Alan Jackson Was One Fine Attraction!


First thing that comes to mind when you see Alan Jackson: he's so darn cute! He's got a seductive grin and, believe it or not, I don't mean that in a tawdry way. He's got a smile that makes you want to see it over and over again....you can't not smile when you see him smile. He sounded wonderful and sang all my favorites. I wish the pictures I took would of turned out better. Darnit. I took probably a hundred and only have a few worth squat.

He ended the evening with projected pictures of Houston and Texas and the crowd went wild with each frame change. They must of taken some, if not all of them, yesterday. I liked it that he ended on an UP note and not with Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning because as touching and heartfelt as that song is, it's like picking at the scab and never letting it heal.




He even looks pretty in pink, don't you think?

I've had the most extraordinary four trips to the rodeo this year. Each was memorable in its own way and even though it takes me a couple of days to "recover" from the experience, I wouldn't of missed it for anything. I have to say again that all the folks that put on the rodeo do an outstanding job. If the rodeo committee ran the country we might could get something accomplished! The only improvement won't ever happen and that'd be in they kept the golldurn crap peddlers off the isles when the lights go down for the headliners. Yee haw, ya'll, get along lil doggie... until next year.

Yep, Alan was awesome. I was there, too. He's a class act and cute to boot!
I thought the same thing about the crap peddlers during the concert.
And what about all the overpriced blingy sh** the vendors were hawking? I can get most of it at Harwin.

Texas is a Third World country.

I agree, Lainey! Those are the ugliest hats I've ever seen too. Who'd want a pink fuzzy Dr. Suess hat anyway? I had remarkable sales resistance by the time I made it to Alan's show. No beer, no Rita, no big salty pretzel, no hot cinammon pecans and no ice cream in the #9 cake cone washtub size! We ate our usual dinner at Sudies and I got a commorative cup of Diet Coke and no another blessed thing! Yea, me!

I must confess! I had a $5.00 funnel cake...and a beer....and some popcorn....and.....
BUT, I resisted the pink fuzzy hat!

Hey Anonymous...
DONT MESS WITH TEXAS!!!

Don't let that Anon get to you. I figure he/she/it is from Outer Bananaskin or somewhere equally mundane and drab and is jealous of what we've got here in Tejas. They probably don't know that "Texas is a whole other country" and that the Great State has "got it all"... and even if we do have a touch of 3rdworldism, ours is classier than most...

If he/she/it is in Texas then that's too bad and they really, really ought to think about leaving and going somewhere better for their delicate sensibilities..."hell" would be good... that's sort of like Texas in August... :-)

So, if we were to replace a few million of your "ilk" (in the humble parlance of the asphalt of the Earth) with half as many... say... Chinamen, would you doubt that our productivity would double, all remnants of our Springer-Sally gutter culture -and the low society that birthed it- eradicated, and our minorities unscathed by the brutish heathens that for decades lynched them, cursed them, and afforded them no mercy?

Dear J-J P 3, Wow, I can honestly say I have no idea what you are blathering about. Don't be getting your blood pressure out of whack on my account though. I can guarantee you that life is too short to spend it in a snit. Have a great, safe day and do yourself a favor and try to find some joy ....
