When I'm at the BBQ or the Rodeo it is an observation overload, this actually means I'm in heaven. :) I took over 400 pictures in 4 days, so a slide show was a good sharing solution for me. But, don't you think it would be a shame if you only got to see my favorite pics for just a split second? I do! So here are a few of the best:
|This hat cost this man around $700. It's pretty awesome. It's a straw hat with red, white and blue vent holes. The handmade hat band was beaded porcupine quills of the USA and Texas flags. He said it was all from The Hat Store.|
|This is the best hat band I've ever seen. One of our Final Round judges wears it every year and she was happy to tell me all about it. On an old belt she puts her collection of annual pins from the HLSR. The thickness of the belt absorbs the sharp part of the pin so it doesn't make it through the hat, that's a good thing! I started my pin collection last year!|
|Every night these guys were on guard at the entrance to serve and protect the BBQ.|
|Were you a reader last year? I had a very embarrassing moment trying to get a picture with with Texas A&M's Head Football Coach, Kevin Sumlin. So my friend Leigh and I were joking around that this would be my picture. No way was I going to ask for a picture again, he should just be able to relax, right?|
|Well, maybe taking a picture with us isn't completely out of the relaxing category. But we don't need any justification for this, it is just greatness!!! My friend Leigh made this picture happen, loved it!|
