2015 Photo-A-Day 2.6.2015

The last day of the 2015 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo is tomorrow. I’ve enjoyed my 4th year serving on the Safety Committee. “Western Professional” is the dress code for working the Show. Here I am, ready to head out earlier this year. Lucy snuck one last pat on the head as I prepared to leave.

"Western Professional" is the dress code when working at FWSSR. I like it.

P.S. Yes, I missed my Photo-A-Day post the last two days. Chalk it up to busy at work, stock show duties, and a rather nasty cold. Maybe I’ll change this category to “2015 Photo-Most-Days”!

Say hello to my new friends. As I walked the grounds of the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo on Saturday, I stopped at this stall and these two walked up and said hello – makes me want to look for acreage so I can take these two home! This pair pulls one of the chuck wagons that race during the rodeo performance. Although they run all-out during the race, here they were as calm, friendly and docile as could be.

Met these two at the FWSSR. Sweet animals!

Give a group of Texans a dance floor and a great band playing fine Texas music and you’ve got yourself a really fun time. In the Rodeo Roadhouse at the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo last night, Jolie Holiday and her band offered up some of the finest, ranging all the way from Patsy Cline to Stevie Nicks. I took this pic just as Jolie began one of her Patsy Cline covers. I was just in time; the dance floor was packed soon after.
