Hoe Down with the Sheriff

My husband was on the Sheriff's Advisory Council this past year. That is a group of 20 civilians that help the Sheriff's department with different ideas. From budgeting to jail suggestions, to making sure equipment for the deputies is up to date. Sheriff Grady Judd started this when he took office. His first group was in 2005. Once you are on this committe, you are basically on it for life. My husband enjoyed his year so much that Iam trying to get on it this year. But they had a record number of applicants this time...150. So that needs to be whittled down to 20. If I don't make it this year, I'll try again next.
Last Tuesday what Hut's "graduation"! They had a Western Themed dinner with all the fixin's and an AWESOME Bluegrass band.

Me and Hut before heading out. We clean up pretty darn good if I do say so myself.

Hut enjoying some peanuts before the festivities.

I can't believe we'd fetch $1,000 award. Now don't any of you get it in your pretty little head to turn us in.

Who is that purty little blonde with my husband in the hoosecow? Why it's Gwinnell, Sheriff Judd's right hand "man". Very awesome lady.

They finally figured out it was supposed to be me in there with him.
Sheriff Grady Judd with me and Hut. He is one of the greatest people and a no nonsense sheriff. We all just LOVE him!
Hut receiving his certificate from Sheriff Judd. And yest that's a real covered wagon!
Here's the whole "gradutating class".
This was so much fun. We had dancing and great barbeque to eat. I thought I had video taped the Sheriff dancing but my camera was on the wrong setting. Talk about mad, lol. Can't wait to do this again next year!
