Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo time of the year is here again.
In the time flies department it seems like only yesterday I was convinced I was going to make it to the 2013 Stock Show Parade.
However, I did not make it.
I do not remember what events, if any, conspired to keep me from getting myself to downtown Fort Worth to watch the Stock Show Parade.
I have seen many extremely well done parades since I have been in Texas. The Stock Show Parade may be my favorite. I have watched this particular parade twice.
I think the thing I like about the Stock Show Parade is the fact that it is totally non-mechanized, billing itself as the biggest non-mechanized parade in the world.
I have no idea if it is true that the Fort Worth Stock Show Parade is the biggest non-mechanized parade in the world, used to, as I am, to not blindly trusting Texas propaganda.
How have I managed to miss any pre Fort Worth Stock Show promoting til last night's poster discovery?
The Stock Show starts up in only three days, on January 17, with the Stock Show Parade taking place the day after the opening, Saturday, January 18.
I have no current urge to haul myself to downtown Fort Worth on Saturday to watch the Stock Show Parade for the third time.
I have until February 8 to haul myself to Fort Worth's Cultural District to the location of the Stock Show & Rodeo, to make my second visit to that event, but, I currently have no strong current urge to do that either.
Currently all my urges are at a very low ebb....
