This guy didn’t look too crazy about Tom touching his horns!
He was probably afraid he might be turned into a table runner!
Saturday was a beautiful day for exploring, so we decided to take a drive to Bandera. We had heard it was a cute little town, and that they have gunfighters on Saturday afternoon. After we visited with the bulls and strolled through a few shops,
we grabbed a quick lunch at Sid’s BBQ (in a converted gas station!),
and found a good spot in front of the Courthouse to watch the gunfights.
We started out along the wall in front of the Courthouse, but this guy came along to make us move . . . we didn’t argue with him! LOL!
Before long, the fighting started . . .
and the horsin’ around, too!
I don’t think I’d want these guys to work on my teeth!!
The skits were pretty entertaining, and we enjoyed the show . . .
even though we didn’t get deputized like these kids did!
This is usually the extent of Saturday afternoon entertainment in Bandera, but this particular weekend a motorcycle rally was in town, too, so we walked around checking out all the bikes!
Tom was wishing that he had ridden his, but we just accidentally ran into this event . . . we had to get a picture of this cool bike, though!
I guess biker babes don’t quilt! Oh well . . . I did find some cute fabric to buy, and they had a really nice selection of “western” themed fabrics.
From Bandera, we took State Rd. 46 through the Hill Country back to Boerne, for a quick stop at Walmart for some groceries. On our way back to the RV Park, we stumbled onto “Hot Rod Night” at Soda Pops . . . suddenly Nicolas wasn’t so anxious to get back home . . .
We decided to get some dinner while we were there, with milkshakes (the shakes were really thick and tasty . . . made with Blue Bell ice cream – YUM!) . . . and admired the hot rods as they arrived.
A band was getting set up to play, and the crowd was continuing to grow, but we didn’t stay for the music . . . we’d been out all day, and needed to get back and get the dog out.
It sounds like they have these most weekends, though, so I’m sure we’ll be back!
