It's Rodeo Time in Houston 2013


 
 
 
 
Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is about to begin.
You have to love the trail riders....
every year they ride into the big city....
I've been watching them since only 1972... it was always an event to see them in Memorial Park
back in the 70's on my way to work in downtown Houston.... Now I'm lucky to catch a glimpse of
them coming in on 59 North....

And then there's the music lineup..... incredible every year!
All your favorite country music stars!
I can't begin to name everyone I've seen at the rodeo
(including Elvis and Sonny & Cher)

My husband was born here and he saw Roy Rogers & Trigger!
What a lucky guy!

Happy Trails to you....

Sounds like a lot of fun - I'm not a big fan of country music, but it's great for dancing!

Oh, the memories! I can just smell that fabulous saw-dusty smell mixed with everything else. :-) And the tamales! And Charlie Pride and Ronnie Millsap. Oh!

I've never been to the rodeo It sounds like tons of fun!

By the way, I did that pinterest link you sent -- fascinating. I didn't know 90 percent of the folks who had pinned from my blog. Wish they'd stick around!
