Yippee Ki Yeah ...Whatevs
Yeppers..it's Rodeo time again in H Town.
And it's Lent .
So you can bet that you are going to be hard pressed to get any fish/seafood in the next few weeks in under an hour and a half for any Friday lunchtime..hope your bosses are lenient.
And it's go Texan day at the office which means that people who are clueless as to the bidness end of a steer are in jeans and boots....and as far as the Buckle Bunnies are concerned...
I'm always amused at the people who feel a need to get all gussied up in what is for lack of a better term..costumes for things like this. Don't look at me like that , yes, people go bat shit crazy for Mardi Gras but that is for a couple of nights at best.
Rodeo is a month long down here.
What is not as widely discussed is the Livestock Show and that's a big deal Maynard. HLSR ( Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo ) generates a huge amount of scholarship money for kids that show their animals. Many are able to go to college or help their families because of it and if you have ever known anyone in 4H or worked a farm, you know that means a lot of work.
I do love to get glimpses of the calf scrambles...no baby cows are hurt y'all..but I am no longer willing to put up with the crowds...and I do mean crowds.
Gone are the days when we could go to shows at Reliant..like the Judds ( yes..that long ago ) or Jimmy. Basically it was a concert venue and not the park 5 miles back , get on shuttle buses mayhem..not for the weak of heart or those with mobility issues.
It's all good..more a case of been there, done that I guess....and besides.....we still have go Texan Day at the office.............
FREE BAR B QUE LUNCH FROM GOODE BAR B QUE..OH HELL YEAH.
Now , if they only had some Shiner to go with it.
Stay warm .
