for a living for 20 years. It's dealing with...the members that can get a bit tricky at times. Of course it would have helped if I had been given a list of expectations before my term on the board...I hate it when I feel I am not doing the best I can.

Last season when I was considering taking on this responsibility... The Bossman tried to tell me that it probably was not going to be...easy for me but I decided to take my turn on the board and just Cowgirlthefuckup and do it! (25 cents in the cuss jar) During my talks with the Bossman he agreed to be the bartender for the next season. He had done this job for years for the group and had retired from that job 2 years earlier. I also hired the Bossman's son-in law to be my caterer for the season. This was such a wise decision on my part because 5 of the events are done in very unusual places. That means tables, chairs, and ALL the equipment used to caterer and event need to be hauled to the location and set up. The Bossman and his son-in law have taken care of this for me this season and I know that I would not have been able to do this with out their help!

So here's to the Bossman and his family for all they did to help me during my Chuck Boss Term!
Your Desert Rose!


  1. Event planning does have its ups and downs, doesn't it? Sounds like you did a good job. Most importantly, you got the right people to help you.

  2. What a brave soul you are! I think that would be a tough job to have, there is always someone grumbling about how things are done in a group!
    I salute you!! :-D

  3. I hate planning. I have to do a lot of it for my 4-H kids. Fun stuff.

  4. Oh that looks great! Probably has something to do with getting great and handsome people behind the bars eh? I can't wait to be able to attend some of these events next season!

  5. Looks like the Bossman is waiting patiently to take my order. I'm not so sure about that rattlesnake, though. eeek!

    I'm glad all your planning and duties worked out great!


  6. Wow, what would you really do without the Bossman!!


We wish you Happy Trails
Jesse and his Desert Rose!
