Now you may not think about Houston being a big time rodeo town but for the next three weeks it’s just that.
There’ll be bronc busting,
barrel races for the gals
chuck wagon races and so much more with nice payback to the winners in every event. The real winners though are the young people who year after year receive generous scholarships which help them continue their education.
This time of year means cowboy hats and denim,
maybe even a prize winning steer showing up for a spell.
Hungry cowboys and cowgirls will gather round to tell tall tales
as they enjoy a cold Lone Star, the national beer of Texas.
Tables don’t have to be too fancy,
but whatever fills the bowl better be hearty and good.
I’m thinking a good bowl of chicken/white bean chili and jalapeño cornbread will be just right.
It’s a fun time of year all right and when you are driving the streets of Houston you better be prepared for whatever is in front of you as you head to the rodeo and a concert by your favorite country/western singer!
