Cowboy Homecoming

Late in the afternoon if we go out to eat or anywhere on the way home we will detour through the park to feed the ducks or just to see what is going on there. We have a pretty park for a small town. The river runs through one side of it, covered cement slabs with picnic tables. Perfect place for kids to play basketball. A Volley  ball court, playground for toddlers with slides and swings. Anyway when we got near the entrance today we found cars parked everywhere on the street in spite of the damp misty weather. When we got where we could see into the park there was not a space to park. Small trailers, barbeque pits smoking. Humm how could I forget? Its Cowboy Homecoming week-end. There will be a parade tomorrow and country music and dancing. All kinds of food and judging whatever they cook. The last few years we have let it pass and probably will this week-end unless it is dry enough to go see the parade. We live on the other side of town so we won't hear a thing but those younger people will be having a good time. Good for them.

Sounds like a fun weekend in store for your town. Parks are always nice places to gather.

I like your thinking. Even if you don't go, you want the younger generation to enjoy what you remember. I like that attitude. I try to be like that. I realize I have had my time and do not want to begrudge the younger dads and moms and younger grandpas and grandmas too. This is THEIR time, when I can I like to see them enjoy it.

Sounds like a great weekend - for other people. I hope they have a fun time. Too bad you didn't get to feed the ducks.

This is the weekend of the rattle snake rodeo here in Opp. I hope the weather is nice and not raining. I have been a few times in the pass, but it's too much walking for me since I got older. Ha. They have bands that come and play, we can hear some of the music if we're outside. I think the last time I went to the concert Blake Shelton was here. Taker care. Jean

Hope the weather is nice enough you and John can get out for a spell. I know you are still at least young at heart.

Used to, we always went to things like this, and now we let them pass, even before Roger's stroke!

Yum....first off nothing beats a Texas BBQ.
And secondly, it's BEEN awfully wet hasn't it? I'm not complaining. After so much drought during the summer months this is a good change of pace.
