One thing I believe in regarding my business is that I need to do what I can to to fulfill the agreements I make.
Sometimes, though, circumstances don’t allow for that. I was so excited to work the Waller County Fair and Rodeo in Hempstead, Texas, last week. It is a growing event, and I have no doubt that it will blossom quite nicely in the years to come.
But after two days in the community northwest of Houston, I needed to be somewhere else. My dad died last Thursday afternoon; I made arrangements to fly home Friday morning, then return to western Kansas to be with my family. I did what I could on my final night of the rodeo, which, as it happened, was opening night of a three-performance event.
Some great things happened last weekend in Hempstead, and my friend, James Phifer, captured it all with his camera. I’ll provide you with a wrap-up piece tomorrow, but I wanted to share with you an outstanding photo that Phifer took of Troy Lerwill, who entertained the fine folks in Waller County last week. I’ve seen some great shots of the great act, but this one might be one of the very best.
