My First Rodeo - The Montgomery County Agricultural Fair 60th Anniversary 2008

Montgomery County Agricultural Fair 2008

The Montgomery County Fair was great.

I enjoyed the Hog Races ( another first for me)

My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flig
