Bronc riderTwo ranchers, Bart and Hank, in their late 80’s, were neighbors who been friends all of their lives.

When it was clear that Bart’s health was failing, Hank visited him every day.  One day Hank said, “Bart, we both loved rodeo all our lives, and we rode some rank stock before we settled down to ranching full-time. Please do me one favor.  When you get to heaven, somehow you must let me know if they have rodeos up there?

Bart looked up at Hank from his deathbed and said, “Hank, you’ve been my best friend for many years. If it’s at all possible, I’ll do this favor for you.” A few days later, Bart passed on.

A few nights passed and Hank was awakened from a sound sleep by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling out to him, “Hank, Hank.”  “Who is it,” asked Hank, sitting up suddenly. “Who is it?”  “Hank it’s me, Bart.”  “You’re not Bart. Bart just died.”  “I’m telling you, it’s me, Bart!” insisted the voice.  “Bart! Where are you?”  “I’m in Heaven!

Bart said, “I have some really good news and a little bad news.”  “Tell me the good news first,” said Hank.  “The good news,” Bart said, “is that there’s the best rodeo you can imagine in heaven. Better yet, all of our old buddies who died before me are here, too. Even better than that, we’re all young again. Better still, the weather is perfect and there is never any mud. And best of all, we can ride and fall all we want, and we never get hurt.”

That’s fantastic,” said Hank. “It’s beyond my wildest dreams! So what’s the bad news?”  “You’re ridin’ with us on Tuesday.”
