Go Texan Day in Houston

Today is Go Texan Day in Houston. While other cities just don't get this annual celebration, we absolutely love the hats, horses & friendly chatter. Although I raced to my daughter's dance at school from a required business meeting, I made it in time for the finale. I haven't yet mentioned denting someone else's bumper as I whipped into my parking spot but oh well.

It's always fun to see the kids country & western dance. I remember dressing up & dancing with my annual partner Kris Lambert while in elementary school. It was a good break from the norm.

Again this year, we waved to the trail riders as they journeyed south on Shepherd. They make a put stop at the Sears so kids can pet & ride the horses, check out the chuck wagons & talk to the cowboys & cowgirls. Reminder: this is right in the middle of the 4th largest city in the U.S., but it feels like a small town. We are looking forward to seeing these trailriders on TV tomorrow during the Rodeo Parade. Too fun! Yew haw!
