The National Western Stock Show
Yesterday The Great White Hunter and I ventured up I-70 to the 2011 National Western Stock Show. This has turned into a yearly destination for TGWH and me to look at cattle, shop and run into friends we haven’t seen in a while. It was plenty nice outside which made it very enjoyable to walk the yards and watch the many ranches prepare for the Shorthorn pen and carload shows. We ventured to the hill to peruse the numerous booths and of course take a moment to watch all the different people in attendance. We were lucky enough to stumble on a picture that we are hoping to purchase for the bedroom and of course I found a purse. We had an early dinner at the All You Can Eat Buffet outside of the club and enjoyed free beer from a celebrating ranch after their big win in the Hereford competition. (Side Note – we did know the sister-in-law of the big winners. We didn’t just take free beer, what kind of people do you think we are?) We finished the evening hanging with our favorite fellow G-Money and soon headed south full of food, beer and with a special stock show scent.
