Summertime!

Today is the first day of Summer!  Woohoo!  That much closer to Fall and football!  So why not post a picture from Chicago?  Why Chicago you ask?  Well, you really can't see it spelled out in the picture here, but the white boat docked next to the curved building in the foreground is a tour boat named "Summer of George".  As a Seinfeld fan, I love it!  If you aren't a Seinfeld fan then you need to go here to see what I am talking about.

Trick Roper

Time to go back to the rodeo.. This guy here is a trick rope artist that is a part of the wild west show going on at the Stockyards in Fort Worth. We didn't actually see that show, but he performed during the rodeo to give the audience a little taste.  Didn't get his name, but as you can see, he was awesome!  Oh, and I wish his hand and the rope didn't block his face so much, but that's how it goes...

Whiskey Shivers

Eileen and I went to Taylor, TX to experience the 1st annual Texas Stomp-N-Holler music festival with our good friend Valerie.  We had a great time and we really enjoyed all three music acts.  The line-up was Rosie Flores, Whiskey Shivers and headliner The Mavericks.  I must admit I'm not much of a country music fan, but all of this music was just a little bit different than country and it was all pretty catchy.

Whisky Shivers from Austin, TX plays a type of bluegrass music with punk rock influences.  I didn't really notice the punk rock part, but the bluegrass was definitely the influence here.  They played well and their songs had a really fast beat.  I guess that's where the punk comes in.  They call their type of music "trashgrass".  Gotta love it!

The two guys seen here are fiddler Bobby Fitzgerald on the left and guitar player Jeff "Horti" Hortillosa.
