Howdy, y'all!

Greetings from Cow-town, Alberta, where right now, we're holding the ___th Annual Calgary Exhibition & Stampede! We're not sure how many we've had... The Calgary Exhibition's been held annually since 1886, while the Calgary Stampede has been held annually since 1912...and the two combined in 1932. So, I'll split the difference and say it's the 70th Annual Stampede. Any-hoo, it's a great time filled with cows and horses and rides and games and carnies who try to screw you out of your hard-earned money! In less than eight hours, I'll be going to my 16th Stampede [I've gone every damned year].

I was just wonderin'....who else has gone? From Calgary, Canada, and elsewhere!



Bart: Hey, immigrants! Beat it! Country's full!
Sailor: OK people, you heard the lady. Back into the hold. We'll try Canada.

Hey, I'm actually sitting right below a laminated poster of last year's Calgary Stampede, as I went for a few days last year-caught the Tea Party and some country acts in concert, went to the Rodeo and Chuckwagon races, got caught in a rainstorm, and met a lot of nice people. I really wanted to get out there again this year, but no luck with time. My manager just got back, though, and she had a blast.

It really is a hell of a party and I hope to get back to it again before too long.

I travel to Calgary a lot, but I have never been to the Stampede. Maybe I should go one day?
