Cowboy up!

We're in the final countdown to Rodeo Days here in H-Town - the trail riders are all headed into town (which is why it has gotten cold) and the big Rodeo Parade is this Saturday (which is why it will rain). The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo officially kicks off Monday, March 3 (Little Son's birthday) and runs thru Saturday, March 22 (Daughter's birthday).

Last night Hubby and I attended another pre-rodeo event - a Trail Riders' Dinner and Dance at NASA/JSC. Dressed in our finest western wear, we mingled with the Texas Independence Trail Riders, had a delicious dinner, bid on auction items (didn't win anything), Hubby accepted an award for his company, and we two-stepped into the night! We even entered a dance contest and made it to the final round before we were eliminated. (I think Hubby was glad to sit down - we're not as young and in-shape as we used to be and we were getting a little winded!) All in all, it was a fun evening.

And now it's time to rodeo! Yee haw!

Do they still do the trail rides, because I've heard nothing in the news about it. We'd like to take Bubba Jr. perhaps. Email me the details if you know.

Tomorrow is Go Texan Day at work, I will wear my normal stuff and then say, "I'm fourth generation Texan, I Go Texan every day." Or shall I wear my Houston Texan gear and say I got confused?

I think Bubba Jr. would have a blast! We'll talk.

You can wear your boots to work tomorrow, in case you need to kick someone's butt.
