"If you're somebody that gets a chance to go somewhere...
that has to work somewhere or go to another city, then do your best to see it.
Because I just think that's the best way to have an interesting life."
Summer wouldn't be fun in summer if it wasn't for Fort Worth, TX! Did you ever know a kid who didn't want to be a Cowboy? Or a Cowgirl? Riding horses and being around horses has a way of teaching one many life lessons. If you never dreamed about Cowboys or Cowgirls, horses, and having fun, well then.... fiddle-dee-dee! Now's your chance to be one!

These photos were taken on Christmas Morning 2018 while walking through the Stock Yards with my daughter and son-in-law. The last two photos are my family. The cattle drive will run down this street under the Fort Worth Stock Yards Sign.
