Arriving at the Stockyards

Heading north through Fort Worth was a daunting journey. Lots of traffic and roads. Maybe I'm too far East again?


I'm staying in a lot at the Stockyards, a historical district in Fort Worth, with the SI, Singles International, the singles group of FMCA.


This is a great opportunity. Lots of the buildings are over 100 years old.


Twice a day, they have a "cattle drive" down the main street.


It was pretty tame and I was a tad disappointed. They were walking slower than I do. I guess I was expecting "The Running of the Bulls."


These cattle must be well into old age.


The first night we went to a terrific bar, Pearls. Margheritas were only $1, and they were pretty good.


Sher heard that the 20th one was free, so she started collecting cups.

"If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band." Seems to be true in this neck of the woods. This guy was great playing "Cotton Eye Joe."

  1. Love those Longhorns! I especially like the picture of the one looking right at you. He's either thinking about charging or saying, "Just take the picture and get out!"
