I almost forgot about that. Thanks for the tip! In the past it was during the same weekend as the Burnsville Fire Muster, but they moved up to August and now I no longer have a conflict. I do recall quite a crowd in the past trying to watch the bank robbery re-enactment. Is any certain time better than another or are all of them always pretty busy?

Ouch! I'd hate to be the one playing Jesse James!

I'm related to Cole Younger (of the famous outlaw group the Younger Brothers), who partnered up with Jesse James in the outlaw days to terrorize innocent citizens.

In Harlingen Texas we used to have Poncho Villa Days. All the men in town would grow beards. Any man not having a beard had to spend 10 minutes in the "jail" on a flatbed truck in the middle of main street. Then the parade. Everyone in old Mexican peasant clothing with huge sombreros carrying live chickens and bottles of Tequila with bandaleros and old rifles which some would shoot off occasionally. Unfortunately, times caught up with PVD. It was thought to be offensive to the Mexican population of the town and discontinuted.

It was very busy this weekend. I got there at about 2230 on friday and stayed until 2030 sunday. I put in somewhere around 25 hours. The raids or reinactments were pretty good and all the ones I went to had a good turn out. The rodeos also had good turn outs as well. Things went smoothly at the parade this afternoon. Didn't have a ton of problems for the most part. Saturday at about 0130 we had some trouble getting the no parking signs up in time. It got especially difficult outside the bar where the drunks were coming out asking us for rides in our little golf cart/gator thing...Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.

I think we can both agree your relative deserved it. I mean, really, who wears sequins on their cowboy hat?
