So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


As long as you stay with me

I love having connections. Saturday night, I get to see Josh Gracin gratis at Billy Bob's in Fort Worth. I'm sort of excited about it. I'm not a giant American Idol fan, but I do tend to pay some attention when it gets closer to the end. I think I got sucked in when we had two local gals in the finalists the first season. Kelly Clarkson is from Burleson (about 10 miles from where my folks live).

In case you didn't know, Josh was a marine who got special permission from the military to participate in the American Idol competition. I really like the song Stay With Me. You can listen to several of his songs on his MySpace page at the link above.

So, free admission is good. Free concert, better. This allows us more money for booze and the
bullriding. One of my favorite things in life has been introducing my yankee-born honey to the gritty sport of bullriding. He loves to watch it now and going to Billy Bob's is always a treat. It is only about a half-hour, but it is fun. I wish we had the time and money to go to the Fort Worth Stock Show Rodeo. Now THAT is an awesome rodeo.

    Kat and I had a ball going to the PRB. Donny Gay saying "it's raining cowboys tonight, folks."

    We learned one of the funniest phrases in rodeo at the Billy Bob's bullriding.

    The phrase: cowboy elevator.

    Defintion: when the bull goes running wildly (and pissed off for that matter) through the arena and the cowboys all start climbing up the fence to keep from getting gored. That is a cowboy elevator. it is hilarious to see in action.
