About Me

My photo
I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.

Friday - The Cowgirl Hall of Fame

Friday, time to head on home!  I don't know why but the trip home wasn't as long as the trip down to San Antonio; maybe it was because there were no more traffic jams?
We had such a good day on Thursday but were more than ready to depart!  On our way, we stopped at the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth, Texas.  Not everyone loved this museum and one man said he would rather have walked through a slaughter house!  I was bored except for the section on Dale Evans!  She made cowgirls popular again.  Most of the cowgirls that the museum represented were rodeo riders!   This is not my cup of tea, but to each, their own.

This wagon was from the 1886 Southwestern Exposition.  Isn't it beautiful?

Just the cowgirls from the bus!  (I am in the red jacket in the front)

Wow! You have had an amazing trip! So many things to enjoy. When we were in California many years ago, there was a Roy Rogers and Dale Evans museum. It was a really enjoyable stop. Dale Evans certainly was a perfect role model for the term "cowgirl".

Travel safe.

What a wonderful trip. I looked over your photos in the previous post too. We have been to San Antonio a few times and there is so much to see and so much history. You did great describing what you saw. Happy Spring my friend. Hugs, Diane
