to the rodeo
Today we drove south from Lawrence and back into Oklahoma on our way to Arkansas for more archiving on Monday. We landed in a small town outside Fayetteville and spent to tonight at a small rodeo. The weather was hot and sticky and stayed that way after the sun went down and the lights turned on. Photos tell the story better, but it was a real home town crowd with an announcer who knew the cowboys and cowgirls and sometimes their parents and grandparents, too. We learned about their rodeo accomplishments and other key points like the fact that one of the cowboys installed carpet and could help you out if you were looking to put some new ones in your house. A great start to the weekend. Yee-haw!
