It’s rodeo time in Houston!
Alan is disappointed that the Barbecue Championship coincides with the start of Lent.
Be that as it may, the smoke is ascending heavenward, the trail rides are heading to the city, and the parade will be this Saturday morning (I’ve never made it to the parade, and now that I am otherwise occupied on Saturday mornings, I guess I never will).
You can get half-price carnival ride tickets until tomorrow. The rodeo itself is a great deal: tickets start at $16–on Wednesdays they are only $10–and that gets you admission to the grounds, to the rodeo action, and to the concert which follows. We’re going to see Reba on March 11.
Time to dust off the Stetson.
