I started out with the live stock show and all of the other fun things. Oh, my God! Did I enjoy the FOOD. Everything was to die for. Deep fried Oreos, steak burgers, foot-long sausage sandwiches, giant cinnamon rolls with lots of icing. But don’t take my word for it, check out the photos for yourself.
I went to the Rodeo to see Martina McBride. She was great and the music was terrific! She really sang her heart out. She sang all of her best songs and the crowd loved it. Of course, so did I. Martina loves Houston and she looks forward to her show here every year.
I know why she loves Houston. I feel it every time I go out. So many people here have been so kind to me. I’m thankful to be in a great city like Houston. It made me feel so good when people I never met came up to be today and spoke kind words to me. You will see them in my photos. People like that are heroes to me!
Today was my second Astros game. Before the game, my friend Lee told me, “You have to have a Astros shirt.” So went to one of the local stores and Lee said pick the one you want. This is a cool shirt. That was the first thing we did. The high before the game was the food. I had the best Chile cheese hot bog ever, and a nice cold Coke to wash it down. mmmmm! By the way this is my first Astros shirt. I send thanks to my friend Lee, who invited me to join him with his daughter Rebecca and her friend Blake. Both are very nice and they treated me very well. We enjoyed the game, even though our team did not win, we still support the Astros and I will be happy to see them anytime. Go ASTROS! You are winners in my eyes. Please view the pictures from the game and lets blog about it.
I’m so happy that I am meeting new friends, to share our stories with one another. I asked Katie’s mom Vanessa about the UK. She writes a lot of things I enjoyed reading. I wanted to share them with you. Read below. I’m looking forward to the video, which I hope to post here. Thank you Katie and Vanessa! Continue reading MY NEW FRIENDS IN THE UK.
I have always wanted to watch the Astros in person but was always afraid to be in crowds among people I thought would be afraid of me or not want to be around me. I WAS SO WRONG!!! I had the best time of my life!!!! I felt like I was surrounded by friends and I have to tell you, that doesn’t happen very often.
Thank you, all of you who came up to me and said hello and took pictures with me. You have no idea what that simple act of kindness meant to me.
It was the greatest day of my life!
I want to send an extra special thank you to Amanda Ludeke, on-air personality at Sports Radio 610. Thank you for introducing yourself to me. Thank you for making me feel so special.
And thank you Jay Sitta of CBS Outdoor for the incredible tickets!!! You guys rule!
