|Bob's new look for Stock Show.|
|I still love the gentle Hereford bulls.|
|Kathi and I visited the horse show ring. 8 to 10 year old kids were showing horses riding English saddles and wearing the appropriate attire!|
|Children can sit on the Clydesdale and Long Horn so their parents can take pictures. I guess no kids were there this time.|
Oh well, I'd get some pics the next day. Bob and I strolled (well, more accurately, elbowed our way through the throngs)around the perimeter of the Coliseum and quickly decided we needed to go over to the grounds side because it was about 1/2 hour before the rodeo and everyone was coming in early to get to their seats! We were not going to the rodeo and just wanted to see the sights.
We got over to the other side of the interstate and headed for the old arena. We watched them showing some Angus Bulls and when that was over we strolled around looking at the vendor's wares. I got my hand washed with mink oil and tasted some nuts. Then we went up into the Hall of Education and looked around a little before we met Danny and Kathi for lunch. So far Bob was doing fine with his cane. After lunch Kathi and I wandered through the aisles of the trade show. Kathi had her camera so took pictures of some of the weirder or more interesting sights we saw. She will have them on her blog sight (Country Chicken Girl) sometime soon.
|Where we started out to eat. We'll have to try it next year!|
As we were walking to the restaurant (Ling and Louie's) we noticed Toby Keith's restaurant, I Love This Bar and Grill, across the street. It had just recently opened and looked like it was doing a good business. We ate there and took pictures as well! Food was good and we enjoyed ourselves.
|A new place we had to try.|
|A huge bar dominates the restaurant.|
