Square Dancing is Good Clean Fun [VIDEO]

I've been talking a lot about square dancing at the Wagon Wheel it Tye Texas for a good many years. Although I've produced commercials for them and mentioned them in the Live and Locals public service announcements in the mornings, I have never been out there. Well, that has since changed. I was asked to broadcast live there this past weekend and was totally immersed into the world of square dancing. This is a fun time for the whole family, that exclude drinking, smoking and any other immoral activity. Why they even have a pot luck supper where everybody pitches in. The sign up list goes up early in the week and everybody picks out what they're going to bring. After that the square dancing and round dancing is on.

West Texas Fair and Rodeo is Back [VIDEO]

It's time again for the 2011 West Texas Fair and Rodeo. From the very moment you set foot in the parking lot at the Taylor County Expo Center fair grounds the sights, sound and that familiar smell of funnel cakes, fajitas, turkey legs, Aggie fries and smoked brisket overwhelms your senses. While Sneak-a-Peek night was a lot slower than I can remember, it was perfect weather, not too cool, not too hot and obviously no rain, there wasn't even so much as a whisk of wind, in the air. The fresh squeezed lemonade was tangy yet tasty sweet and the fajitas were Delicious, now time to take to the rides. While the kiddo rides near the round building were not open on Thursdays Sneak-a-Peek night, we found a couple of race cars the Wheaton and Fernandez kids could have their picture made on.
