George Strait Was Great!

I got to see George Strait at the Houston Rodeo last night! First time ever as he's always sold out. My best friend Paula and her husband invited me. They only had to ask me once too!

He was, as expected, just great. He sang for 1 hour and 25 minutes. He was warmly received, but IMHO not shown a great deal of respect. Call me old fashioned, but when someone is performing it's not polite to a) come in late and make folks stand to let you in the row, b) come and go like you were in the middle of the barrel racing or chicken chasing, c) start leaving before the show is even a little past half over, d) run up and down the isles selling silly shit, e) stand up drunk and dancing with total disregard for those trying to see around your big ass, etc., etc., etc. Ok, call me 'cranky' and be done with it, but it's irritating as spit the way some folks behave. I guess the rodeo arena has different rules than something smaller, but I still think of the folks that would of LOVED to be there that would of listened and enjoyed as opposed to the ones I've described.

I have to hand it to the folks that put the rodeo together each and every year. Now I'll admit I thought I'd die before the bus arrived to take us 'home', as it gets mighty hot under TENTS, but by and large they do an outstanding job from the get-go to those snaking lines for the buses. I like the way the rodeo action moves from one end of the arena for one event, to the other end for the next event. The food was good and the single beer (SEVEN BUCKS!) I had was cold and tasty.

Believe it or not, I'm going with them to see Toby Keith and Alan Jackson too. I'm so blessed. Here's a ha-ha photo I took and e-mailed myself. I think the ghostly orb in the center is George .... by then the beer was kicking in.

Yee Haw, everybody! Go Texan!

Very well put!

I saw Geo at the Rodeo a few yrs ago. He's a class act with a nice ass! Sorry, I just had to say that!

BTW, I'm feeling better and back at work, so I guess I need to cut back on the carbs. Hello rabbit food.

Have you ever had your face waxed, Bubba?
