Huge temperature change on Saturday after rain Friday night. We awoke to 58 degrees - gray and dreary. What to do? I had an ulterior lunch motive, but first we decided to walk around the Fort Worth Stockyards. We walked into the stables and here's a warning - basically beware of horses. I stayed in the middle of the barn lanes and let Ray pet the equine. (See Old Buttercup chapter from my book My Zoo World, and you'll know why I steer clear)
We did enjoy the cattle mosey at 11:30 am. The very first time we ever saw this I expected a cattle stampede, but no - it's a leisurely stroll down Exchange Street. Plenty of tourists and it's fun to watch.

The displays for men and women who've excelled at rodeo, cutting, ranching, and sport medicine are well done - famous names like Larry Mahan, John Justin, Jr., Walt Garrison, et al are represented. The Sterquell Wagon Collection is extensive - over sixty antique buggies, carriages, sleighs, carts, and wagons are shown. This is a premier salute to transportation from the 1800s.
And lunch - www.cheftimlove.com We chose The Love Shack - tasty burger combo, root beer on tap, and a live duo playing outdoors. It was a bit chilly, but we chowed down. A fun Saturday exploring our back yard - well, twenty minutes away.
