Hoe Down in Houston

Our last night in Houston and we all signed up for the Hoe Down. Who knew all these old ladies would want to shake their booties after a long day of shopping, but they did. This picture doesn't show a lot of dancers but on some songs the floor was packed.

The band was great and it was a nice end to a wonderful trip.

To grasp the hugeness (is that a word) of the vending part of the show I took a panoramic shot from the second level of the convention center.

Here's a regular shot.

I finished going through the other part of the quilts today and even went through the part I'd seen before. There are some very pretty quilts out there. Again, I took more pictures with my camera not my phone. We did get a group shot of our gang in an area they had set up for photo ops.

From left to right: Graces friend Linda ( no one in my room knows her last name), Anna, Grace, me, Elaine, Janice, Pam, Barbara Sawyer, Kathy, and kneeling on the bottom is Barbara Brown. Yes there were three Barbara's in our group.

The four of us in my room are very quiet tonight. We are all reading or playing on our tablets. I'm worried about how I'm going to fit all my purchases in my suitcase and keep under 50 lbs.

Thanks for looking.

Wow! That is some retail therapy! Solunds like the Hoe Down was fun too. I'm looking forward to seeing what you found at the show.

Looks like you could just about fit a small town into the vendor area. Have a safe trip home.
