Miss Tomball and Line Dancers

Isn’t she purty?  Before the horses and wagons arrived at Tomball, en route to Houston Rodeo, we were entertained by Miss Tomball 2020 and Line Dancers.  As I people watched I noticed that two little sisters were wearing handmade dresses with little horses on them – could they be any more cute?  One of the siblings looked at Miss Tomball as though she was a Disney Princess and showed her the dress.

OMG – look at her little boots!  Her little smile caused my eyes to tear…

Well, it wouldn’t be small town Texas without line dancers of a certain age…

Eventually folks from the crowd joined in with the line dancing.  Teddy and I met an older couple who had moved here from New York City.  Their lives had been terribly sophisticated with jobs in Broadway and learning Tango when they lived in Argentina.  How excited they were to find out that they could join the Tomball Line Dancing group.

I wrote this post to encourage myself that I still live in a wonderful place and it helped a little.  One day, I hope, we will get back to what to blessedly simple days like the one above, pre Covid-19.  In the meantime, think of others especially those most vulnerable and please, please wear a mask or socially distance.
