Urban Cowboys

Its Barbecue Cookoff weekend here in Houston, which is the start of the annual Houston Live Stock Show and Rodeo.  Having never attended a rodeo before living in Houston my gracious friends have educated me on Rockies jeans, mutton-busting, calf scrambles, and all things Rodeo. To get in the spirit of Go Texan Day, I am reviewing Geoff Winningham's urban cowboy-esque images from the 70's.

Here is to a month of honky-tonk in America's fourth largest city.


  1. i love mutton busting! hilarious! and that third picture used to hang in the now defunct Houston boutique Raye- it was fabulous- printed to about a 30x 40, simply framed and hung on a flourescent pink wall!

  2. That third pictures cracks me up! Those Rocky Mountain, painted on jeans and the roach killer dies for!Great post!

    Howdy from Houston!


So glad that you stopped by for a visit...your comments make my day!
