June 15th Durham Rodeo Recap – Part 1

We are deep into the season and Durham kicked off another one in its series in Downtown Durham’s Central Park.  I have to go back to the Triangle Food Truck Historical Society (an idea of mine, but just funding has been tight) to confirm that these Durham rodeos were the birthplace of the rodeo.  With that in mind, it is no surprise as these are very well run, entertaining with live music, and plenty of green space to kick soccer balls, lay down a blanket or chairs.

For those of you that went, check out some reminders of an awesome time.  For those that missed it, feel free to catch some of the highlights.  I got a new lens for my camera.  As a result, gadgets and me is like a kid with a new toy.  We will have Part 1 today with undetermined amount of parts later.  If you are interested in the next rodeo: August 31st is the next date.

I was just thinking of a brownie cupcake... and Not Just Icing presents me with a Blonde Brownie with Salted Caramel cupcake.  It's like they read my mind!

Stuft's wrap is very cool.  The "we scrub our skins" always gives me a chuckle (very witty).
