Back to the Cowboy Capital

The Cowboy Capital of the World, Bandera, TX, is once more the site of the annual Singles International Dance Rally. It all started off with a barbeque, "Down by the River." We rode a hay wagon the half mile to the river. The theme this year for the first night was Li'l Abner and Daisy Mae.


It's amazing what a blond wig and a couple of socks will do!


Even Mammy Yokum was there, enjoying our spot overlooking the river.


There are 170 single RVers here, all ready to dance.


After dinner, we were entertained by skits put on by 3 local cowboys. Here one kidnaps Pam. She won the part because she screamed the loudest.


Another day we had a tacky fashion show. I can't believe these people carry all this stuff around in their rigs.


Today, the Today Show showed up in town to film a segment at the local hot dog stand. They said it would air on the weekend, either Saturday or Sunday.


While watching the filming, I ran into Walking John, the cowboy I met last year. He even remembered me!

You make a pretty cute Daisy Mae, but I prefer you as a brunette.

Loved your Daisy Mae outfit. The tacky outfits were cute - my vote is for the guy in the plaid shorts, striped shirt and black socks.

I have been following your blog now for a while and its amazing what fun things your group gets to do. What a fantastic way to spend your retirement. Good for you.

How FUN!!! We didn't get to go to Bandera, went right through it but were on our way to somewhere else. Next time, we will for sure.

If you happen to be near Luckenbach today, come see us, we're camped out in the field next to the bar till Saturday. Good times!
