Donkey Basketball is coming to Parker, South Dakota Friday, March 15TH. I recently received a message from Tami and she said the event is being held in the Parker, SD School Gym on Friday, March 15 at 7:00

It's a fundraiser for our Parker Music Boosters group. People can obtain tickets by contacting the Parker School at 1-605-297-3456.

I've seen a couple of these. Back when I was younger and more foolish, I actually rode in one of these events. It sounds like fun!

There will be a 50/50 raffle, free donkey rides for kids 12 and under with an adult present, a BBQ or fish meal, and a Kiss the Donkey contest! [There was no mention as to the part of the donkey you would be kissing so keep that in mind!]

You can stop out at 6:30 PM for a meal (cost not included in ticket price) & Donkeyball at 7:00 PM. Come watch local “celebrity” donkey jockeys try to ride real, live donkeys!

Life on a Cattle Ranch in Western South Dakota

Life is different out in the country. One look at the photo from Robin Bickel and you quickly realize that a workday is quite different as well, after all, she lives out west in South Dakota Cattle Country.

Robin Bickel took time to tell KIKN Country a little bit about her life out west and life as a woman, working outdoors with animals and nature in God's Country. Bickel lives and works on a cattle ranch operated by herself, her father, Jack, and his brother Keith. How far out in the country is she? How does 50 miles west of Mobridge, South Dakota sound? Yep, mountain time out there.

Life is so different in Sioux Falls, South Dakota compared to what our friends on the farm and ranches deal with. It's a half-mile to the grocery store for our family. For Robin, it's 17 miles. However, it's a quick step out her door and she's right in the middle of where a lot of the groceries come from.
