Scenes From A Parade

"Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or a fool from any direction."


Here you go, as promised some scenes from the Rowell Ranch Rodeo Parade. It was a gorgeous day in Castro Valley, and it was a lot of fun to sit back and enjoy the awesome sights. Horses, terrific marching bands, wacky clowns...all so much fun. Aren't small towns just the best? One really neat moment was being able to say hello to Senate candidate Ellen Corbett. What a nice lady! Fun, Fun, Fun! Today, (Sunday) I am off to Fort Point, to do some photographs inside the fort for the first time. I have been looking forward to that for a long time. :) Next to each picture are some Cowboy Wisdom quotes...Enjoy!

"Talk slowly, think quickly"

"Always drink upstream from the herd."

"If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen are defrocked, shouldn't it follow that cowboys would be deranged?"

"Sometimes you get and sometimes you get got."

"Tellin a man to get lost, and making him do it, are two entirely different propositions."

"If you find yourself in a hole, the best thing to do is to stop digging."

Ellen Corbett

"Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance."

I enjoyed both the pictures AND the quotes. Can't wait to see the shots you take at the fort.
