Rodeo Opening Weekend....Lots to see and the Sun is Shining!

After a week of gray and cold weather, it is great to see sunshine in Cowtown today!
The rodeo parade is tomorrow morning just before noon...but to get a great spot, be there early!  Remember it is best to be on the Sunny side of the street where it will be the warmest!  (Just  my preference.)
Bull Riding at the Rodeo

From the parade, many will head out to the Coliseum and the Stock Barns to start looking at the calves and sheep....goats, chickens, pigs, and RIDE THE RIDES!!! ...always a hit with the kids...and big kids too.  I always try to ride some with my grandkids...while my sons look on dying laughing at me and the kids! All in all, its a great family experience for all.
Today I will dust off my boots and locate my cowboy hats, which I only wear during the Stock is just fun...playing dress up as an adult! ...when you go to the rodeo, you will find all kinds of great Western wear in the Roundup Inn exhibit building.  I can never leave there without finding something to put on and wear RIGHT THEN!  IT'S A perfect time to buy a cowboy hat because the hatters are able to fit you and steam a great crease into the hat...on the spot!
There are lots of folks all up and down Camp Bowie and downtown...and lots are in town to shop!
I stopped by my booth at the Montgomery Antique Mall just before noon today, and there were lots of folks already there.........the ladies and some of the guys really like to see what treasures they can find...

It is Rodeo and Stock show time in Fort Worth.....the parade will kick off at 11:30 on Saturday in downtown....with our historic courthouse in the background and our new and wonderful Sundance Square in the is sure to be a great time for all those riding and watching.

Last year, my twin granddaughters rode in the parade and if was so much fun watching for them.....and then seeing them.....

The parade marks the beginning of almost a month of Western themes for our "cowtown".  From one end to the other from Fort Worth, visitors and locals will live the "cowboy" theme.....I always dig out my boots and dress western during this month.

Where to find great western wear.....Answer: Any shop on the Northside, and also the Leddy's shop at Sundance Square....Also the Montgomery Antique Mall at I-30 and Montgomery has vendors with very cool and vintage "cowboy" things.  From old tack to western prints and artwork....vintage clothing, boots....etc.

More to come about our "Legendary Event" in the next few days.

BACK TO BLOGGING....after a long rest....but THINGS have been in FORT WORTH!

When you see some of the homes that I sold in 2014, you will know that I was working hard!.....
These are only some of the homes that I helped happy sellers and buyers with over the past 12 months.  I will be talking about them as well as other homes that I sold or worked with buyers to purchase.
Fort worth is a very unique city with a small town feeling.  It has all of the luxuries that you find in a large, fast metro area....but we do it much more quietly and at a slower pace.
This pace that is different from Dallas or Houston is one of the aspects of the charming life that we have here in Fort worth.....You can have friends who love the night life of a new great restaurant for supper or dinner nightly...or the friends who just want to meet for happy hour after work....or the family with children to carpool, attend sports nightly or friends who are attending an entertainment venue with happens here each night.
From homey to truly uptown is all here in Fort Worth.
What about homes?  What about pricing? What about affordability?  When is the best time to sell or buy?  These are questions that I am going to update you about during the next few weeks of my re-emerging blog....
For all of you who may stumble on to my may email me your questions at find me on facebook.
