National Western Stock Show

James and I went to the National Western Stock Show on January 19, 2009. It was Martin Luther King Day. The Stock Show was kind of a big deal, it was here for two weeks and everyone went at some point or another. And some people got e'coli from it. (Eeek!) We went to the rodeo first of all. We were sitting there, James enjoying his barbequed turkey leg and me eating my pulled pork sandwich, and a rider comes out with an Obama flag. Which could be expected, he was being sworn in the next day as President. Then a rider comes in with the African American national flag and a lady starts singing the Black National Anthem. James looks at me and says, "I think we're at the Black Rodeo." And it was. It was good. Kind of weird that they still segregate rodeos, huh? They don't, but that's a little what it felt like. We also walked around the booths and saw lots of farm equipment, carhardts and belt buckles. James looks real excited, huh?
